Brantley Gilbert’s Tour Bus Caught On Fire
The lyrics to Brantley Gilbert's song Hell On Wheels seems very fitting!
Let it burn baby burn
Ridin’ 95 down the highway, sideways, runnin’ from ol’ John Law
Got the booze in the boot, move it over Bo Duke make room for a real outlaw
There’s duct tape on that license plate, a six gun in the dash
Thunder in the hood, heaven from a still, lightning in a jar
Brother I’m hell on wheels
I said I’m hell on wheels
Thankfully, no one was hurt. And he had a sense of humor about the whole thing. Brantley added this comment to the video...
"Hey y'all ... adding pyro back into the set ... working out details now ...," Gilbert jokes in the caption of his Instagram post. "In all seriousness ... thankful no one was injured ... bus drivers are safe ... I'm safe ... see y'all back on the road soon ..."
My son, Nick, and I had a chance to meet Brantley last summer at Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion. We even hung out in the bus with him before the show just shooting the breeze for a bit. At the time, his wife was still pregnant, and he was planning on revamping it from party bus to baby friendly.
He was one of the coolest guys I've ever met. And he was great with my son...who happens to be a HUGE fan.
