Brantley Gilbert's new single is a duet with Lindsay Ell called "What Happens In a Small Town," and even though this is the first time they've really worked together, Brantley remembers exactly when he became a fan of Lindsay's. It was at the same time that his now-brother-in-law also became a fan....perhaps even with a bit of a crush!

“When my wife and I got back together – this was before we were married – when we get back together, her mom and her brother wanted to go to the Opry," Brantley recalls in a statement from his label. "And we went to the Opry and she [Lindsay Ell] was playing. 

"And I’ve been a fan since, but my brother-in-law was a bigger fan than I am.

In addition to their duet, Brantley and Lindsay are also on the bill for Tailgate Fest, coming to SilverLakes in Norco, August 17th-18th, and that has Brantley acting with a bit of caution. "I told ‘em that throughout this process, we’re going to have to keep a close eye on Grayson.”
