Brantley Gilbert and his crew are, thankfully, safe, after a fire roared through their tour bus recently.
Gilbert posted this video yesterday on Instagram, showing flames bursting out of the back of the bus:
He downplayed the incident, joking that he’s adding pyrotechnics back into his set, but then assured his fans that no one was injured in the fire. Gilbert is currently on his “The Ones That Like Me” Tour, so one can only imagine what happened to start the vehicle fire.
Moral of the story, however, is that everyone, from the bus drivers to the stage manager to Brantley himself, emerged unscathed from what must have been a terrifying situation.
Proving that he is, at heart, a country musician, however, the Instagram video is set to his hit “Hell On Wheels.” Trust a country artist to not only find the humor in what could have been a tragic situation, but also to soundtrack it perfectly WHILE promoting his own material.
Brantley and crew, we’re so sorry about the bus and anything you may have lost, but I think everyone agrees with us that we’re so grateful everyone is ok.
Guess it’s time to go tour bus shopping.
