Brantley Gilbert spent last fall on the road with Kid Rock, but he’s headlining his own party this fall when his “Not Like Us” tour hits Tampa’s MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre on September 28.

Michael Ray and Lindsay Ell are set to open the show, and tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 19 at 10 a.m.

Gilbert, 34, makes a blend of country, rock, hip-hop and gospel, and Jason Aldean even tapped Ludacris for a remix of Gilbert’s CMA Song Of The Year-nominated song “Dirt Road Anthem.” Gilbert has also been working on a full-length that’ll see release via Valory/Big Machine Records.

The only other Florida show is on September 27 at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville. More information is available via
