On Monday, country singer Brantley Gilbert’s tour bus caught fire while on the road.
Thankfully, no one was hurt during the incident, and Brantley Gilbert has a good sense of humor about the situation. Gilbert posted a video to Instagram of the bus churning out smoke as the fire raged set to the soundtrack of his own song, “Hell On Wheels.” He also joked that the fire was due to the addition of pyrotechnics in his live show.
Gilbert couldn’t have predicted that a song off of his 2010 album Halfway to Heaven could have fit so perfectly over the sight of his own tour bus on fire. The lyrics to “Hell On Wheels” read:
“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”
It works out that Gilbert has a break in his The Ones That Like Me 2018 Tour schedule until March 23rd when he joins the Runaway Country Music Fest in Florida. Hopefully, that leaves plenty of time to find a replacement tour bus.
Currently, there’s no news confirming what exactly happened to cause the fire.
