Twenty-nine-year-old Georgia native Brantley Gilbert has done his best to keep the spirit of outlaw country alive since bursting on the scene with his 2009 debut “A Modern Day Prodigal Son,” but he really comes into his own on dynamite third release “Just As I Am.”

Brantley Gilbert CDMining much of the same turf as Eric Church, though with a style all his own, Gilbert struts his way through 11 winning tunes. “If You Want a Bad Boy” is the perfect lid-lifter, and he later scores with “17 Again,” “Bottoms Up,” personal favorite “My Baby’s Guns N’ Roses,” “One Hell of an Amen” and “Let It Ride.” Enjoy, y’all.
