Brantley Gilbert and Lindsay Ell reached the top of the radio charts this week with their current single “What Happens In A Small Town” which reached the pinnacle of both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and the Country Aircheck/Mediabase chart.

The track is from Gilbert’s Fire & Brimstone (The Valory Music Co.), and features Ell on both vocals and guitar.

“Her name is just synonymous with hard work and how much time she puts into her craft,” Gilbert told MusicRow during an interview detailing Fire & Brimstone. “She’s the real deal, has a great voice and just a guitar slinger. I mean, the way she plays makes me want to put my guitar in the case and never play it again.”

Gilbert wrote “What Happens In A Small Town” with Rhett Akins, Brock Berryhill and Josh Dunne and marks his fifth No. 1, following “Country Must Be Country Wide,” “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do,” “Bottoms Up” and “One Hell of an Amen.”

“What Happens In A Small Town” is up for CMA’s Musical Event of the Year at Wednesday’s awards, on ABC.
