“We started this tour more digitally-driven. We tried to do some bigger screens and different aspects of that but I missed all my fire so we brought all of those effects back. It’s been awesome. The guys have put together some awesome content. We always change the set a little bit and change the production a little bit. I’ve got a wonderful organization that comes together as a big family and a big team. They make the process pretty easy most of the time.”
“I always start the writing process again the minute a record comes out. I’ll write lightly in the beginning and more so as time moves forward as I start centering in on what this chapter of my life is and what songs tell the stories the best. We’ve been writing for a while and we’re starting to put the story together now and really see which songs tell the story the best. We’re starting to center in on what could be the next record. I don’t know how close we are to going into the studio but we’re definitely moving in that direction.”
When The Ones That Like Me wraps in August, Gilbert is joining Kid Rock and Wheeler Walker Jr. for the Red Blooded Rock N Roll Extravaganza Tour.
