Big Machine Label Group has released the first teaser from the upcoming Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute To Motley Crue coming August 19th. While the album’s first single is Justin Moore’s take on the classic “Home Sweet Home,” which impacts radio on July 1st and the video features all members of Motley Crue, we get a sneak peek of“Girls Girls Girls” by Brantley Gilbert.
In a video released on YouTube, Motley’s Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx discuss how muscular Gilbert’s voice makes the song sound.
“The guitars when it comes in, you’re like, ‘Is this Motley or what is this? and you hear this kind of slide guitars coming in,” Sixx explains. “It starts to take you on that journey and then his voice, that’s like what separates his voice from [Neil’s] voice. You’re like, ‘Okay, wait! This isnt–What’s happening here?’ And it’s really a strong version — you know, it sounds musclely. It sounds like a great! He’s gonna rip it up live!”
“You don’t want to screw with something like ‘Girls Girls Girls’ that much.”
“He played this one pretty close to what the original is,” Neil states, “but you know, sometimes you wanna stay close to it. You don’t want to screw with something like ‘Girls Girls Girls’ that much.
Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute To Motley Crue will feature fresh takes on 15 of the band’s biggest hits covered by some of country music’s biggest names, including Florida Georgia Line with “If I Die Tomorrow,” Big & Rich with “SOS (Same Ol’ Situation),” LeAnn Rimes with “Smokin’ In The Boys Room,” Rascal Flatts with “Kickstart My Heart” and many more.
