Brantley Gilbert’s tour bus literally turned into ‘Hell on Wheels’ just as his song suggests when the vehicle went up in flames recently.

Sharing the horrific news with fans via his Instagram, Gilbert let everyone know that he and the rest of his team were not injured during the incident. Hinting at the idea that the pyrotechnics of his show sparked something wrong, the country singer also reassured followers that he’d be back to his touring run in the next couple weeks.

“Hey y’all…. adding pyro back into the set…. working out details now… In all seriousness…. thankful no one was injured…. bus drivers are safe…. I’m safe…. see y’all back on the road soon….,” Gilbert wrote alongside the scary video clip.

It’s a terrifying moment, nonetheless, for Gilbert since he sometimes brings his friends and family out to enjoy the travel he endures during his touring. He recently introduced one of his concert crowds to his wife and newborn son, Barrett, when they made a brief appearance in between songs. The show meant even more that time around since it was a hometown performance and his family got to watch on from the side.

“Getting to share my work with the two most important people in my life….,” he mentioned in another social media post.

Gilbert will head back out on the road in a couple weeks’ time, with tour dates and festival appearances ranging throughout the summer. More information about his shows can be found on Gilbert’s official website.
