"Small Town Throwdown" is a song co-written and recorded by American country rock singer Brantley Gilbert as a collaboration with Justin Moore and Thomas Rhett.[2] It was released in May 2014 as the second single from his third studio album Just as I Am.[3] The song has sold 417,000 copies in the U.S. as of October 2014.[4]

Critical reception

An uncredited Taste of Country review stated that "The song -- penned by Gilbert and the Peach Pickers -- is built to be performed live. Raw energy will make it a hit, as the four aren't breaking new ground lyrically. For all the talk of a more sentimental album after one or two high-profile news events in Gilbert's life, the first two singles seem to introduce a very loud, rebellious record. That's likely a relief to fans who save money all year to see him take the stage."[5]

Music video

The music video was directed by Shane Drake and premiered in August 2014. UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell plays a supporting role as the boss from hell.[6]
