Brantley Gilbert and Lindsay Ell fans have been waiting on new music from either since 2017, and today they both delivered with their new power ballad “What Happens in a Small Town.”

“I remember listening to it from the first time from a minute in and I’m like ‘wow this is something really special,’“ said Ell of the single.

Anyone who’s lived in a small town knows news travels fast, and this track dives into how difficult it is to escape the memories you make with an ex when everywhere reminds you of them.

Take a listen and watch the official lyric video below!

While we’re anxiously waiting for even more music and tour news from Gilbert, Ell continues on her headlining Monster Energy Outbreak Tour next year, picking things back up in Dallas, Texas. Check out full dates HERE.

“What Happens in a Small Town” Lyrics: 

I can’t go for a ride to clear my head
‘Cause everything I pass puts you back in it
Yeah, we’re done, moving on
But you can’t be too far gone

'Cause what happens in a small town stays in a small town
Every back road we’ve ever gone down
Friday night bleachers, Sunday pews
Ain’t a county line mile without a memory of you
Every whisper, every room I walk in
Every time the bartender fills it up again
Everybody knows why I’m here
And you ain’t around

'Cause what happens in a small town stays in a small town

Oh, we said this goodbye was the last
I guess I could leave, I could run from the past
And from us, and from you
But this is where I belong, this is my home too

What happens in a small town stays in a small town
Every back road we’ve ever gone down
Friday night bleachers, Sunday pews
Ain’t a county line mile without a memory of you
Every whisper, every room I walk in
Every time the bartender fills it up again
Everybody knows why I’m here
And you ain’t around

'Cause what happens in a small town stays in a small town

And I’m still here
And every time I see that little white Jeep
Yeah, that hand-me-down Ford pulling down your street
I wonder if somebody’s in my seat
If you’re moving on, or you’re stuck like me?

'Cause what happens in a small town stays in a small town
Oh yeah

What happens in a small town stays in a small town
Every back road we’ve ever gone down
Friday night bleachers, Sunday pews
Ain’t a county line mile without a memory of you
Every whisper, every room I walk in
Every time the bartender fills it up again
Everybody knows why I’m here
And you ain’t around (you ain’t around)

'Cause what happens in a small town stays in a small town
Stays in a small town
Stays in a small town
Now I’m still here
(What happens in a small town)
I’m still here
(Stays in a small town)
I’m still here
Yeah I’m still here
I’m still here
