Country music artist Brantley Gilbert has teamed up with NASCAR for an new anthem--- "Not Like Us"! Listen to it here.

Country music star Brantley Gilbert’s kind of blue collar country has always thrashed a little harder, dug a little deeper, and reached a little farther. Given the South Georgia native’s passion for the open road, when NASCAR was looking for artists to team with vignettes about their drivers, the artist was top of mind. And with Gilbert in the studio, there was plenty of great music to choose from. Ultimately “Not Like Us,” with it’s swaggering lead guitar blaze over a terse acoustic part that punched, was deemed the perfect song for NASCAR’s all-in kind of racing.

“We wrote this out on the road, and it’s got that feel,” Gilbert says of the song’s serious throttle in a statement. “It’s funny how everybody wants to be – like the first verse says – a big dog, but when you get right down to it, wanting and being are two different things. When you look at NASCAR, what those drivers do, there isn’t anybody in the world like’em.”

As Philip Metz, Managing Director, Entertainment Marketing & Music of NASCAR, says of the pairing, “This piece featuring Brantley Gilbert’s “Not Like Us” and NASCAR is part of our yearlong marketing campaign that tells the story of the NASCAR season through the lens of the drivers. We’re focusing on showcasing our brightest stars, the best tracks and putting it all to great music, giving fans more of what they want. This particular piece is focused on Chase Elliott and Talladega, as there’s no one better to explain to fans what they should expect to see at that track.”

“Not Like Us” Lyrics

Every small town’s got its bozo
Big dog steady running the show
Yeah two tattoos, sleeves rolled up
He’s all swoled up and nowhere to go

Everybody’s rolling around in four wheel drives
And jacking up their trucks
Yeah they think they living it up

Not like us
We’re on another level
These folks round here
Two-stepping with the devil
I’m calling yall’s bluff
Y’all drinking, y’all smoking it up
Show me what you got boy
I’ll show you that you’re not like us
Wanna be, yeah you know you wanna be like us
Wanna be, but you’re never gonna be like us
You’re not like us

Everybody likes to light it up with your buddies
Get to buzzing like a neon light
Hit the strip, get lit man, take another sip
Hit the lick on a Saturday night

Yeah they closing down and throwing down
Until the sun comes up
Yeah they think they living it up man

But not like us
We’re on another level
These folks round here
Two-stepping with the devil
I’m calling yall’s bluff
Y’all drinking, y’all smoking it up
Show me what you got boy
I’ll show you that you’re not like us
Wanna be, yeah you know you wanna be like us
Wanna be, but you’re never gonna be like us
You’re not like us

Everybody’s rolling around in four wheel drives
And jackin’ up their trucks
Closing down, and throwing down
Until the sun comes up
You say if I were one of y’all
You know I got you all
Everyone of us want all of, all of y’all

Watch us
We’re on another level
These folks round here
Two-stepping with the devil
I’m calling yall’s bluff
Y’all drinking, y’all smoking it up
Show me what you got boy
I’ll show you that you’re not like us
Wanna be, yeah you know you wanna be like us
Wanna be, but you’re never gonna be like us
You’re not like us
