Being only one of four country artists with back-to-back platinum certified albums, Brantley Gilbert is a standout country artist known for his hits such as “Bottoms Up,” “Stone Cold Sober,” “My Kind of Crazy,” and many others. Whether it’s raising hell, standing tall or bottoming out, Gilbert’s truth speaks to the heart of blue-collar life in the 21st century: hard working, fun loving and deeply committed to the people he loves.
Not for the faint of heart or the hardcore traditionalists, Gilbert’s songs deliver slow burn electric guitars, crashing drums and acoustic flourishes to define the heavily country fused with hard rock edge of his musical attack.
“I don’t make fast albums: I have to live my life, let it sink in and then write the songs,” Gilbert explains. “For me I don’t rush the music. I want it to be right. But then I also want to give the fans as much music as they deserve. To me, this is a conversation- and these songs are catching them up, telling them about what’s happened since my last album.”
Brantley Gilbert’s success includes countless award-winning singles, albums, and crowd-drawing tours. Gilbert has also done USO Tours, put together and headlined a benefit show for 80,000 on the river bank in Chattanooga after a sniper killed five servicemen at a recruiting facility, met with countless Make-A-Wish kids, and wrote the #1 “One Hell of an Amen” to celebrate a life lost after a hard fight to cancer. He believes he’s been put here to serve as a talisman for his fans. Singing for the unrepresented, the unheard and the unseen, he gives voice to the heart of America.
