Brantley Keith Gilbert (born January 20, 1985) is an American country singer, songwriter and record producer from Jefferson, Georgia. He was originally signed to Colt Ford's label, Average Joes Entertainment, where he released Modern Day Prodigal Son and Halfway to Heaven. He is now signed to the Valory division of Big Machine Records where he has released three studio albums--a deluxe edition of Halfway to Heaven, Just as I Am, The Devil Don't Sleep, and eleven country chart entries, four of which have gone to number one. He also wrote Jason Aldean's singles "My Kinda Party" and "Dirt Road Anthem".

Career

Singing career

Brantley Gilbert went to Nashville as a songwriter, signed to Warner Chappell Publishing.[3] He continued performing at local venues. In 2009, he released his debut album, Modern Day Prodigal Son, under independent label Average Joes Entertainment. He followed with Halfway to Heaven in 2010.[4]

In 2011, he signed with Valory Music Co., a division of Big Machine Records, who re-released Halfway to Heaven with new recordings and bonus tracks. The album was produced by Dann Huff. Its first two singles, "Country Must Be Country Wide" and "You Don't Know Her Like I Do", both went to number one on the Hot Country Songs chart. After them, "Kick It in the Sticks" peaked at number 34, and "More Than Miles" at number 7 on Country Airplay. He won the ACM New Male Artist award in 2013.[5]

Gilbert's second Valory album, Just as I Am, was released in May 2014. Its lead single, "Bottoms Up", also reached number one. The second single, "Small Town Throwdown", featured guest vocals from labelmates Thomas Rhett and Justin Moore. The third single, "One Hell of an Amen", became Brantley's fourth number one hit in 2015. The album's fourth single, "Stone Cold Sober", is from the Platinum Edition of Just As I Am.

Songwriting

In addition to his original work, Gilbert has written songs that Colt Ford and Jason Aldean have recorded. The songs "Dirt Road Anthem" (co-written and originally recorded by him and Colt Ford) and "My Kinda Party", were released on Aldean's 2010 album My Kinda Party. "My Kinda Party" was originally recorded by Gilbert on Modern Day Prodigal Son, while "Dirt Road Anthem" was on Halfway to Heaven. Aldean has also covered Gilbert's "The Best of Me", available on the Wal-Mart exclusive and iTunes release of his 2009 album Wide Open.[6]

Performances:

Gilbert Accompanies other artists in 2015 in London, in the O2 Arena for the Country2Country music festival.

Personal life

It was announced in September 2012 that Brantley Gilbert was dating country music singer and actress Jana Kramer. They met at the CMT Music Awards in June 2012. They got engaged on January 20, 2013, his 28th birthday.[7] They split in August 2013.[8][9][10]

In June 2015, Gilbert married Georgia schoolteacher Amber Cochran in a small ceremony at his home.[11] He admitted that she was the girl who inspired his singles "You Don't Know Her Like I Do", "More Than Miles", among several others.[12] On July 24, while on the honeymoon, his grandfather died.

In 2013, Gilbert embarked on an eight-day USO tour to entertain American service members stationed in Italy and Kuwait.[13]

Brantley Gilbert was in a near-fatal truck accident when he was 19.[14] Gilbert is an active Christian, and his song "My Faith In You", from his album Just as I Am, speaks of his faith. In May 2015, Gilbert got a tattoo showing his support of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.[15]

In 2017, on his "The Devil Don't Sleep" tour, he announced he would be a father in November; on November 11, 2017, Brantley Gilbert and wife Amber welcomed son Barrett Hardy-Clay Gilbert.[16]
