Brantley Gilbert, ‘Just As I Am’ – Everything You Need to Know in 60 Seconds
Subscribe to Taste of Country on
Brantley Gilbert‘s ‘Just As I Am’ album is now in stores, containing the Georgia-raised singer’s No. 1 hit ‘Bottoms Up’ and his new single ‘Small Town Throwdown.’ Gilbert says he doesn’t write about anything he hasn’t lived, and doesn’t record anything he hasn’t written meaning each of the nine remaining songs is also a page — or chapter — from his diary.
For Gilbert, the last four years have brought a high-profile relationship and breakup, the loss of a friend, sobriety and a lesson in loyalty. It’s all on ‘Just As I Am,’ but only the singer holds the keys to which songs are about what, or who. In some cases it’s pretty obvious, so our country-insider had no trouble pulling the curtain back on this project.
Here’s everything you need to know about Brantley Gilbert’s ‘Just As I Am’ in 60 seconds. Gilbert will be performing at the Taste of Country Music Festival, June 13-15 in Hunter, N.Y.
