Brantley Gilbert recently called the Taste of Country Nights studio to chat about his single, "One Hell of an Amen," which went No. 1 mere days later. He gushed over the song, even calling it the one he's most proud of out of all of his songs.

Gilbert sounded very happy when he called in for a chat — and for very good reason. Even though he was wary of jumping the gun, he knew his single was slated to possibly be the No. 1 song in the country. Gilbert co-wrote the sentimental tune alongside Mike Dekle and Brian Davis, who didn't want to celebrate before it was official.

"Brian’s like, 'We never count our chickens before they hatch,' but just the idea that it may go there has got us all pretty excited," Gilbert gushed. "We’re trying our best. We got fingers and toes crossed. I’m standing real goofy to make that happen but we’re really excited, man."

The Georgia native says the reason this song is so different is because of the content and the emotion in it. It's taken form as an inspiration for people in various situations, when they needed it most.

"It takes on a new meaning every day and it’s just been a blessing, man. I’ve released a lot of songs about a lot of things, but this one, it’s done something for folks … I’m more proud of this single than any I’ve released today."

Sam Alex is the host of Taste of Country Nights radio, a syndicated night show which airs on more than 60 Townsquare Media Group stations nationwide.
