Brantley Gilbert

Brantley Gilbert built a grassroots fanbase in and around Georgia before trying his luck in Nashville. His first success was as a songwriter, as he helped pen a number of Colt Ford songs, as well as Jason Aldean’s ‘Dirt Road Anthem.’ Ford signed him to his Average Joes record label, but after releasing a couple of singles, Gilbert moved to the Valory Music Co. Along the way, he began to clean up his bad boy image. He quit drinking and made a commitment to every aspect of his craft. A high profile engagement with Jana Kramer ended in the summer of 2013. ‘Just as I Am’ is his third studio album. So far, he’s scored four Top 10 hits and three Gold singles.

  • Birthday: January 20, 1985
  • Top Songs: ‘Country Must Be Country Wide,’ ‘Bottoms Up’
  • Fun Fact: Brantley was a pretty good baseball player in high school, and he still plays competitive softball when he can. He also played football and did a little lifting.
