Who Is Brantley Gilbert?
Where is Brantley Gilbert from?
Brantley was born and raised in a small town called Jefferson, Georgia.
He began playing acoustic shows in and around his hometown.When he realized that his audience, which now included quite a few familiar faces, wanted a more "rockin'" show: "We went from these acoustic shows to a bona fide Country-Rock-Soul show that is wide open," said Gilbert.
"The Best of Me," "My Kinda Party" and "Dirt Road Anthem," all written by Brantley Gilbert, were recorded by country superstar Jason Aldean, and both became huge hits.
Currently, Brantley is signed with Big Machine Label Group's The Valory Music Co. and is in the studio recording his first record on the label, which is set to come out late this summer 2012.

My Experience - Brantley Gilbert Live in Concert
I was lucky enough to see Brantley Gilbert perform in Nashville, TN at the Riverfront Stage during CMA Fest in 2011.
This was such an awesome experience! I was two rows back and loved every minute of it. Brantley has such an energy when he performs and it transfers to the crowd.
Before the performance, many people in the audience had never heard of Brantley before and were just there for the other performers, but by the end of his set everyone was standing up and rocking out! He gained a lot of fans that day.
(All of the photos on this page were taked by me at this concert.)
This is such a great album! One of my favorites, I highly recommend it.
