Grand Ole Opry guest artist Brantley Gilbert was born January 20, 1985 in Jefferson, Georgia. He mixes a little bit of rock and a little bit of country music into his songs, which have been released on two albums. He has also written songs that have been performed by artists like Colt Ford and Jason Aldean. Gilbert started his career in various venues in his hometown, however, he realized that the acoustic shows were not satisfying enough to his rock-thirty fans and he eventually moved to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue a stronger career.
Gilbert’s first album, Modern Day Prodigal Son, was released in mid-2009 under Average Joe’s Entertainment. His second album, Halfway to Heaven, was released in 2010. The next year, he signed with Big Machine Records’ Valory Music Group division and re-released the album. In the summer of 2012, Gilbert went on tour with Toby Keith as his opener, and, in July, he announced his first headlining tour that would consist of appearances by artists like Uncle Kracker, Greg Bates and Brian Davis. He announced a second leg of the tour in November, which would open with artist Kip Moore.
On his album Halfway to Heaven, Gilbert has released two Number One hits, “Country Must Be Country Wide” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I do.” Both songs were also certified Gold. His single “Kick It in the Sticks” peaked at Number Twenty-Nine on the U.S. Country charts, as well.
Gilbert’s songwriting career has taken off as well as his singing career. He has written songs that have been performed by Colt Ford and Jason Aldean, including “Dirt Road Anthem” and “My Kinda Party.” Aldean has also covered Gilbert’s song, “The Best of Me.”
