Gilbert hails from Jefferson, Georgia and cites his southern roots as the basis for his lyrics. It wasn't until a near fatal car accident in which his truck flipped over several times on the highway that Gilbert realized that life is short and precious. Following a lengthy recovery, he then focused his energies towards his passion and embarked on a full-time career in music. He was picked up for an indie record deal in 2005 and was supposed to release his debut album, A Modern Day Prodigal Son, but he was dropped from the line-up before the album hit stores. Brantley Gilbert toured constantly, and performed as many concerts as venues would have him in order to secure another deal.
Years of constant touring earned Gilbert a record contract with Average Joe's Entertainment who released his debut album in 2009. Although, no singles were released, the album did appear on the Billboard Country Albums chart in 2009 and garnered him attention in and around Nashville. Gilbert was noticed by Jason Aldean who re-recorded Gilbert's "My Kinda Party" for his 2010 album of the same name. The single became a #2 hit for Aldean and legitimated Gilbert as a songwriter. Aldean also recorded the Gilbert penned track, "Dirt Road Anthem", which serves as his current single and is climbing up the Billboard country charts. Brantley Gilbert tour dates were vigorously scheduled throughout the Southeast and he was soon picked up to a major deal with the Valory Music Group.
Gilbert scored his first charting single with "Country Must Be Country Wide", in 2011. The single is currently rising up the country charts and his sophomore album, Halfway to Heaven, has been in stores since 2010. The aspiring country star has been on the road touring for the better part of 2010-11 to promote his records. In addition to individual Brantley Gilbert tour dates, the country rocker has signed on to Willie Nelson's Country Throwdown Tour, which is playing fairgrounds and festivals throughout Summer, 2011.
