As country star Brantley Gilbert hits the road with Tim McGraw, he talked to SheKnows about tour preparations, new music and raising awareness for the 50 million Americans who suffer from hunger issues.
Last week, we talked with country star Brantley Gilbert about his personal life with singer and actress Jana Kramer, but as we learned, that’s only the half of it. He's also been in the studio recording music for an upcoming album and in his spare time Brantley and his fans, the BG Nation, have been raising awareness for a charitable organization called Outnumber Hunger. We talked to Brantley about the upcoming tour, new music and how he gives back while on the road. SK: What kind of feedback and support did you get from your BG Nation when you were supporting the cause? We weren't raised to take, we were raised to give the shirt off our back to anyone in need. I can honestly say that everything I've ever listened to has influenced me or motivated me in one way, form or fashion. I think it's just a conglomerate of everybody's influences that comes out on the record, and live as well.
When people ask me why are you singing a drinking song if you don't drink anymore, because when I did drink I drank enough to sing drinking songs for the rest of my life! The 28-year-old says his new set of tunes will still include songs about romance, even though it’s a painful topic for him right now.
Ironically, though their romantic relationship has ended, Gilbert and Kramer will both perform at Tropical Nights 2014, which takes place Feb.
Gilbert and his labelmate Thomas Rhett are in the midst of the 2011 Taste of Country Christmas Tour.
Next year, Gilbert will hit the road with Eric Church on his new headlining trek, the Blood, Sweat and Beer Tour, which will also feature the Cadillac Black, Blackberry Smoke, Sonia Leigh, Jon Pardi and Drake White.
1 as a songwriter, which helped brace him for how it felt to be the writer and artist of his own chart-topping hit. Brantley is set to embark on Tim McGraw’s Two Lanes of Freedom tour with Love and Theft. I’ve just been having nightmares about him knocking on my bus door saying it's time to work out.
You know, the process Tim went through in picking the band, he kept me in the loop on it and the whole process has been really cool. What other music have you been working on for this new album we’ve been hearing about?
And I can tell you… of course [Jana's] got a song on there because my albums always attach to my life.
I will say - you never know how long it's gonna take something to grow, you never know if you're gonna hit in a certain market. The singer, who was engaged to fellow country artist Jana Kramer until their split last month, says everything he needs to say in his next album. Dierks Bentley, Billy Currington, Gilbert and Kramer will each headline a separate night of live performance at the luxurious oceanfront getaway, which also offers excursion opportunities with the artists, VIP upgrades, golf, spa packages and more. This one is extra sweet, however, as it’s his first chart-topping hit as a songwriter and performer. So there’s been a lot of crazy stuff happen between the end of that record and the beginning of this one.
I think in general, especially in country music, the whole country rallies together when we know there’s a problem. I think a lot of people are unaware, so we’re just trying to play the best role we can to spread awareness. I know my label’s president and I knew going into this thing that he had the best work ethic in the business. But the whole label has been making a valued effort and I’m just so glad to be a part of it.
