Brantley Gilbert Doesn’t Care About the Money

Brantley Gilbert is turning heads with his self-penned debut single for Valory Music, “Country Must Be Country Wide,” but he’s also enjoying success as a songwriter. He co-wrote both “Dirt Road Anthem” and “My Kinda Party,” which became No. 1 songs for Jason Aldean. Brantley will be receiving plump songwriter royalty checks for those songs, but he says the money success brings doesn’t matter to him.

“I don’t need much,” he said. “I’m single. I live in a one bedroom apartment and I’ve never been a big house guy and as far as money goes I don’t spend it. I just don’t. I may buy a pack of cigarettes here and there, if I’m stressed out I’ll buy a few beers. But if my clothes get as tired as they are right now, like these guys, I’ll go buy some more, but other than that I just don’t spend money.”

Brantley’s new album, Halfway to Heaven: Deluxe Edition hits stores on September 13.
