Brantley Gilbert is currently headlining his Hell on Wheels Tour with special guests Uncle Kracker and Greg Bates. Bonding with them as well as his own band and crew while on the road is a priority of Brantley’s. He learned how important those bonds are while touring with Toby Keith and Eric Church.

“The camaraderie that we’ve experienced between crews and bands is something I’ve taken away from both tours,” Brantley said. “Just seeing the way that everybody gets along…we’re forming friendships that ride the rest of our careers, probably the rest of our lives.”

Brantley spent time writing with Eric Church when they toured together. Even though Brantley has wrapped his dates on Eric’s tour, the pair are still in contact. “We actually formed a friendship,” Brantley said. “And we still text and talk and he’s just a great guy, a great performer and we really got a chance to see how he runs his show and there were definitely things we’re gonna take away from that one.”

Brantley’s latest single, “More Than Miles,” is at radio now.
