Brantley Gilbert spends a lot of time on his tour bus, crisscrossing the country to bring his live show to fans. If given the choice, he’d take riding on the bus for hours upon hours over flying every time. He’s got quite a list of reasons why he doesn’t like flying.

“I hate customs,” he said. “I hate going through security. I hate layovers. I hate cancelled flights.”

Once in a while, Brantley is lucky enough to fly on a private plan. He doesn’t mind flying much then but it doesn’t happen often. “I’m kinda on a commercial budget,” he said. “I sit in an economy seat. So I would definitely rather be on my bus. I’ve really gotten comfortable with it. It is a home away from home. I can honestly say I sleep just as good there if not better than at home.”

Brantley is currently on his Hell On Wheels Tour. He’ll join Tim McGraw’s Two Lanes of Freedom Tour next month.
