Brantley Gilbert is known for his high-energy live shows. He has settled into a routine before he hits the stage. First, he takes a quiet moment to pray either by himself or with his band. Then, all bets are off.
“I’m jumping around like I’m about to go into a boxing ring or something,” he said. “The whole band and crew, we’re all giving fist bumps and just getting pumped up, like we’re fixin’ to play a Friday night football game. It’s pretty intense backstage before a show. We go out there, try our best, come out with all guns blazing and put ‘em back in the holster still smoking. It’s a good time.”
Brantley is currently a special guest on Tim McGraw’s Two Lanes of Freedom Tour. His latest single, “More Than Miles,” is Top 10 at radio.
