Brantley Gilbert has done some growing up in the past few years with his marriage to his wife, Amber, and his decision to stop drinking. Just because he’s living a sober, married life, you shouldn’t assume Brantley’s concerts are any less rowdy than they’ve always been.
“I think you can watch me at a show and I feel like it should be visible I am having the time of my life,” Brantley says.
Nowadays, instead of just getting wild with his friends back home, Brantley chooses to have his fun with the fans that come see his shows.
He adds, “Those shows are really my parties now, and I mean that’s one hell of a party. When you get 10-15,000 people losing their minds, that’s fun. I mean that’s a party. And being able to get up there and act a fool and have fun with them and it not be all straight business and all serious, I’m a fan of chaos and mayhem.”
That wild vibe can be heard in Brantley’s latest hit, “The Weekend,” so it’s clear he hasn’t lost any of his edge since he put down the bottle.
“Not drinking and all, I still have a blast,” Brantley says, “I can promise you that.”
“The Weekend” is the first single from Brantley’s upcoming studio album, “The Devil Don’t Sleep,” due out Jan. 27. You can catch Brantley’s insane live show on The Devil Don’t Sleep Tour kicking off Feb. 2 in Reading, Pennsylvania. He’s bringing along Tucker Beathard and Luke Combs as the supporting acts.
