Brantley Gilbert just put the finishing touches on a brand new home near his hometown in Georgia, but he hasn’t had much of a chance to enjoy it. He’s currently crisscrossing the country on his Hell on Wheels Tour and spends most of his time with his band and crew.
“The downside to being on the road is missing folks at home,” he said. “I’m real close with my family and being away from them is hard.”
Spending so much time on the bus makes the meaning of ‘home’ change a bit for Brantley. “It’s almost like this is home and the bus is your house,” he said. “I spend more time with my band than I do my close family, so it’s like a home away from home.”
Brantley will perform on Thursday’s CMA Awards which air on ABC at 8p|7c. He’s nominated for New Artist of the Year. Brantley just released his latest single, “More Than Miles,” to radio.
