What at first appears to be an overnight success story is exactly the opposite. Brantley Gilbert who hails from Jefferson Georgia started out trying to make it in the business before 2006, that’s when Gilbert’s first album on Average Joe’s records, “Modern Day Prodigal Son”, was originally set to be released, but Gilbert was dropped by the record label a week before the albums were to be delivered to stores. Gilbert went on to release two albums, all the while trying to get his foot in the door as a serious performer.  In February 2011, Brantley left the old record label to join with Big Machine Records’ Valory Music Group, where he has charted a top 20 song and still climbing with “Country Must Be Country Wide.”
Brantley Gilbert may never have to wonder where his next meal is coming from because of his songwriting ability. Gilbert is fortunate to have several friends that have taken his songs and made them huge hits, while many others in the country music genre call on Gilbert’s songwriting skills to help them get their next big hit song. One of the people Brantley Gilbert calls friend is Jason Aldean who has made Gilbert a millionaire. Aldean has been singing Gilbert’s songs for years, his two biggest to date that made Brantley his first million were  “My Kinda Party” and “Dirt Road Anthem” the later put Gilbert on easy street as far as music royalties are concerned. Aldean has also recorded Brantley Gilbert’s “The Best of Me,” which is available on the Wal-Mart exclusive and iTunes release of his 2009 “Wide Open” album. Currently Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Colt Ford and others are either holding or have recorded songs written by the up and coming next country super-star Brantley Gilbert, who is scheduled to perform in Abilene December 16th.
