XFINITY Theatre | Hartford, Connecticut
Country rock maverick Brantley Gilbert is bringing his outlaw ways back to the stage as he heads to Xfinity Theatre on Friday 3rd June! Joined by labelmate Justin Moore and co-writer Colt Ford, Gilbert is bringing an explosive show with a killer lineup that's sure to rock your world!
“This is why I do this: To take it to the people. I want to rock hard and tell the truth and see it in their eyes. My fans know what I’m talking about, and they come for that reason,” Gilbert says. “It’s not for everybody, but it’s its own kind of country … and being out in some of the secondary markets, the kind of places I came up, that feels just like home.”
Country rock singer/songwriter Brantley Gilbert made the decision to move to Nashville and concentrate on his music career after a near-fatal car accident at the age of 19. Once he arrived in the city, he signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell (Gilbert has written songs for both Colt Ford and Jason Aldean) and his debut album, Modern Day Prodigal Son, was released in 2009 under independent label Average Joes Entertainment. His follow up album, Halfway to Heaven, was released the following year and in 2011, he signed with Valory Music Co., a division of Big Machine Records, who re-released Halfway to Heaven with new recordings and bonus tracks. The singles from the album were well received, leading to a platinum certification in the US and to Gilbert winning the ACM New Male Artist award in 2013. Gilbert released his second album on Valory, Just as I Am, in May 2014.
