Brantley Gilbert Family Ties

BMI #1 Party For Dirt Road Anthem Performed By Jason Aldean

We all would like to cut down on the time it takes us to get to and from work and that’s one of the things that weigh on [lastfm link_type=""]Brantley Gilbert[/lastfm]‘s mind.  Move to Nashville or maintain a home in Georgia.  And then again, he had to consider mama.

Someone asked Brantley if he was a mama’s boy to which he replied: “A little bit, yes sir.” “When it all comes down to it, when I’m going through something I can’t handle on my own she’s the first person I call.”  Gilbert is putting a house on some riverfront property he recently bought and the advantage is he’s just minutes away from his mother, which he’s grown closer to over the years.  As a matter of fact, the song, Indiana’s Angel from his Modern Day Prodigal Son, is about his mother. Brantley says: ”You know she moved out of Indiana, moved down here with my dad, didn’t really have any friends, made some friends and just pretty much … My dad and her got divorced recently. And she’s been pretty strong through the whole thing. I’ve kind of been there for her. The roles have kind of switched a little bit. But it just kind of talks about the angel she is.”
