Brantley Gilbert Isn't Afraid to Talk About His Past

February 27, 2018

Although Brantley Gilbert is now sober and happily married to the love of his life, and together they have a new son, at one point in time, things weren't going so great for the "The Ones That Like Me" singer. But he hopes that being honest about his struggles will help other people.

“I think you meet people in life who are maybe aren’t ashamed, but just uncomfortable sharing their story," muses Brantley in a statement from his label. "I’m not that guy. I’m the kind of guy that says, you know, what you see is what you get.

"But also, I feel like my story is interesting but it’s an important story for me to share," he continues. "You know my past is something that made me who I am, and I know that’s an old worn out cliché but it’s so true. And I’m proud of my story.

"There was a time when I was a person that I wasn’t so proud of. But I made changes and I’m a fighter and I beat it and I beat it every day. And I don’t mind sharing that story.”
