VACATION RENTALS ALONG THE ALABAMA GULF COAST

Brantley Gilbert

           
Brantley Gilbert was born and raised in the small town of Jefferson, Georgia, just outside the Athens city limits. It is that upbringing and small-town influence Brantley credits for cultivating his unique sound. With well-known rock bands REM and the B-52s having roots nearby, Brantley’s taste in music always swayed toward a rock feel, but his true-to-life testimony of heartache, trials, triumph and success found a home in country music. Brantley quickly realized that his acoustic shows—however intimate—didn’t satisfy his audience’s thirst for his rock-infused country music. In order to meet their demand, Brantley formed a band. “We went from these acoustic shows to a bona fide country-rock-soul show that is wide open,” says Gilbert. “Even when we play a ballad it’s high energy.”
