First he found the girl, then he lost the girl – and finally, Brantley Gilbert got the girl back. Like every classic romance, Brantley and Amber Gilbert had a broken road to finding their way back to each other, but true love remains life’s best compass. And now the couple, who’ve known each other since childhood, are pleased to announce they’re expecting their first child.
“We’ve had such a hard time keeping a secret,” says the soon-to-be dad and proud owner of back-to-back platinum albums Just As I Am and Halfway To Heaven. “But the doctors wanted us to wait past the first trimester. So here we are.”
For the man who’s written every love song, every loss song, every fun song and every yearning about his now wife Amber, the coming child completes their love story – and opens a new chapter on the pair’s life together.
In the meantime, the Country Music Association Song of the Year nominee for “Dirt Road Anthem” is back on the road shortly. Kicking off the summer leg of his THE DEVIL DON’T SLEEP TOUR in Tampa on June 2 at the Midflorida Credit Union Amphitheater, he’ll be hitting the Southeast, Midwest and Heartland through the fall.
