The Brantley Gilbert concert is something worth seeing

Country singer, Brantley Gilbert performed his new album Let It Ride, at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena, on May 10th, at 7:30 p.m. 

Performer Brian Davis was his opening act, accompanied by Eric Paslay.  Then, Brantley started his songs off with a bang, singing his top hit, “Kick It In The Sticks.”  The concert overall was phenomenal, as well as organized. 

It lasted approximately 3 hours from start to finish.  He even sang some of the songs that were not on his set list to play.

The stage setup and props left me speechless, especially the short video that they showed at the beginning about Brantley and his band.  

Brantley’s singing was amazing and John Merlino’s (lead guitar player) notes sounded very crisp and clear.

Brianna Dobbins, a student at BFA, who was at the concert stated, “It was probably the best concert I’ve ever seen.”

The concert was mostly very energetic, but also had a soft side in some of his songs like; You don’t know her like I do and My Kind Of Crazy.

If you like down to earth country music, I would not pass up the chance to see Brantley Gilbert in concert. 

Brantley started singing in his hometown, of Jefferson, Georgia.  His first album “Halfway To Heaven” was released on March 16, 2010, sparking his career.

Ever since then Brantley has become a role model for many young men.  Brantley Gilbert states, “I’ve realized that life can be very short, and everyone should take advantage of it.  If you’re gonna live, do something with it. Make it great.”
