With New Tour, Album & Baby on the Way, Brantley Gilbert Says “Busy Beats Bored”

“Busy beats bored,” according to Brantley Gilbert. One thing is for sure, Brantley will not be bored over the course of the next few months.

Brantley will kick off his Not Like Us Tour with Lindsay Ell and Michael Ray in June, in addition to playing numerous summer festivals and fairs. Brantley is also hard at work on his upcoming fifth studio album, with lead single, “What Happens in a Small Town,” featuring Lindsay Ell, climbing to No. 22 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week.

But that’s not all: Brantley and wife Amber are expecting their second child—a girl—around September. However, it doesn’t sound like Brantley is sweating his full plate of professional and personal responsibilities.

“Aw, man, I don’t even know yet what to expect with the new baby [laughing],” says Brantley. “I guess we’ll find out, but, you know, the way I look at it is busy beats bored, and for what we do for a living, it’s hard for there to be a lot of structure ’cause a lot of it is last minute stuff. But as long as my top two priorities are being the best husband and the best dad that I know how to be, then we’ll figure the rest of it out.”
