(AUDIO) BRANTLEY GILBERT: “I DON’T THINK I HANDLED QUARANTINE TOO WELL”

Some artists handled being off the road and stuck in quarantine pretty well, and then there’s Brantley Gilbert. Brantley was out on his Fire’t Up Tour when he had to come off the road six months ago, and there are some things he’s thankful for during that time.  “I’ve got to spend a lot of time with family and got to see my kids every day and my wife every day, and it’s absolutely amazing to be able t spend time with them like I’d never been able to do that since they’ve been born.”

But if he’s being honest, Brantley says, “At the same time, I will say that I don’t think I handled quarantine too well.  I just, man, I’m programmed to run a hundred miles an hour, and kinda stoppin’ and slowin’ down like that just really threw a stick in the spokes for me.  I didn’t really know how to act.  I walked about a million holes in the floor and two in the driveway and one out in the middle of the highway, but, you know, handled it the best way I knew how.”

Brantley’s new song, “Hard Days,” has been a source of comfort for a lot of his fans during the pandemic who have been experiencing hard days of their own, so he’s grateful to have been able to get that song out at this time.  The other thing that has helped Brantley keep his sanity is the construction of his new over-sized man cave, ‘The Dawg House.’  “It’s kind of the massive version of a man cave here at my house in Georgia,” says Brantley.  “That and being able to spend time with my wife and kids kept me from completely losing my marbles.”

“When all this really started I feel like we were one of the first people off the road, so we’ve been here for quite a while.  To be honest with you, I’ve got to spend a lot of time with family and got to see my kids every day and my wife every day, and it’s absolutely amazing to be able t spend time with them like I’d never been able to do that since they’ve been born.  But, at the same time, I will say that I don’t think I handled quarantine too well.  I just, man, I’m programmed to run a hundred miles an hour, and kinda stoppin’ and slowin’ down like that just really threw a stick in the spokes for me.  I didn’t really know how to act.  I walked about a million holes in the floor and two in the driveway and one out in the middle of the highway, but, you know, handled it the best way I knew how.  One thing we did do and we still are doing is I’m building what’s called ‘The Dawg House.’  It’s kind of the massive version of a man cave here at my house in Georgia.  And that and being able to spend time with my wife and kids kept me from completely losing my marbles.”
