Brantley Gilbert Is Actually a Softie


Brantley Gilbert is a country artist with a tough exterior, often clad in black and giving off the impression of a thick skinned, rockabilly guy. However, the actual softy admitted to Country Countdown USA in a recent interview about his wedding that he is a lot more sentimental than fans would have expected.

The ceremony was awesome. I’ll let you in on a little secret: I cried like a baby. She’s got a piece of my heart that nobody’s ever touched before.

The fact that Brantley is more of an emotional guy than his hard appearance tends to show should come as no surprise to fans, considering his crooning tunes that are, actually, about his wife and their years apart.

You’ll hear her in most of my songs. She was the one who got away for about five years … I can honestly say I’ve never been happier.

Brantley also admitted that the couple is already talking about having children, sharing that his wife, Amber Cochran, will likely have to be the one to lay down the law with the little ones.

Well, the way I treat Sylo like I love my dog, right, and he can’t do a whole lot wrong. Like, if he does, he does somethin’ and he’s a pitbull but he’s cute as hell, I don’t know how that works. He’s just awesome. She says I let him get away with anything, I’m just gonna be worse with kids. She says I’m gonna be putty.

And the fairytale ending continues for Brantley Gilbert…
