Brantley Gilbert just released the new video for his song, “The Ones That Like Me,” and we’ve got to say it sums up what Brantley’s all about pretty nicely. There are scenes with the country star riding his motorcycle with his biking buddies. He also takes some time to pay tribute to his friends who he’s lost along the way.
The part that’s going to melt your heart happens just before the three-minute mark, though.
Brantley shot the video while his wife, Amber, was pregnant with their first child. You see them on the front porch swing sharing some sweet moments, with Brantley feeling their little baby kick in Amber’s belly. He also steals a kiss from his beautiful wife, too.
Brantley and Amber welcomed their baby boy, Barrett Hardy-Clay Gilbert, on Nov. 11 of last year, and there’s a dedication to him at the end of the the new video.
Brantley admits he was speechless when little Barrett arrived. We’re hoping Brantley will share some new photos of the little man soon. It’s been a minute since we’ve seen Barrett, and we bet he’s grown quite a bit.
As for his 2018 touring plans, Brantley is out on “The Ones That Like Me Tour,” with dates scheduled through August.
Most of the shows will feature the high-energy set list Brantley’s fans have come to expect from their boy over the years.
This May, he’s throwing everyone a curveball with his first-ever symphony concert.
That’s right, Brantley will deliver his music with a full band and orchestra in a one-night-only show on May 4 at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater.
Brantley says of this unexpected musical adventure, “Every song I write is a piece of my life, and over time, I’ve learned a lot of other people’s lives, too. That’s special, and this seemed like a very special — and different — way to present these songs. It’s the last thing people expect, I know. But I think when folks hear how these songs fill out with the classic instruments, they’re going to be surprised at what’s there.”
