(AUDIO) Brantley Gilbert Doesn't Have Fans, He Has Friends

June 2, 2013

Brantley Gilbert has over 1.5 million likes on Facebook, which is a lot of fans, but as far as he’s concerned, “We don’t have fans, we have friends.” Brantley explains, “The reason I say we have friends and not fans is that I believe a friend is somebody that supports you, number one. And number two, somebody that knows you. And number three, somebody that’s gonna push you. If somebody’s gonna pay ten, fifteen, twenty dollars for a ticket, there’s your support. If they listen to the albums we got out right now, they know me. And number three; pushing me. The more they come to shows, they’re keeping me rolling. It’s motivation. It’s drive. It’s everything. So, we have a lot of friends.” Brantley’s friends have helped propel his latest single, “More Than Miles” into the top ten.
