(AUDIO) Brantley Gilbert Lived His Song "More Than Miles"

May 5, 2013

Brantley Gilbert always says his music is a reflection of his real life, and that’s definitely true of his latest single, “More Than Miles.” Before he got his record deal, Brantley would come to Nashville for writing appointments and he says, “I was actually on my way up to the writing appointment from Georgia. There was some stuff going on back home that I really thought I needed to take care of and priority wise I had to get them in order and I hadn’t. A little emotional battle, I guess you’d say, about halfway to Nashville, around Chattanooga.” Brantley never made it to the writing appointment because he says, “I actually ended up turning around and going back home and taking care of the situation.” He ended up rescheduling the writing appointment with his co-writer, John Eddie, and when they finally got together, Brantley explained what happened the first time around. They ended up writing about his experience, which ended up being “More Than Miles.”

“I was actually on my way up to the writing appointment from Georgia. There was some stuff going on back home that I really thought I needed to take care of and priority wise I had to get them in order and I hadn’t. A little emotional battle, I guess you’d say, about halfway to Nashville, around Chattanooga, and I actually ended up turning around and going back home and taking care of the situation. But going on down the road, we rescheduled the appointment with John Eddie and I got in there with him and we ended up writing a song about the first time I was on the way up to write with him. And we came up with “More than Miles.”
