NASHVILLE, TN (November 15, 2021) – Multi-Platinum selling country rocker Brantley Gilbert may look like he’s seen more Saturday nights than Sunday mornings, yet there’s a softer side to the singer/songwriter that his BG Nation has seen a glimpse of on previous albums (“Picture on the Dashboard,” “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do,” “Man That Hung The Moon”). The Georgia native married his childhood sweetheart and is a smitten father of two, and that unconditional love is showcased in his new song arriving via The Valory Music Co. this Friday, Nov. 19, “How To Talk To Girls.” Pre-save the song HERE.
Co-written with Brock Berryhill, Brian Wayne Davis, Brandon Day, Chase McGill, Josh Phillips, Taylor Phillips and Michael Ray, “How To Talk To Girls” was written with Gilbert’s wife Amber and daughter Braylen in mind.
“I started writing this one with my wife and daughter in mind,” shares Gilbert. “I’ve known Amber since we were kids. I’ve been married to her for 6 years now, and I’m still in awe of her. Then my daughter came along, and I realized I still struggle to find the right words to say to the girls I love.”
“How To Talk To Girls” presents a vulnerable side that reminds fans he’s more than meets the eye:
And I remember two pink lines
Ready or not, she’s on her way
Yeah, she got her momma’s eyes
Well I hope she don’t act like me
You know they say
You pay for your raisin’
I’m tryin’ to raise her
But what do you say
When you can’t tell ‘em no
Well I can’t even think about down the road
‘Cause this angel hangs on every word I say
She’s gettin’ so much more from me than my last name
Everything, just like her momma
She’s got me at a loss for words
I guess I’m still learnin’
How to talk to girls
Last week, Gilbert released a music video for “Gone But Not Forgotten” to celebrate Veterans Day, a song penned with Berryhill, Jason Blaine and Jay Brunswick in 2018, to honor servicemen and women, first responders and all those who we rely on that serve and protect, keeping us safe in our day-to-day lives. Watch the video HERE.
