Not too long ago I had no idea who Brantley Gilbert was. I had a lot of friends tell me they liked his version of "My Kinda Party" and "Dirt Road Anthem" better than Jason Aldean's. Thanks to these friends and YouTube I got to find out more about Brantley and became a fan. His latest album "Halfway To Heaven" is constantly crankin on my car stereo on my way to work. Now Brantley's latest single "Country Must Be Country Wide" has hit the top of the Country Charts!

I think this is just the start of many number one hits for this very talented songwriter and performer. His next single is sure to be a big hit too called "You Don't Know Her Like I Do".

Brantley will also be kicking off a tour in 2012 with another star that's currently hot on the charts, Eric Church. Their "Blood, Sweat and Beers" Tour with kick off in January.
