Brantley Gilbert is off to a great start in Country Music.  After writing Jason Aldean's 'Dirt Road Anthem' and 'My Kinda Party,' he's on the charts with his own song, 'Country Must Be Country Wide.'

There's no doubt that Brantley will be in the running next year as one of Country Music's Best New Artists, but he could win a CMA this year!  Brantley co-wrote 'Dirt Road Anthem' with Colt Ford, and the hit is nominated for the CMA's 'Song of the Year.' Since this award goes to the songwriters, there is a chance that this country newcomer could win a CMA award on Wednesday night.
