Brantley Gilbert is off the market. The singer revealed his engagement to “the girl that got away,” this morning on The Bobby Bones Show.

“I met this little girl 10 years ago.You’ll hear her in most of my songs,” he says. ““She was the one who got away for about five years,” the singer adds. “I can honestly say I’ve never been happier.”

The school teacher was the subject of many of Brantley’s songs, including “More than Miles.” The couple plan to get married next June.

Brantley Gilbert Credits Keith Urban for Helping Him Get Sober

Brantley Gilbert is three years in to a new and sober life, and even though the road wasn’t easy, he credits Keith Urban for encouraging him during some dark times. He spoke highly of the fellow country artist with Lon Helton on Country Countdown USA.

Keith’s actually been a really good dude to me. When I was making changes in my life, I was down and out, I was even in the hospital, and he showed up and spent several hours with me one day out of nowhere, just encouraging me, because I had a lot of worries about doing my job. Looking back, I was thinking, since I was 15 years old, I’d been sneaking beers, I hadn’t been sober for a lot of these things, I was nervous about writing, performing, and doing my job like I used to. He told me, ‘Man it’s a whole new world. It’s different but you’re gonna have a lot more fun with it.’ He was just uplifting and reassuring, he’s one of those guys when you meet him, you know he has a good soul. He has an awesome heart and is an awesome dude. That was a pretty impressive thing to me. You meet people in the business, and wonder how compassionate they are. But he showed up out of the blue, and I hardly knew the guy. I’ll never forget that as long as I live, and I’m indebted to him now. For somebody of that stature to take that kind of time.”

Keith has been very open about his struggles with drugs and alcohol, but after entering rehab seven years ago, he’s well beyond the other side, and in a better place.

It’s refreshing to see these guys help each other through the hard times, and encourage them to take the better path…not always the popular.
