Brantley Gilbert Talking About Why He Decided to Get Sober

brantley_gilbert

At a panel during Billboard‘s Touring Conference last week, the newly engaged Brantley Gilbert shared a few personal reflections about his decision to get sober. After battling a serious drinking addiction that intensified during his meteoric rise to fame, he made a lifestyle change in December, 2011, and cut alcohol from his life.

As his songs hit the top of the charts and his shows sold scores of tickets, he confessed to his manager that he felt like God was letting him do “a lot of awesome things,” but he wasn’t enjoying it.  “I told him that success wasn’t punching me in the chest like it should be,” he said.

He sought professional help in December, 2011, and said he received a wealth of support from friends in the industry, including Keith Urban, who visited Gilbert at the hospital.

“I was worried I wouldn’t be able to do my job because I had always had a little bit of a buzz on,” he said. “Keith told me I was going to be alright.”

Find out what two places Brantley says he feels the most at home by reading the full article and interview with Brantley at Billboard.com.
