Brantley Gilbert is in no rush to release new music. In a recent interview, he says while he has written more than
three dozen songs for his follow-up to 2014’s Just as I Am, but he is taking his time on putting the album together and waiting for a “gut feeling”
that he doesn’t quite have yet.
He said, “There’s still a couple gaps we need to fill. I think we’ve got a record with the songs we have, but I want an
album. I don’t want to release a CD; I want to release the real deal, so we’re just gonna take our time. We’re just being
patient right now and diligent at the same time, writing every chance I get and writing with a purpose, and when I know
I’ve got it, it’ll come out.”
We will get to hear some of the new stuff in June when he is at the Countryfest in Canal Fulton!
