The Brantley Gilbert concert is free with a game ticket and fans may purchase on-ice passes for an additional $20 at the Admirals office (510 W. Kilbourn Ave.), the BMO Harris Bradley Center Box Office, Ticketmaster, or by phone at (414) 227-0550. Fans must have a ticket for the game to gain entry into the BMO Harris Bradley Center for both the game and the concert. Brantley Gilbert will take the stage approximately 30 minutes after the Admirals-Barons game.
Gilbert was born and raised in the small town of Jefferson, Georgia, just outside of Athens city limits. It is that upbringing and small town influence that Gilbert credits toward allowing him to cultivate his unique sound. Gilbert’s taste in music always swayed toward a southern country rock feel, but his true-to-life testimony of heartache, trials, triumph, and success found a home in country music.
While on the road the past five years, Gilbert has built his brand through his compelling lyrics and dynamic live show – a combination that attracted a strong underground band of believers who shared Gilbert’s passion for life and music; pretty soon his following had taken on a life of its own.
These dedicated fans and their insistence on new music from Gilbert encouraged him to bring his unique style to Nashville, TN where he soon signed with Warner/Chappell Publishing and began to develop music for a debut album release on an independent record label.
On March 16, 2010, the rising star released his sophomore album, Halfway to Heaven, the follow-up to his debut national release, A Modern Day Prodigal Son. The sophomore effort peaked at #2 on the iTunes Country Album Charts, and at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Album Chart for all genres.
“The Best of Me,” a song from Gilbert’s first album was recorded by Country superstar Jason Aldean and earned a spot on his iTunes release Wide Open. Then, in August 2010, Brantley’s song “My Kinda Party,” became a #1 smash for Aldean, as well as the title track to Aldean’s platinum-selling album. The superstar’s latest single, “Dirt Road Anthem,” was also written by Gilbert.
In February 2011, Gilbert passed another career milestone when he signed with Big Machine Label Group’s imprint The Valory Music Co. -- home to superstars Reba and Jewel as well as #1 chart-topper Justin Moore. Brantley Gilbert’s first single on The Valory Music Co. debuted in the Top 40 at Country radio on its official impact date – an impressive feat by a new artist.
