Before he reconnected with his now-wife, Amber, Brantley Gilbert had sworn off the idea of ever tying the knot. He’d had some failed relationships in the past, but he never forgot about Amber — the one that got away.
He says, “She always had a very, very, very big piece of my heart. I think that had a lot to do with why I never could give a lot of myself away.”
After several years apart, Brantley met up with Amber again on June 16, 2014. He says with a laugh, “When she walked around the corner, it wasn’t anything I could do. All that ‘single for life’ s*** just went out the window.”
Now that he’s tied the knot with Amber, Brantley says life couldn’t get any sweeter.
“She’s my best friend, too,” Brantley explains. “There’s nothing like having somebody that loves every single bit of you, and that you love the same way, to actually, really share it with. Everything that’s mine is yours. Every bit of joy in my heart, you know, every smile on my face is yours. It’s awesome to be able to share that with somebody.”
Brantley is currently climbing the country chart with his latest hit, “Stone Cold Sober.”
