Brantley Gilbert Supports Our Soldiers And Encourages Other Artists To Do the Same

Advertisements

Country music superstars have a rich, honored, and humble history of supporting our men and women overseas through their support of military organizations, charity work, and donating their time and talents to USO performances.

Add Brantley Gilbert to the list of country music’s elite who have given their time to entertain our troops.

Gilbert said the experience altered his life tremendously and encouraged any and all artists with the opportunity to participate in USO performances to do so. “If anybody gets a chance to do that, take off.”

During his interview with Big Machine Records, Gilbert described how meeting the troops, playing for the men and women, and hearing their stories forever changed his life.

In addition to performing concerts that lasted an hour and a half each, Gilbert and his band remained available at the post concert meet and greets until every single member of the base had the opportunity to come through.

The experience went on to inspire Gilbert to do more for American soldiers and their families. In the months that followed his USO tour, Gilbert became involved with the Wounded Warrior Project.

His kindness and support did not go unnoticed by Staff Sergeant Justin Patterson who went so far as to give Gilbert his own Purple Heart medal in appreciation of his efforts. (Gilbert, humbled in return, gave Patterson his tickets to the CMT Music awards as a way to say thanks.)

Most recently, Gilbert volunteered his time to perform at a benefit show to support the families of the Marines killed in the attack in Chattanooga, TN.
