Brantley Gilbert certainly has an emotional connection to his latest single, “One Hell of an Amen,” but it has taken on a deeper meaning in recent weeks. The singer was on his honeymoon with his new bride, Amber, when he learned that his 82-year-old grandfather had died. The man had suffered with COPD and emphysema for 20 years.
Brantley told Country Countdown USA, “The song took on a whole new meaning for me. It totally fits him . . . he was a fighter.”
Brantley is playin stadium dates on Kenny Chesney‘s The Big Revival tour, with an upcoming show on Saturday, August 1st in Kansas City, MO.
Brantley also played the Chumash Grandstand arena at the Mid-State Fair last night! Did you see him?
Miranda Lambert emerged publicly on Wednesday night in Nashville for the first time since her high-profile split from Blake Shelton. She showed up to support her good friend, singler Ashley Monroe, who was debuting music from her new album, The Blade, at a club in East Nashville. Miranda even got up on stage and joined Ashley on the song “Heart Like Mine,” which appeared on Miranda’s 2011 Revolution album and was co-written by Ashley.
Miranda put on a happy face, smiling and laughing the entire time she was on stage. Before the song started, Ashley pulled Miranda in for a sweet hug and a kiss on the head.
Vince Gill, who co-produced Ashley’s album, and Little Big Town‘s Phillip Sweet were also in attendance.
Miranda is set to perform a small, sold-out Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Unplugged show at Nashville bar 3rd & Lindsley on Tuesday.
Get the tissues out! Adriana Lopez, who is a teacher in New York, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and the school’s amazing choir gave her a fantastic performance of Martina McBride’s “I’m Gonna Love You Through It.”
