Brantley Gilbert scores his sixth career #1 at country radio this week with “One Hell Of An Amen” (The Valory Music Co.). Gilbert penned the emboldened tune with Mike Dekle and Brian Davis, paying tribute to both a close friend and a fallen soldier whose separate legacies highlight those who “fight the good fight.” The track appears on Just As I Am, which currently holds a Top 10 spot on the year-to-date Top Country Albums chart.
“It’s an honor and a privilege to give ‘One Hell Of An Amen’ to two great men who faced their battles and said ‘Bring It On.’ With a song as personal as this one, I hope it can offer some comfort to anyone struggling to find hope and bravery,” Gilbert shared when he heard the news. “Thank you to Country radio and the BG Nation for this very special #1.”
The longtime military supporter, who helped launch Wounded Warrior Project’s Rolling Odyssey motorcycle therapy program alongside ten veterans, recently announced a benefit concert for the families of the Chattanooga fallen soldiers. Additional details for the #NoogaStrong show will be available at BrantleyGilbert.com in the coming weeks.
The rough-and-tumble hitmaker has racked up impressive accolades for Just As I Am with the 2X Platinum-certified #1 “Bottoms Up” and Gold-certified “Small Town Throwdown” ft. Justin Moore and Thomas Rhett. The project earned Favorite Country Album at the American Music Awards and spurred his win for the first-ever Renegade Award at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, which recognizes an artist who breaks boundaries while remaining true to him/herself.
Gilbert is currently on the road with Kenny Chesney’s The Big Revival Tour.
