Brantley Gilbert Gets Therapy

Brantley Gilbert Gets Therapy


Brantley Gilbert admits he went through some intense emotions during the making of his latest album, "Just As I Am," but that no topics were off limits in his songwriting. He considers writing songs a form of therapy, and holds nothing back.

“To me song writing is the purest form of expression outside of prayer," he says. "But it’s also therapy. I feel like if you write a song the right way you relive it every time you sing it, but you also learn from it. [It] helps you cope with certain situations and look at ‘em from the outside in. So I don’t think there have ever been songs that are too personal. I try my best to bare my sleeve ... on all my records. What you see is what you get, and kind of be an open book.”

"Just As I Am" is Brantley's third studio album. It has been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), for selling more than 500,000 units.
