Brantley Gilbert: “I Enjoy the Opportunity to Be Judged”

The Devil Don’t Sleep Arrives Friday

Brantley Gilbert feels comfortable driving his motorcycle without wearing a helmet in states with no-helmet laws. But the Jefferson, Georgia, native, joked he might need one if he’s driving in snow.

At the time of our interview, an inch of the white stuff was accumulating on the streets of downtown Nashville, turning Lower Broadway into a winter wonderland.

“I could drive in it, but I wouldn’t want to,” he said. “I don’t do snow well. I used to hate wintertime, but now I don’t mind it as much because it’s hunting season. But this — on a work day — no, sir. I need to be in front of a fireplace with my wife and my dog.”

Gilbert forewent the use of a helmet while performing his own stunts driving an ATV in the music video for “The Weekend,” the lead single from his new album The Devil Don’t Sleep. The deluxe edition offers 26 songs all written or co-written by Gilbert himself, except for a cover of Hank Williams Jr.’s “Outlaw Women,” which was recorded live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado.
