Well, Brantley has moved out of the Nashville home he shared with Jana Kramer, but he’s not quite ready to talk about it. And he probably never will. In a recent interview, Gilbert said anything he has to say about the relationship will be said through his music. He’s getting ready for a new album and says the content will be varied, “The love songs are still on there, I didn’t change anything. It’s kinda like how tattoos are chapters of your life. And all my records are chapters of my life. They all tell stories, and obviously she’s a big part of the story. ‘I’m Gone’ is kind of a breakup song. But there were some goodbye situations in there and some hell-raisin’ situations. There was a lot to write about.” So while he’s working through the breakup, he does have something to look forward to. His sophomore studio “Just As I Am” will be released in early 2014, with his new single “Bottoms Up” impacting radio in October.
And Taylor Swift asked the current Entertainer of the Year to join her at a Nashville show and, to put it lightly, the crowd went nuts! There’s a solid minute of screams after TSwift introduces Luke Bryan before they start in singing “I Don’t Want This Night to End.” Bryan flew across the country, on his only day off, to surprised 14,000 fans at Bridgestone Arena. Based on the crowd reaction, Mission: Accomplished. Taylor seemed pretty stoked too, jumping up and down while escorting Bryan off the stage. Check out a video of the performance...
