Brantley Gilbert has revealed that he is engaged. While we don’t know his fiancée’s name, we do know that she is not a new woman in Brantley’s life.  He revealed exclusively to The Bobby Bones Show that he will be marrying the woman he wrote several of his songs about, including “More Than Miles” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.”

 

Brantley said, “Man, I met this little girl ten years ago… It was one of those things where it was on and off for a few years, and mostly on. She was the one who got away for about five years, then kind of came back around, and I can honestly say I’ve never been happier. She’s the one.  I’m a pretty stoked.  I’m pretty excited to say the least.”

 

Brantley revealed that his fiancée is a school teacher at a school just about a mile from his house in Georgia. While she probably doesn’t have to keep working, Brantley says, “She loves to teach.  She’s at least for one more year gonna do that.”

 

Brantley says they are planning to get married at the end of June 2015.

Dustin Lynch Reveals His Grandmother was Part of Reason He Kept Performing After Beer Can Injury

When Dustin Lynch was hit in the face with a full beer can on Friday, he decided to finish his show, with blood still running down his face, before he was taken to the emergency room to get stitches. Dustin didn’t want to leave the stage and cut his show short because the crowd was electric, but he also reveals there was another important reason he didn’t want to quit.  “My grandmother was on-stage actually.  She was sitting in a chair on-stage and we had just finished singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to her – myself and all the fans.  So it was a special night because she was there,” says Dustin.

 

While Dustin says the can hitting his face felt like he had been hit by a baseball, he says, “I didn’t want this one clown to ruin a great night and a great memory for me and all the fans that came out to support us and, of course, my grandmother.  So I decided to continue on with the show without missing a beat – bleeding or not bleeding.”
