You won't ever see Brantley Gilbertin public without his signature baseball cap. Even those closest to Brantley don't often see him without the headgear.
He says, "I've been wearing a hat so long, I actually leave it on sometimes in the shower on accident." Brantley even sleeps in a baseball cap sometimes.
"It's just like a piece of my body almost. It's weird," he explains
Brantley has about 30 caps in his collection, and his favorites have BHM and Boss written on the back because he says with a laugh, "I am the boss." There are pictures of Brantley as a 12-year-old wearing a cowboy hat out there, but he hopes those don't hit the press anytime soon.
Brantley says, "This baseball cap's been going pretty good for me for awhile."
Brantley continues his opening spot on Toby Keith's tour this Friday with shows in Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina this weekend.
