Brantley Gilbert recently broke up with his fiancée Jana Kramer, but you won't find a lot of songs about what he calls the "disengagement" on his upcoming album. Brantley wrote a lot of love songs during his relationship with Jana, and they're still included on the album.
He tells CMT.com, "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."
Brantley expects his new album to come out in early 2014, and he's thinking of titling it Just As I Am. The lead single, "Bottoms Up," is due out next month.
After the breakup, Brantley moved back home to Georgia and has been flying back to Nashville to work on his album. He's also enjoying some free time that just opened up in his schedule.
"I had a wedding scheduled, and my schedule just opened up," Brantley says with a smile.
