Brantley Gilbert is going classical. The singer is set to play Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater on May 4th, where he’ll be joined by conductor Jim Gray and classical orchestration from The Ones That Like Me Orchestra.
“Every song I write is a piece of my life, and over time, I’ve learned a lot of other people’s lives, too,” Brantley says. “That’s special, and this seemed like a very special – and different – way to present these songs.”
He adds, “It’s the last thing people expect, I know. But I think when folks hear how these songs fill out with the classic instruments, they’re going to be surprised at what’s there.”
Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 am local time.
