Who wrote the Jason Aldean smash hits 'My Kinda Party' and 'Dirt Road Anthem'?

The answer is Brantley Gilbert.

And the proud Georgia native who has built a huge following based from his home state --as evidenced by his 430,000+ facebook fans up from 242,000 at the time this conversation was recorded just four months ago in May.  And yesterday morning Big D and Bubba announced Gilbert will be headlining the 'Taste Of Country Christmas Tour' which makes it's way to Tyler and Electric Cowboy Saturday November 12.  When Gilbert and I talked on Radio Texas Live he opened up about everything from Jason Aldean to his big car accident. 

Here Brantley talks about the car accident that probably should have taken in his life but instead ended up giving him new life and inspiration.

A sensitive topic for many die hard Gilbert fans has always been Jason Aldean and the number of hit Aldean songs Gilbert has written, in this next segment Gilbert sets the record straight about his Georgia "boy" and multi-platinum selling recording artist.

His new album 'Halfway To Heaven (Deluxe Edition)' is out now download it here.
