Country Music Artist Details How Conversations Can Lead To New Songs

Brantley Gilbert is always looking to write new songs. That’s just the nature of the creative beast and as a singer, you want to have new songs ready to go. But he has found one way, or one path, that can provide an insight into those new songs. They can come from something like conversations while also teasing that something new is on the way.

“Some of the best songs I’ve ever written have just come out of a conversation,” Gilbert said in an interview with People. And that’s exactly what happened. I was just talking about how I have trouble telling my little girl, ‘No.’ I let her get away with murder!” That’s his daughter Braylen that Gilbert is talking about.

“As a songwriter, it’s hard to write a song about your kids, because none of the words are good enough. You could always find a way to say it better.” His song “How To Talk To Girls” is about how Gilbert is still learning to be a better man. But Gilbert is learning more about marriage and relationships every single day.
