Time to hand out the cigars! Congratulations are in order for Brantley Gilbert and his wife Amber on the birth of their son Barrett Hardy-Clay Gilbert, on Saturday.
Brantley says, “Honestly, I’m just speechless. Watching the delivery, I don’t even know what to say. Amber and I are just so thankful and blessed to have this beautiful little boy.”
Brantley notes that the name Barrett is one they’ve had “for a very long long time,” adding, “We knew we wanted to have a ‘B’ name, and [Barrett’s] something we’ve always had and loved.” The baby’s middle name is after family, with Hardy coming from Amber’s father side, while Clay was the middle name of Brantely’s PaPaw.

Brantley is also celebrating his sobriety. He's been sober for six years and he says it took “losing almost everything” to get him to clean up his act. He adds that doing so has even had a big influence on the people around him, with a lot of people in his crew following in his footseps. He notes, “it’s a completely different world out there on the road now.”
