Brantley Gilbert‘s been married to the love of his life, Amber, for a little over a year and a half now, even featuring her in the video for his latest single, “The Weekend,” but there was a time when he honestly thought he’d never find “the one.”
“For a long time in my life, I was dead set on not getting married and not going through all that. I was just single for life,” he reveals in a statement from his label.
His breakup from Jana Kramer was especially devastating for the singer-songwriter. “She’s an awesome person. But when something like that doesn’t work out, that was close enough and I was done,” he confesses.
“And on June 16th, when Amber came back in the picture, when she walked around the corner, I mean, it wasn’t a choice! There wasn’t anything I could do. I was like, well, all that ‘single for life’ just went out the window.”
