Brantley Gilbert is really thankful this Thanksgiving. Oh, and he’s a mac and cheese guy.

It’s been a pretty spectacular year for the “Bottoms Up” singer. He wrapped up a super-successful tour, for example, and recently welcomed a first son, Barrett Hardy. Taking time to reflect is now near the top of his list. “Thanksgiving [is] my wife’s favorite time of the year and one of my favorite times a year,” he says through his record label. “You know, especially this year I have so much to be thankful for and it’s been a blessing and God’s done some amazing things in our lives.”

Brantley is enjoying some other fun stuff, too. It’s hunting season, of course.

Thanksgiving means lots of good food, too. Brantley’s favorite? “If there’s gotta be something on the table for me, I think everybody knows and if you don’t know, I’m a mac and cheese guy.”

Things get back to “work normal” for Brantley in February when he kicks off his Ones That Don’t Like Me Tour. See a list of dates and buy tickets here.
