Brantley Gilbert Willing To Give Acting ‘A Little Shot’
Brantley Gilbert…singer, songwriter…actor?
Following a quick cameo on ABC’s hit show “Nashville” last season, the “More Than Miles” singer says he’s open to taking on more roles. While he has a great mentor in his fiancé Jana Kramer, Brantley says he’s hesitant about playing a role other than himself.
“As far as acting goes, my fiance’s an actress. We got ready to shoot the scene on ‘Nashville’ and of course she had some pointers on that one, but I was playing myself so that’s something I’m pretty good at,” Gilbert explains. “I’m not too good at being fake or being somebody else. But if I read a script in the future that I feel like I could have a little fun with or that reflects me well, it may be one of those things that I try out.”
Brantley Gilbert fans shouldn’t worry though. The Georgia native assures that music will always be his focus. “Of course music’s my number one priority. That’s always gonna come first. If we got time for the acting thing, maybe we’ll give it a little shot, a little try.”
He’s not the only Country singer to dip their toes into acting. Tour mate Tim McGraw has starred in numerous films, including “The Blind Side” and “Country Strong.” Trace Adkins and Toby Keith are also among those who have taken on television and movie roles.
