Sorry, ladies. Brantley Gilbert is now officially off the market.
Gilbert married Amber Cochran at his Georgia home on June 28. Cochran is a schoolteacher from Gilbert’s hometown who he says stole his heart over a decade ago.
“I met her 10 years ago. I met her in church, and long story short, we were on and off for five years, mostly on,” Gilbert said in an interview with E! News. “Losing her, it was a straight downhill jolt at first…She’s the one that got away for five years, and they always say if you love something you’ve got to let it go, and if it’s meant to be, it’ll come back.”
It’s obvious Cochran left a big impression on the singer, who popped the question last October. “Amber is an amazing person and has inspired a lot of my songs, from ‘More Than Miles’ to ‘You Don’t Know Her Like I Do’ for the last 10 years,” Gilbert told People. “I’m a blessed man to have her back in my life and can’t wait to make her my wife.”
Gilbert was previously engaged to fellow country singer Jana Kramer, but the couple ended their relationship in 2013. After the couple enjoy their honeymoon, Gilbert will be back on the road with Kenny Chesney’s Big Revival Tour through September. A full list of tour dates has been posted at his official website.
