Brantley Gilbert is one of country’s hottest new acts right now, and he’s pulled it off without making the move to Nashville. Though most up-and-coming country stars find it helpful to be in the center of the action, Brantley prefers staying back home in Georgia.

“I’ve been asked a million times to move to Nashville, but I just can’t seem to do it,” Brantley tells Parade.com. “This is where my roots are and this is home. I’m sticking true to my roots.”

Even if Brantley moved to Nashville, he still wouldn’t spend much time there. He continues his run of shows opening for Eric Church Friday night in Louisiana.
