Brantley Gilbert is celebrating the launch of his new album, Just As I Am, with a Harley-Davidson ride from Athens, GA to Arlington, VA. Harley and the military charity Folds of Honor are sponsoring the trek kicking off May 21. Brantley will perform a kick-off concert May 20 at Athens’ Georgia Theater, which is one of the first big venues Brantley played when he was staring his career.
Earlier this month, fans were asked to submit names of their friends and family members who lost their lives in military service. Those names will cover a bus following Brantley on the ride from Athens to Arlington.
More details on the ride will be announced the week of May 12. Just As I Am is due out May 19.
