Brantley Gilbert's wife Amber knows what to expect when he takes the stage. Usually, she takes most antics in stride and like any couple, they discuss boundaries.
"We have boundaries. We have to discuss certain things sometimes. I mean, like in any relationship we have to figure out where each other is comfortable and if there is something that I'm saying on stage or doing onstage that makes her feel disrespected that's something as a husband I need to consider changing or make her understand why I say this or why do this. She does an awesome job with it."
Brantley recently shared a story that didn't sit all that well with Amber. Brantley had reached down in the crowd to grab some of his fans hands and to give some people high fives, and when he did, a pair of women's underwear got caught on one of his bracelets, so when he lifted his hands up in the air, it looked like he was proudly holding up a pair of women's underwear. When he realized what was happening he freaked out, and so did Amber. Brantley says, "She looked up at my head of security, PJ, who's been with me more than 10 years now, and he's a gentle giant but he's hilarious. He said, 'I probably shouldn't tell you this but I got to tell you what she did.'"
He said, 'You lifted up and had that on your arm,' she looked up at him and said, 'P.J…'
And he said, 'Yes ma'am?'
And she said, 'I'm going to need you to take me to the pit.'
He said, 'For what?'
She said, 'Because I'm going to find that … '
And he said,' No no no no no!'"
The whole story makes "The Ones That Like Me" singer laugh now, but he knows at the time Amber was not happy that some woman had apparently taken her underwear off and tried to hand them to her husband. Brantley says of Amber, "She's tiny but she's tough."
