Before Saturday night’s (5/5) sold-out concert at the Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville, Brantley Gilbert was surprised with a gold plaque to commemorate sales of over 500,000 copies of Halfway to Heaven. His Big Machine Label Group family, and booking agency CAA hosted a pre-show celebration for the accolade.

“We couldn’t be more proud of Brantley and are not only celebrating a gold record but that Halfway to Heaven is now officially halfway to platinum,” said Big Machine Label Group President & CEO Scott Borchetta.

The album features the gold-certified, No. 1 hit, “Country Must Be Country Wide,” as well as his current Top 15 single, “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.”

Chosen for an opening slot on Eric Church’s Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour, Gilbert played a rockin’ 45-minute set that had the crowd on their feet with their fists in the air.
