Brantley Gilbert married the woman of his dreams at his home in Georgia after living together for more than a decade. The singer tied the knot with Amber Cochran on Sunday, according to E Online.
Gilbert, 30, and Cochran, a school teacher, have been dating for more than ten years. Brantley felt that it was time to settle down with someone before it was too late.
Gilbert was previously engaged to country singer and actress Jana Kramer, but they called it quits in 2013. The newlyweds dated on and off for years before finally deciding to walk down the isle.
Brantley Gilbert is married to someone he wants to spend the rest of this life with. The singer broke the news of their engagement last year on the Bobby Bones radio show.
“I met this little girl 10 years ago. You’ll hear her in most of my songs,” he said, adding, “She was the one who got away for about five years … I can honestly say I’ve never been happier.”
Now that two are married, expect more new ink from the singer. He says that he and his bride are planning to have something inscribed on their ring fingers.
Gilbert said “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.” Brantley also said he’s a “blessed man to have her back in my life and can’t wait to make her my wife.”
The two got hitched at an intimate ceremony surrounded by close family and friends. But Amber did inspire him to write some songs, only a few people knew.
Gilbert gives Cochran credit for two songs, including “More Than Miles” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.” Brantley has been in love for a long time.
He has often referred to her as “the one that got away.” The duo got engaged back in October, but “attempted” to keep the wedding date a secret.
“I will be pulling up to the wedding, like, sliding in my driveway sideways from the road. But after that we get to go away for seven or eight days, so I’m really excited about that,” he said, hinting at the wedding date
Brantley Gilbert married at the right time because now the couple can plan a family. That’s if they decide to have children.
