Country star Brantley Gilbert traveled nearly 3,000 miles last week to launch his new studio album Just As I Am.
That is some creative marketing right there, since it combines three things the country singer loves: music, the military and motorcycles.
Officially dubbed "Athens to Arlington," Brantley and some of his closest friends embarked on a six-day motorcycle ride to simultaneously honor local armed forces heroes and entertain thousands of fans. The motorcade of nearly 20 departed Athens, Georgia on May 21, making stops in 11 cities along the way. BG also performed and signed autographs.

The trek included stops at tour partners Harley-Davidson, Best Buy and Walmart's various retail locations. Additionally, Brantley honored scholarship recipients of families of wounded or lost military personnel with help from national charity Folds of Honor.
"From riding motorcycles with my 'brothers' to performing for my fans to honoring those who gave us our freedom, this journey has been unreal," said Brantley. "The BG Nation showed up for each and every event and never disappointed. Thank you to Harley-Davidson and Folds of Honor for joining me on this incredible week!"
