Brantley Gilbert Opens Up About Breakup

If you've ever lived in a small town, Brantley Gilbert's latest song will definitely resonate with you.

Earlier this week, the country star, along with Lindsay Ell, teased the upcoming release of his latest single, "What Happens In A Small Town."

The song, which is the first duet Gilbert has done with a female, dives into his breakup with Amber Cochran.

While Brantley and Amber are now happily married, that wasn't always the case.

Rather, as the song plays out, we learn that the two broke up years ago while living in a small town, but the memories remain and haunt Gilbert -- As wherever he goes, he thinks about Amber.

Lindsay was able to channel the pain that Amber was feeling during the breakup, and together, they released one heck of an intense duet.
