We are back with our “Video Picks of the Week.”
Brantley Gilbert is one of my new favorites. He’s the perfect mix of country and rock, and I love the tone of his voice and overall vibe.
Brantley was signed to Valory Music Group in 2011, and you definitely know him for his songwriting skills as well. Most notably, he has written songs for Jason Aldean and Colt Ford. He was a co-writer on “Dirt Road Anthem” and “My Kinda Party,” both of which were eventual mega-hits for Aldean.
This week’s pick is Brantley’s music video for his single, “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.” The track is the second single off of his album “Halfway To Heaven.” The album is available on iTunes!

This week’s live video is Casey James performing his song, “Drive,” at 102.5 Bull Lounge last year. The track is from his upcoming self-titled album due out March 20th. Casey recently released a music video for the acoustic version of this song so make sure you check that one out as well.
When I listen to Casey, one word comes to mind… talent. I am a huge fan of Casey’s voice and you cannot deny his amazing guitar skills. I think he is going to be a force to be reckoned with in the country music scene, and we will be following his career for a long time. I can’t wait to hear his album!
This week’s cover video is Dia Frampton performing Zac Brown Band‘s, “Colder Weather. ” As you know, Dia represented Team Blake and finished second on Season One of The Voice. Dia has one of the most unique voices I have ever heard. We love her here at Keepin It Country, and we are so happy for her success.
Dia’s album, Red, is available everywhere now so make sure you check it out if you have not grabbed a copy already. Dia is currently on tour with her mentor and one of our very favorite country stars, Blake Shelton. Visit http://www.blakeshelton.com/shows for tour dates and information.
