Brantley Gilbert is always on the go taking his music to fans across the country, and he prefers to do that traveling on his tour bus as opposed to flying to his shows.

Explaining why he hates flying the friendly skies, Brantley tells GAC , "I hate customs. I hate going through security. I hate layovers. I hate cancelled flights.”

Though Brantley has had a lot of success so far, he isn't to the point where he can fly privately either.

"I’m kinda on a commercial budget,” Brantley says. “I sit in an economy seat. So I would definitely rather be on my bus. I’ve really gotten comfortable with it. It is a home away from home. I can honestly say I sleep just as good there if not better than at home.”

Brantley will be rolling along all summer opening for Tim McGraw on the Two Lanes of Freedom tour starting next month.
