Lindsay Ell Exposes Brantley Gilbert

Lindsay Ell has really gotten to know Brantley Gilbert since recording their hit single, "What Happens In A Small Town," and she has pretty well blown his cover. As Lindsay tells us exclusively, Brantley may look tough, what with all his tattoos and things, but he's quite the opposite. "I always say I'm ruining Brantley's image because he is just this tough, strong dude and I here come along and in every interview I'm like, 'Brantley is the nicest human on the planet. He's so sweet. He's so generous, so down to earth and so it's been wonderful working with him,' and I'm sorry, Brantley, if I'm ruining your image but it's worth it. The world deserves to know the truth."

"What Happens In A Small Town" is on Brantley's upcoming studio album. The video is nominated for Collaborative Video of the Year at tomorrow night's (Wednesday, June 5th) CMT Music Awards, airing live from Nashville at 8 p.m. ET.

Lindsay will join Brantley on tour later this summer and fall.
