Country Music Super Star Brantley Gilbert and Backwoods Life co-host Michael Lee have teamed up for a video project like no one before with the recently released Take It Outside episode #1.

Released in late February, Take It Outside marks new territory for country music and outdoor video as country star Brantley Gilbert gives an inside look at his trips across the country on various hunts. Episode #1 features Brantley hunting in Illinois with Hadley Creek Outfitters in search of his first whitetail buck with a bow. Brantley isn’t new to hunting as he spent most of his life in the outdoors hunting and fishing with family and friends. This is where he met Michael Lee of Backwoods Life. The two formed a friendship and spent many more days in the outdoors together from hunting on Michael’s family farm in Georgia to Brantley’s new farm in Alabama and traveling the country together in-between.

“B (Brantley) called me one day about a year and a half ago with the idea of filming some of our hunts together and with family and friends. He wanted to make this project for his fans to see him off stage doing something that he loves as much as music”, says Michael. “I’m so proud of all B has done in his career and how much he loves hunting. He’s one of the funniest guys to be around and absolutely enjoys every minute of being in the woods.”

Take It Outside has been getting great reviews from viewers and they are already asking when the next episode will be available. If you’d like to check out the first episode of Take It Outside, go to Brantley’s website at then click on Merchandise. You can download the video from there or you can pick up a copy at any of Brantley’s concerts through the country this year.
