Watch Brantley Gilbert’s New Apple Music Commercial

Brantley Gilbert stars in a new ad for Apple Music. The commercial premiered on Sunday (July 23), during NASCAR’s Brantley Gilbert Big Machine Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but readers can press play above to watch it.

Gilbert’s Apple Music ad, directed by Anthony Mandler, features the country star riding his motorcycle down country roads; the clip was shot outside of Leiper’s Fork, Tenn. His soundtrack, provided of course by the Apple Music app, includes Gilbert’s own current single, “The Ones That Like Me,” as well as Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s “Sweet Home Alabama,” Steppenwolf’s “Born to Be Wild” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Backseat Freestyle.”

“I’ve never been one for commercials. But when we started talking to the folks at Apple, they were saying, ‘We want to capture you, the way you live and the values you hold. We want people to see your world, show them what you hear and respond to. If they see you, it says everything,'” Gilbert explains. “We had so much fun shooting with Anthony and his crew, it really wasn’t like work. Getting to ride on the open road, see some of those people, places and highways, it’s everything I love to do. To me, when you’re being real, that’s the best way to chase the music. When you’re doing that, you’re hitting right up in the place where the songs come from.”

This summer, Gilbert out on the road for his 2017 The Devil Don’t Sleep Tour, which also features Tyler Farr and Luke Combs. He and his wife Amber will welcome their first child, a boy, in November.
