He was originally signed to Colt Ford's label, Average Joe's Entertainment, where he released Modern Day Prodigal Son, and Halfway to Heaven.

These albums have produced a combined six chart entries on the Hot Country Songs charts, of which three have gone to number 1. Gilbert also wrote Jason Aldean's singles "My Kinda Party" and "Dirt Road Anthem". 

Brantley Gilbert originally moved to Nashville as a songwriter, signed to Warner Chappell Publishing. He continued performing at local venues. In 2009, Gilbert released his debut album, Modern Day Prodigal Son, under independent label Average Joes Entertainment.Gilbert followed his debut with the second project, Halfway to Heaven, on March 16, 2010. 

In February 2011, Gilbert signed with Valory Music Co., a division of Big Machine Records, who re-released Halfway to Heaven with new recordings and bonus tracks. The album was produced by Dann Huff. Its first two singles, "Country Must Be Country Wide" and "You Don't Know Her Like I Do", both went to number 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart. After it, "Kick It in the Sticks" peaked at number 34, and "More Than Miles" at number 7 on Country Airplay. He won the ACM New Male Artist award in 2013. 

Gilbert's second Valory album, Just as I Am, was released on May 19, 2014. Its lead single is "Bottoms Up", which has also reached number 1. The second single is "Small Town Throwdown", which features guest vocals from labelmates Thomas Rhett and Justin Moore. The third single is "One Hell of an Amen". 

In addition to his original work, Gilbert has written songs that Colt Ford and Jason Aldean have recorded. The songs "Dirt Road Anthem" (co-written and originally recorded by himself and Colt Ford) and "My Kinda Party", were released on Aldean's 2010 album My Kinda Party.
