My Faith In You

Album: Just as I Am (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Brantley Gilbert broke off his engagement to singer and actress Jana Kramer in August 2013 while he was struggling to maintain his two years of sobriety. The Country star sings about his struggles on this Just As I Am cut, from which he came out stronger and more optimistic. "There is a song called 'My Faith in You' that is really my main spiritual song on the record about my faith and people close to me and the ones who really stood behind me," Gilbert told CMT. "They're my brothers, and if I ever need anything in my life, they are there."

    "I was fortunate enough to have a situation in my life where everything did shake out and hit rock bottom, and I did see who was standing there and really saw who had my back for real," he continued. "Had to be the hardest thing and probably the best thing I ever did. No joke."
