It wasn’t long ago that singer and songwriter Bradley Gaskin of Duck Springs, AL, was hanging drywall. He would spend his lunch break writing songs on pieces of sheetrock paper. At the urging of his wife, Bradley uploaded some of his songs to MySpace, where they were heard by country singer and Celebrity Apprentice contestant John Rich’s development company. Bradley was invited to perform at the “Get Rich Talent Search” and he won the competition! John later brought him to Sony’s Columbia Nashville label, where he signed a record deal last February.
“Mr. Bartender,” his self-penned debut single, sounds like a timeless country classic. In the song, Bradley asks the bartender for a shot to relieve his heartache. With a strong baritone, this singer to watch crafts his own brand of new classic country, distilled through his honky-tonk heroes like Keith Whitley, Merle Haggard and George Jones, to name a few.
Bradley’s video for “Mr. Bartender” just made its debut on VEVO and we have it here for you to watch now. Keep your eye out for the “celebrity” bartender at the end!
