Brantley, along with a few other artists, is known for reviving country music, a genre that was on the verge of losing its prominence. He began his career by performing at the local venues, before making it big in the music industry with the help of his debut album, ‘Modern Day Prodigal Son’. His first album was released by ‘Average Joes Entertainment’, an independent record company that mostly releases the albums of independent artists. Later on, ‘Big Machine Records’ helped him by re-releasing his second album, ‘Halfway to Heaven’. When the album was first released, it failed to reach far and wide, but the re-release helped Brantley to achieve fame as the album became available to a host of listeners. This turned out to be the breakthrough that Brantley was looking for. A couple of songs from the album topped the Hot Country Songs Chart, soon after it was re-released. In 2013, he was honored with the ACM New Male Artist Award for the album. Brantley subsequently released two more country albums that gained critical and commercial success. Two of his albums, ‘Halfway to Heaven’ and ‘Just as I Am’, are certified platinum records.
