BILLY GILMAN

Saturday, January 21 / 8:00 PM / Anthem

Gilman burst onto the national stage in 2000 releasing the hit single “One Voice.” His debut album was Certified Double Platinum in the United States, and he was included in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the youngest singer to ever reach No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Album charts. He has sold 5 million albums worldwide and garnered awards and nods from the Academy of Country Music, the Country Music Association, Billboard Magazine, and the American Music Association.
Now 25, Gilman is eager to come back and share his new music and his new sound with his fans. “It took me a good while to figure out exactly who I was, musically speaking. As a little kid, sometimes I was just told what to sing. But now I have enjoyed coming into my own and discovering what it really is that I want to sing. And I think that my fans will be pleasantly surprised with what they hear.”
Gilman is also mindful of the need to be patient with his career. “Music is my life, and it is always what I will be doing with my life. But I understand, given my unusual history, that the road back is not going to be short and easy. I will have to earn my way back into this business—one fan at a time. And that’s exactly how it should be.”
“Say You Will” is the first solo single that Gilman has released since 2008. “Having had a lot of success in this business at a really young age was truly a blessing. But it also puts me in a unique and challenging situation as a young adult—trying to re-introduce myself to country fans now that I look and sound a lot different than I did just 7 or 8 years ago.”
In 2012, Gilman made waves by recruiting 18 fellow country superstars to collaborate on a charity single called “The Choice” to benefit the Soles4Souls charity. Proceeds from the song, which included Keith Urban, Alan Jackson, Reba McEntire, Josh Turner, and Rodney Atkins, placed shoes on tens of thousands of barefoot children around the world.

Most recently, Gilman auditioned for the 11th season of “The Voice” and was selected to be a part of Adam Levine’s team. He sang his way through the competition to emerge as the runner-up.
