Though Brantley Gilbert doesn’t drink anymore, he knew just what to do when tossed a can of Bud Light during a recent concert.
Instead of drinking it, he looked at it for a second, said “Yeah, f*ck that,” and then spiked it into the ground, causing it to explode and the crowd to cheer wildly. Watch that here:
“Even though Brantley Gilbert doesn’t drink anymore his reaction to someone throwing him a Bud light was Awesome🙌🏼👏👏👏😂❤️. #GoWokeGoBroke”

For reference, the Bud Light was tossed on the stage because it was the time in the concert when Gilbert’s drummer normally shotguns a beer. Hence the Bud Light being tossed up, which Gilbert was not a fan of.
Gilbert is far from the only country star to take an anti-Bud Light stance, much to the delight of country fans across the country. For example, Travis Tritt decided to remove Bud Light from his concerts, as we also reported on The American Tribune, saying:
Country music star Travis Tritt took to Twitter to announce that he will now be excluding all Anheuser-Busch products for his upcoming events in response to the uber-woke Bud Light campaign that features Dylan Mulvaney. Mulvaney is a transgender individual who in a single year of celebrating “womanhood” has gone from an obscure nobody to a millionaire. “female” social media influencer.
“I will be deleting all Anheuser-Busch products from my tour hospitality rider. I know many other artists who are doing the same,” Tritt posted after the Bud Light-Dylan Mulvaney partnership was announced. Tritt then went on to post. graphic showing all of Anheuser Busch’s products so that people know what to boycott. Here that is:

Similarly, John Rich told Tucker that Bud Light used to be Redneck Riviera’s most popular beer, but that patrons just stopped ordering it after the Mulvaney announcement. In his words: “I think the customers decide. Customers are king. Our number one selling beer up until a few days ago was, guess what? Bud Light. That was the number one beer. We got cases and cases and cases of it sitting back there.”
Continuing, Rich said, “But in the past several days, you’re hard-pressed to find anyone ordering one. So as a business owner, I go, ‘Hey, if you aren’t ordering it, we got to put something else in here.’ At the end of the day, that’s capitalism. Right, Tucker? That’s how it works.”
He then added, “It’s their right to market it however they want,. They’re making a bet [that] this is going to sell more product… And what’s happening, Tucker, is people that have been loyal to brands for decades and decades are finding it hard to stay loyal to them, so they start hunting down other brands that they can go and support. And [there are] tons of up-and-coming American brands out there that people are flooding to, kind of like mine.”
