(Radio.com) Brantley Gilbert credits Keith Urban with helping him get sober and helping him stay alive. Speaking with The Tennessean Gilbert recounts how Urban's counsel helped him turn his life around.

'I told him, I don't think I can do my job. I don't know if I can ever play a song at my shows without being (messed) up," said Gilbert. "Or writing, I was worried my songs wouldn't be the same, that I wouldn't be on everyone else's level."

Urban, a former addict, apparently confessed to similar fears but told Gilbert that he was a better performer, writer, and person without drugs and alcohol. "If it weren't for him, I don't know if I'd be sober or be in this business anymore. I'd probably be dead." Read more here.
