By Don Rhodes - The Augusta Chronicle: Rising country-music singer Brian Davis, now opening for Brantley Gilbert on his Hell On Wheels tour, admits that he and his older brother were hell-on-wheels kind of kids growing up.
“Of course I was, man,” he said in a phone call. “My mama has called me ‘reckless’ all of my life. “It’s funny but just the other day I was saying, ‘Mom, I know you have expected me to grow up at some time, but there still is a touch of that recklessness in me.’ ” Davis said he and Gilbert recently had been going through a morning songwriting session in Nashville, Tenn., and broke for lunch. “On the way back, we went by this construction area that was all muddy from some rain,” Davis said. “We couldn’t resist turning onto the site and driving through that mud before we rode back to the office.”
