Though Thomas Rhett and Brantley Gilbert are “Live In Overdrive” tour mates, they don’t share the same motorcycle skills. Brantley brings his Harley on the road with him, and Thomas tells Y108’s Jimmy and Monty how he got a little too curious one evening.
“I can ride a dirt bike”, admits Thomas, “but like I’m not to the point where I can jump on Brantley’s Harley and take it for a cruise.”
“The other night, I got on his Harley, and I thought he’d put the kickstand up…So, I’m kinda holdin’ his bike up…y’know, tryin to get a picture taken to send to my mom or somethin’ (laughs)…and all of a sudden these people (are) walkin by, they ask me for a picture, and I’m like, ‘Yeah’, so I start to get up and put the thing on the kickstand…and the kickstand is NOT UP… and I start to slowly fall over on his motorcycle. And thank God that there was people around me to help me stay up, so that was a pretty embarrassing moment.”
So, if Thomas was pinned under the bike, which one would Brantley save? There’s no question in Thomas Rhett’s mind: “Oh, the bike, in a heartbeat!”
