Brantley Gilbert is not one to turn down a challenge — even if it’s one that requires jumping into the very cold Cumberland River in March. After being ribbed by two friends, Gilbert had 24 hours to do his very own Polar Challenge and post it on YouTube. And he did it. In the video, Gilbert says he thought he dodged the polar bullet, but he was wrong.
“I accept your challenge,” the tattooed country singer says. “Even though I just got this and I’m in Nashville, Tennessee finishing up this record and gettin’ ready for a tour … Apparently I only have so long to do it.”
“We’re right outside of downtown Nashville. I’m about to jump in the Cumberland River which is still freezing a– cold,” Gilbert adds. “Here we go.”
