Flashback: 6 years ago this month…the CMT Music Awards at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville

Brantley Gilbert, introduced by pro wrestling hall of famer, Stone Cold Steve Austin, takes the stage to perform his #1 hit, “Bottom’s Up.” And it was… in the air!

Brantley brought down the house with his rowdy rendition of his signature hit. The crowd went wild when he did a backflip off the drum riser during the instrumental break in the song. Hmmm, wonder if Steve Austin had any influence or gave some pointers to Brantley that night.

Take a look (you can fast forward to about 2:00 in to get to the flip)
