Brantley Gilbert will be marking the arrival of his new album in a special way. 

The country star will head out on a six-day motorcycle trek during the first week Just As I Am is in stores.  Gilbert will launch the ride on May 21st in Athens, Georgia, and wrap up the journey at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia on May 26th, which is Memorial Day.
