Bradley Gaskin (born in Gadsden, Alabama) is an American country music singer-songwriter. He signed with Columbia Nashville in 2011 and has released his debut single, "Mr. Bartender" after being discovered through a talent contest sponsored by John Rich. At the time, Gaskin had been working for his father hanging sheetrock. C.M. Wilcox of The 9513 gave the song a "thumbs up", calling it "a straightforward barroom lament" and comparing Gaskin's vocals to those of Travis Tritt.[1] The song entered the Hot Country Songs charts at number 51 on the chart dated for the week ending April 2, 2011.[2] After a corporate restructuring, Gaskin moved to Columbia Records to release his second single, "Diamonds Make Babies". On June 4, 2012, it was announced that Sony Nashville was retiring the BNA label and moving its roster to Columbia Nashville. Gaskin was dropped from the label following this move. Gaskin spent much of 2012 touring with Big & Rich, typically performing "Mr. Bartender" as well as a cover of Keith Whitley's "Don't Close Your Eyes". Gaskin had plans for releasing a version of the Keith Whitley song prior to the problems that arose with his label. Gaskin wrote a Tate Stevens "Power of a Love Song" in 2013.
