WATCH: Brantley Gilbert Fulfills 11-Year-Old Girl’s ‘Make-A-Wish’ In Emotion-Filled New Video

Brantley Gilbert granted the wish of an 11-year-old fan named Alirix who recently underwent a heart transplant as the left side of her heart was too big, and her heart values were leaking blood into her lungs.

“My name is Alirix, and my dream has always been to meet you,” the young fan said in a video shared to TikTok in early January 2022. “You helped me through my heart transplant and I listened to you all the way through and I hope I can meet you. When I was in the hospital they granted me a make-a-wish and my wish is to meet you.”

With the help of millions of fans on TikTok, who viewed and shared the initial clip, making it go viral, the video was seen by Gilbert and the Georgia native responded in less than 24-hours with a duet on TikTok.

“Hey Alirix, it’s Brantley Gilbert here, I got your TikTok. I got to say that I’m so humbled that you want to meet me,” Gilbert said in a clip he filmed in his dawghouse. “My wife makes the exact opposite wish a lot. So, here’s the deal, it’s going to be awhile until we post some shows. So in the meantime, hopefully we can work something out on top of a show, but we’re going to reach out to you and let you pick any show anywhere, anytime and you come see us darling. See you soon.”

After a few weeks went by, the country superstar and “How To Talk To Girls” singer welcomed the young fan into his dawghouse to join him during his tour rehearsals and Gilbert documented Alirix’s experience on video.

“The hard days make ones like this that much sweeter… So glad I got to meet sweet Alirix and her family the other day at rehearsals… Thank you #bgnation and Make-A-Wish America for helping make it happen,” Gilbert shared on Facebook alongside a clip of the special day.

The video shows fans Gilbert meeting the 11-year-old girl as well as takes them on a journey through their day together at rehearsals.

In addition to sharing a lengthy YouTube clip of Gilbert fulfilling the young fan’s wish of meeting him, Gilbert also shared a TikTok clip with Alirix.

“You might’ve seen a couple of weeks back, a sweet girl named Alirix hit us up on TikTok and she made it to rehearsal. She’s actually trying to take Ben’s job,” Gilbert said, before the 11-year-old girl chimed in, “No, I don’t even know how to play the drums, so he’s good.”

“I’m glad you made it,” Gilbert told Alirix, before she graciously showcased her appreciation for inviting her, “thank you for letting me come.”

Alirix’s Dad Lonnie thanked BG Nation in the clip for helping make the young fan’s wish of meeting Gilbert a reality.

“Thank y’all for making it happen, much love,” Gilbert said concluding the video.


Hope to see you again soon Alirix #makeawish #humbled #brantleygilbert
