Brantley Gilbert is passionate about serving our nation's veterans and thanking them for all they sacrifice, and this Christmas was the perfect opportunity to make the season even brighter for some lucky vets.

Gilbert teamed up with Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and ATV company Polaris to make some special memories this year with two Marines and an Army vet and their families, inviting them to hang out with him at an off-road park in Louisiana to play around on the ATVs.

The families were surprised to learn they weren’t simply filming a short promo video with Gilbert — they were going to spend the whole day with him, be treated to a private acoustic concert from the artist, and go home with their own Polaris RZR.

“The vets give so much for all of us. To be able to team with a company like Polaris and have fun all day on their RZRs, then send the vets home with one? To me, that’s how we pass it on and make the holidays special for those unseen heroes,” Gilbert says of the day.

In the sweet video above, Gilbert has a blast with the families mudding through the park together in the four-person ATVs. But when the families learn they’re getting their own to take home, the tears start flowing. Try to keep it together as you watch this touching video giving back to the people who have given so much to us.

Gilbert is releasing his new record The Devil Don’t Sleep on Jan. 27, the deluxe edition of which will include 26 tracks. He’s also gearing up to go on a tour by the same name, kicking off Feb. 2 and bringing along Tucker Beathard and Luke Combs for the run.
