brantley gilbert jana kramer ACM Awards 2013: Brantley Gilbert takes the couch for rival and fiancee Jana KramerWhat’s the secret to competing for a major award with your fiancee?

According to Brantley Gilbert, it’s about who’s willing to give up the bed.

“I’ve been sleeping on the couch,” Gilbert said on the red carpet at Sunday’s (April 7) 48th annual Academy of Country Music Awards. Gilbert’s rivals for best new artist include Jana Kramer, the former “One Tree Hill” co-star he’ll be tying the knot with “soon.”

After a chuckle, he quickly adds, “She’s my best friend.” And presumably, it will stay that way, whether either or neither of them walks away with that prize — but if one of them does win it, it will look good on their newly shared shelf.
