Country up-and-comer Brett Eldredge has always been attracted to singers, a fact that should come as no surprise to anyone who’s heard the Illinois native’s soulful, distinctive baritone. “I always gravitated towards big voices, because as a kid I had this big voice coming out of this little body,” says Eldredge. “I was hooked on the story that somebody would be telling through their voice.” It’s been a long time coming, but with current single “Don’t Ya” climbing into the Top 10 and debut album Bring You Back slated to be released August 6 on Atlantic Records, Eldredge is finally getting the chance to share a story of his own... and these days, he’s writing that story himself.
He has since had the honor of writing with some of Nashville’s greats, including the legendary “Whispering” Bill Anderson. Eldredge calls him “an incredible mentor,” someone who taught him that the trick to being a great songwriter is to “just keep writing... you never know when you’re going to land on that awesome song that speaks to people.”
Opening for some of the biggest names in country music has taught him plenty, too. After spots in front of Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Trace Adkins and Willie Nelson, this year found Eldredge facing the biggest (and possibly most enthusiastic) crowds of his lifetime thus far, opening 19 dates for Taylor Swift on “The RED Tour.” “I’ve played plenty of gigs where there are only 30 people in the crowd, or less,” he says. “Fast forward to, you know, a stadium, with 50,000 people...”
The last 30 seconds of Brett Eldredge's new 'Beat of the Music' video finds the singer locking lips with a beautiful blonde. The scenes took multiple takes, and he tells Taste of Country Nights host Sam Alex he wasn't complaining.
