Brett Eldredge just celebrated his first #1 song with "Don't Ya." And, his debut album, "Bring You Back" on Warner Music Nashville, is in stores now!
Get To Know Brett:
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 albumBring 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.
To hear Brett sing, it comes as some surprise to learn that the Eldredge family wasn’t exactly musical. Although distant cousin Terry is a member of seminal bluegrass outfit the Grascals, Brett’s talent was more the exception than the rule. So instead of learning from his parents (“You don’t want to hear them sing,” he laughs), the little kid with the big voice grew up listening to records from Ray Charles, Ronnie Dunn, and, of course, Frank Sinatra. His folks bought him a guitar and a small sound system when he was a teen, and while Eldredge didn’t immediately take to the instrument – “I never could sit still long enough to learn it,” he cracks – the sound system and its wireless microphone became a cornerstone of his early musical training. “I used to be nervous, but once I got that thing I would play a Sinatra track and try to hit it exactly right,” Eldredge remembers. “I lived on a lake, and I would sing in my backyard. The speakers would blare out towards the water, and my neighbors would all be listening.”
