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.
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…” He pauses, still in disbelief. “There’s a whole new energy out there I can’t even explain. I’ve always been confident in my voice, but I think becoming a stronger songwriter has also made me more confident in who I am as an artist,” he says, trying to pinpoint what’s changed since his days playing unattended open mic nights. “In the beginning I was just singing. As a songwriter, I’ve learned to reach down and not be afraid. When you’re the most real to people, that’s when you really connect.” (It likely doesn’t hurt that Eldredge was recently named one of People magazine’s Hottest Men of Country.)
