Brett Ryan Eldredge was born in 1986 in Paris, which was not in the French capital, but a city in Illinois. He is a famous country singer, author of his own songs and a producer at the same time. Eldredge’s cousin was a member of a bluegrass band.
His brightest impression about country happened when he was present at a Station Inn concert. His cousin was at the stage at that time, and suddenly he stopped for a while and then asked Brett to come to the stage and to choose any of the band’s songs to play together with them. He chose their Amarillo by the morning which they sang together. Later, Brett Eldredge confessed that that was a magical moment, and the first sounds of the intro even gave his goosebumps.
He was only a sophomore at that time and needed to focus on his education. But the next school year he spent in Tennessee where he managed to combine his studies with writing verses and meeting other writers. This resulted in a good deal with a record label soon. The secret of his success was simple: touching and serious lyrics and smoky voice made it well. Besides, the plots of songs are really deep. For example, in his Raymond, an old man suffering from Alzheimer’s in an elderly home is thinking that a male nurse is his son who died during the war. The idea is even more appealing and heart touching when you got to know that Eldredge’s grandmother has also faced the difficulties of the disease. Brett Eldridge also says that at every concert when he sings that song, people seem to be really touched as many of them do know someone with the same problem and know how much those people struggle.
Brett’s popularity is due to his emotional writing and deep smoky baritone. But sometimes, he creates his texts with the help of his co-writer Pat. Brett loves Pat McLaughlin because they both believe in country music. Their goal is to participate in Opry show one day.
Brett’s childhood went in listening to classic pop with his grandfather. He loved Frank Sinatra and other famous singers. And having once sung a classic song at a talent show, he loved public performances and wanted to make them his profession.
His early years he spent in Paris, an agricultural city where his family lived at a big lake. He used to swim a lot and do water sports and he still remains loyal to active sports in between composing new songs and touring the country with his concerts.
The singer is on tour now. The Brett Eldridge tour dates are from the 4 of August till the 28 of October. Brett Eldredge events will happen in US mostly, but there is one Brett Eldredge concert 2017 coming in Oro-Medonte, Canada, Brett Eldredge tickets are available online.
