Born March 23, 1986, Brett Eldredge grew up listening to Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles and Bobby Darin, but fell in love with country music in his teens. Influenced by George Jones, he moved to Nashville to try his luck as a songwriter, getting his big break when producer Bryan Gallimore signed him to his publishing company. He signed with Atlantic and his first single, 2010’s “Raymond”, a heart-wrenching song about Alzheimer's disease, showcased his sensitivity. His first number 1 hit “Don't Ya” came in 2012, selling over a million copies, and paving the way for his first album, 2013’s Bring You Back, which boasted two more country chart toppers, “Beat of the Music” and “Mean to Me”. His gained exposure opening on tour, polishing a unique singing style marked by a soulful edge and R&B rhythm. 2015’s Illinois contained two more number 1 singles, “Lose My Mind” and “Wanna Be That Song”. He continued to explore his romantic side on his self-titled 2017 album, which was his best charting album to that point, topping the country charts and hitting number 2 on the regular album chart. After a period of reflection, he returned to his roots on 2020’s Sunday Drive, writing songs about his values and capping the album with a song named for the Midwest town he was born in, Paris, Illinois.
