Brett Eldredge may have grown up singing jazzy vocal numbers by the likes of Frank Sinatra and other iconic crooners, but it’s country where he’s found his home.

Eldredge released his debut album Bring You Back in 2013, introducing listeners to his soulful baritone voice and earning three big hits. The singles ‘Don’t Ya’, ‘Mean to Me’, and ‘Beat of the Music’ topped the Country Airplay charts. 

Those early commercial successes translated into a CMA Award for New Artist of the Year in 2014.

His sophomore album, named after his home state of Illinois, came in 2015, and Eldredge followed it with the Christmas album Glow one year later.

But Eldredge hasn’t left his past behind entirely. He regularly covers Sinatra and even told Rolling Stone that he’d love to record a covers album one day.

Eldredge’s fifth studio album, Sunday Drive, was released in 2020.
