Brett Eldredge Shares Christmas Memories and Bakes Cookies With Family

It’s been a country friendly week on the Today Show. Correspondent Jenna Bush Hager went to Nashville to visit Hillary Scott and the Scott Family as part of Jenna’s Country Christmas on Wednesday (Dec. 21) and this morning (Dec. 23) she moseyed on over to Brett Eldredge’s house to talk about his Christmas album, Glow, Christmas memories and, believe it or not, to bake some cookies.

“Since I was a little kid I loved Christmas music,” Brett says of the holiday season. “I remember I’d get up at 6 a.m. every Christmas and I’d crank it up and make all my family wake up—they’d be so mad at me. I was like ‘I love Christmas so much.’ I wanted everybody to feel in the spirit.”

Brett invited Jenna into his kitchen—along with his mom, dad and brother—to bake some chocolate chip cookies and celebrate his family traditions. The cookies even got Brett’s seal of approval. “Oh, they’re good,” he said after tasting the cookies right from the oven. You can find Brett’s recipe for the cookies on the Today Show website.

“My favorite childhood Christmas memory actually still happens to this day,” adds Brett. “It’s a tradition we’ve kept in my family since my first Christmas and that’s we’d go to the Christmas Eve service at the little church in Paris, Illinois. I love where I come from.”

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
