Brett Eldredge Is Relishing His “Crazy” Christmas Persona With Plans for a Bigger Holiday Tour Next Year

Brett Eldredge is relishing his “crazy” Christmas persona.

Over the weekend, Brett capped his five-date Glow Live Tour with two shows in Nashville on Dec. 14 and 15. The tour was created in conjunction with the October release of the deluxe version of his 2016 holiday album, Glow.

Glow Deluxe features 13 songs from the original album (Target Exclusive) with five new tracks, including “Do You Hear What I Hear,” “Silver Bells,” “Sleigh Ride,” “A Holly Jolly Christmas and “Christmas Time Is Here,” all of which were recorded at Sear Sound in New York City.

“I always just wanted to make a really special record and see whatever [would] happen with it, and then, it all of a sudden went crazy,” says Brett. “People went crazy for it, so I was like, ‘Okay, we’ve got a whole other thing here I can do every Christmas.’ I love Christmas music so much, so I [started] a tour this year for it in Chicago, New York, Ontario and Nashville, so next year, I’ll probably do an even bigger one. It’s just a new thing for me and I love it.”

If you need more of Brett’s Christmas persona, he’s teamed with Amazon to share entries from his gratitude journal each day from Dec. 15–25. Just say, “Hey Alexa, ask Brett Eldredge’s Christmas Countdown what he’s thankful for.”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
