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.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
