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.”

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
