Brett Eldredge Says He’s Determined to “Make Something Special” for Next Album

Brett Eldredge Says He’s Determined to “Make Something Special” for Next Album

If history is any indication, Brett Eldredge will be releasing a new album later this year.

Brett’s debut album, Bring You Back, was released in August 2013, while his sophomore set, Illinois, dropped in September 2015. Brett’s most recent offering—his self-titled album—was released in August 2017.

Each project has been released roughly two years apart, which suggests Brett is due to release a new album this fall. While we can’t “guarantee” it, we like the odds.

Brett’s current single, “Love Someone”—the third from his self-titled album—is No. 21 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart after 36 weeks, so it wouldn’t surprise us if his next single was the lead from his upcoming album. As Brett told Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, you can expect something “special” from the next album.

“I’m not one of those guys that can write 13 songs and cut 12,” says Brett. “You know, I gotta go and I’ve gotta write through things, and find that certain thing to build a record around, and then you kind of find the thing and then you go after it, so that’s what I’m going for. I’m deep in the studio, you know, writing, and I’m going to make something special.”

Brett has a number of upcoming tour dates this spring and summer, including five dates in Australia with Jon Pardi.

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.”
