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.

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
