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.

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.”
