Illinois native, Brett Eldredge, began singing in front of crowds at the tender age of 15. He now has two #1 singles under his belt and is the reigning CMA 'New Artist of the Year'. Eldredge tried to learn guitar when he was younger but admits he couldn't sit still long enough to learn. However, after college he decided it would be beneficial to learn; so he took it up once again, this time sitting still long enough to become proficient.

He moved to Nashville after college and began writing with people like the legendary Bill Anderson. He joined in writing circles and has even written songs for Trace Adkins, Gary Allan and the TV show Nashville.

He's doing pretty well for himself too these days. He was just named CMA's 'New Artist of the Year'. He had two #1 hits back to back for 'Don't Ya' and 'Beat of the Music' off of his 2013 debut album Bring You Back. He currently is in the Top 25 of Billboard with the third single 'Mean to Me' from the album.

He toured as opening act for Taylor Swift's 'Red' tour last year and is joining both Keith Urban and Billy Currington this year.
