Posted on Sep 10th by Team WMN in Brett Eldredge,
Hot on the heels of his debut album launch, a media blitz including appearances on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “Live with Kelly & Michael” and “Today,” and his first No. 1 single with “Don’t Ya,” Brett Eldredge is celebrating another career milestone with his first CMA Awards’ nomination for “New Artist of the Year.” “I just woke up to a ton of texts that said ‘Congrats!’ I thought that they were telling me how awesome I slept,” said Eldredge on receiving the news. “Turns out I was nominated for ‘New Artist of the Year.’ What!? Wow! Thank you CMA!”
The powerhouse vocalist, who was recently recognized in Billboard as “one of the format’s biggest breakouts,” continues the momentum with his next single, “Beat of the Music,” going for adds at radio on September 30. He’ll celebrate another first on October 3 when he launches his first headlining tour, the “Bring You Back” Fall 2013 Tour, in the Midwest including a sold-out homecoming show at Joe’s Bar in Chicago.

The past few months have seen the “Don’t Ya” singer opening for Taylor Swift on “The RED Tour” and for Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert on the “Locked & Reloaded Tour.” After wrapping up his first headlining tour this fall, Eldredge can be seen on the final leg of Keith Urban’s “Light The Fuse Tour 2014” in January. Chicago Sun Times recently described the Illinois native’s impressive vocals as “exud[ing] a magical combination of innocence and heartiness” and Billboard noted “there is a touch of gravel in Eldredge’s voice which he presents with a commanding, soulful delivery.” In addition, Warner Music Nashville President & CEO John Esposito raves, “Brett is a force of nature that one is lucky enough to bump into once in a lifetime. His powerful yet intimate voice stopped me in my tracks.”
