Atlantic Records’ powerhouse vocalist Brett Eldredge will release his eagerly-awaited debut album August 6.

Atlantic Records recording artist Brett Eldredge will be the featured artist on WMN’s new monthly interactive live concert stream, “Live from Music Square,” via StageIt tonight. During the free session he will perform his current Top 30 hit single, “Don’t Ya,” in addition to other new tracks from his debut album due out later this year.
Atlantic Records’ powerful new vocalist Brett Eldredge was joined by Warner Music Nashville’s John Esposito (President & CEO), Chris Stacey (Sr. VP, Promotion), Scott Hendricks (Sr. VP A&R) and Rob Baker (RLB Artist Management, LLC) on April 10 in Miami. Eldredge will be in Orlando tonight and tomorrow as part of his 19 dates on Taylor Swift’s “The RED Tour.”
Warner Music Nashville artists and friends celebrated after an exciting Academy of Country Music Awards show that included two world premieres from Blake Shelton and Hunter Hayes as well as stellar performances from Sheryl Crow, Jana Kramer and Ashley Monroe.
CMT recently premiered the official music video for Brett Eldredge's latest single "Don't Ya."
"I always wanted to write a song about how girls are very good at playing tricks on our minds," says Brett. "I'm pretty sure we probably play tricks on their minds too, but they're way better at it. It's just the little things, just the brush of their hair, that always gets us."

Dates for Brett's upcoming tour with Taylor Swift were announced earlier today. Brett took a few minutes to talk with Taste of Country about landing the opening act gig.
"I’ve played in front of some big audiences, but that’s a whole ‘nother level,” said Brett. “What Taylor does, her show is a spectacle unlike any other artist in music. Just to be able to have a little part of that, a little tiny piece of that, to be able to get in front of her fans that are so passionate … I’m so, so lucky to be able to do that. It’s gonna be awesome. I’m so, so excited.”
Warner Music Nashville artists set to perform and present at tonight's 46th Annual CMA Awards in Nashville, TN.
Both Blake Shelton and Hunter Hayes are performing during the awards ceremony. Blake will join the Willie Nelson Tribute, while Hunter will play his recent #1 hit single "Wanted." Jana Kramer will join Jake Owen to present the award for Duo of the Year.
