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.”
