Brett Eldredge is giving fans a special holiday gift and bringing in a festive cheer this year with Mr. Christmas.
According to the singer-songwriter, the brand-new Christmas album is packed with so much fun, joy and magic. The cover itself will even quickly make you feel the holiday spirit, as Mr. Christmas stands in the window front, watching over people moving past like how Rockefeller Plaza’s old shops in New York City do.
“We captured that nostalgic, classic feel that Christmas brings and mixed it with the soulful side of my music influences,” Eldredge said, who also noted that it was something he’s been planning out for quite some time.
The project includes two originals that we’ll hear for the very first time, including the title track, which he wrote with frequent collaborator Ross Copperman. The song showcased Eldredge’s vocals backed by strings and a cheerful big band sound.
Indeed, Brett Eldredge has cemented himself as an essential part of the festive season ever since the release of his Christmas album five years ago, called Glow – which ranked No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums. Also, one of the most popular Brett Eldredge songs was his original duet with Kelly Clarkson, “Under the Mistletoe,” which was included as a deluxe track on Clarkson’s 2020 Christmas album, When Christmas Comes Around…
But Eldredge is even more remembered by his single live Christmas show in Nashville that eventually became a yearly Glow Live holiday tour.
And to live it up with the release of Mr. Christmas, the country singer is bringing back his Glow Live Tour in 2021. From November 13 to December 18, Eldredge will be playing nine concerts throughout the country’s major cities, with two shows slated in Nashville, Boston, Chicago, and New York City.
Eldredge hopes that attending Glow Live with family and friends becomes a tradition that people would look forward to each year and for the many years to come.
