Known for his timeless vocals and sophisticated style, Brett Eldredge has had a lot of success already in his young Nashville career – riding a wave of consecutive hit songs, nominations for several different honors, sold-out venues, and adoring, loyal fans. More so, the romantic nature of Brett Eldredge songs has turned him into the genre’s most eligible bachelor.
In many ways, the rising country star’s success comes because his songs lend an ear to a time when country music spoke of the ordeals and success stories listeners had in their lives. You can see for yourself below.
1. “Don’t Ya”
Brett Eldredge kicked off a streak of No. 1 hits with “Don’t Ya,” and it’s the best way possible. With his remarkable vocals blended with a bass-thumping, toe-tapping hook and rippling verses, you’ll definitely find yourself singing along to this song.
The heartfelt ballad tells the tale of a nursing home’s maintenance worker and his connection with one of the patients, Catherine Davis, who thinks that he is her son Raymond – who died in the Vietnam War in 1971.
It was inspired by Eldredge’s grandmother, who also had Alzheimer’s disease for several years.
3. “Good Day”
“Good Day” came during a reckoning of self-awareness for the singer. Eldredge realized his tendency to focus on the negative aspects of life, so he wrote the song as an encouragement to look on the good in whatever situation you’re in and start every day with positive manifestation.
4. “Mean to Me”
The simply sweet country love song finds the country crooner telling a woman how much she means to him. “I wanted to write a song telling someone, ‘If I could mean half as much as these things, half as much as you mean to me, then that would be amazing,'” Eldredge said about the song.
5. “Wanna Be That Song”
When asked by a reporter what he wanted to do with his music or his message would be, he thought of writing the song that would poignantly capture who he wanted to be as an artist – and it was “Wanna Be That Song” for Eldredge. It turned out to be another No. 1 hit on Billboard Country Airplay while peaking at No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
6. “Lose My Mind”
After three consecutive No.1 singles from his debut album, Eldredge proved he has plenty to offer when he debuted the first single off his second studio album, Illinois. The sultry ballad finds the singer singing about a woman who is so irresistible that she drives him crazy.
7. “Drunk on Your Love”
Though Eldredge’s “Drunk on Your Love” features modern sound, it still used fiddle and banjo – and of course, the traditional country themes of love and drinking.
8. “Somethin’ I’m Good At”
Eldredge co-wrote this goofy uptempo jam, which he described as a song “about embracing your flaws and your quirks.” It finds him confessing that he may not be great at plenty of things, but he can make that special woman in his life smile.
This bittersweet song finds Eldredge looking back on a relationship, reminiscing vivid scenes of the great times, at the same time, pondering why the relationship did not work out. But despite the end of a romance, he wishes his then-lover well with her life.
10. “Sunday Drive”
The title track of Eldredge’s cinematic 2020 album, the touching ballad is an old photograph coming to life in the form of tear-jerking lyrics. It sings about how a simple Sunday drive with loved ones could be powerful enough to shape one’s perspective.
11. “The Long Way”
Cut from Eldredge’s self-titled third studio album, “The Long Way” is a “powerful look at love and that search for something deeper.”
12. “Love Someone”
This simple romantic song fills the air with its playful guitar-slinging as the country singer croons his hope of meeting that special someone and to sweep her off her feet like he wants to do. After all, “it sure feels good to love someone.”
In 2016, Eldredge released his first Christmas album as a tribute to the music he grew up listening to. The title track “Glow” is the only original song in his holiday project.
14. “Beat of the Music”
Fans got to see a more romantic side of Eldredge as he tells the story of meeting someone special and in an intriguing way possible – at the beach. According to the singer, the song was inspired by a time he spent in the Bahamas with his brother, where they rented a small boat to go island hopping and came upon a stunning girl.
15. “Time Well Spent”
This beach-friendly track will definitely have you wishing you were on vacation. But rather than focusing on a romantic story, he pays tribute to those fun drunken nights. After all, it’s okay to waste time for some good buzz.
