Info for Sunday Drive
US country superstar Brett Eldredge returns with his brand new album Sunday Drive. The new album is Produced by Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk, the Grammy-winning duo behind Kacey Musgrave’s Golden Hour.
Sunday Drive pairs the hit-making songwriter with past collaborators like Ross Copperman, with whom he has penned multiple chart-topping, Platinum-certified singles, on songs such as Crowd My Mind. Gabrielle - the first single to be released from his new album, is about looking back on a past love, wondering where that person is and what it could have been.
“I think you have to give yourself permission to do anything in life, to be brave a little bit,” Eldredge said. “I got to a certain point where I was doing something in repetition and it was all really good… but I felt like I wasn’t giving enough of myself. It took a lot of self-awareness to finally realize that if I do really have a lot more in me, then I’ve got to step up and I’ve got to take that step off the edge. And I think enough time of doing it the same way made me realize it’s time to do it big.”
It was only when he found the way to blend his acclaimed voice and strong midwestern values with a deepened sense of self and naturally matured sound did Eldredge feel ready to share his next chapter of music with the world. Sunday Drive pairs the hit-making songwriter with past collaborators like Ross Copperman, with whom he has penned multiple chart-topping, Platinum-certified singles, on songs such as “Crowd My Mind.” The jazz-tinted ballad is laced with nostalgia as Eldredge and Copperman’s lyrics describe the feeling of missing a loved one. The album’s other instant download, “Where The Heart Is” (Eldredge, Jessie Jo Dillon, Tyler Johnson), offers a different take on reflection in an acoustic, mid-tempo monologue.
Brett Eldredge, vocals, guitar
Country up-and-comer Brett Eldredge has always been attracted to singers, a fact that should come as no surprise to anyone who’s heard the Illinois native’s soulful, distinctive baritone. “I always gravitated towards big voices, because as a kid I had this big voice coming out of me,” says Eldredge. “I was hooked on the story that somebody would be telling through their voice.” With his debut album slated to be released in 2013 on Atlantic Records and new single “Don’t Ya” at radio now, Eldredge is finally getting the chance to share a story of his own.
Although distant cousin Terry Eldredge is a member of seminal bluegrass outfit the Grascals, closer to home, Brett’s musical talent was the exception. The little kid with the big voice grew up listening to records from Ray Charles, Ronnie Dunn, and, of course, the greatest of them all: Frank Sinatra. His parents bought a guitar and a small sound system for Eldredge when he was a teen, and while he didn’t immediately take to the instrument – “I never could sit still long enough to learn it,” he admits – the sound system and its wireless microphone became a cornerstone of his early musical training. By age 15, Eldredge was a performer in demand for local functions. “I really grew to love the feel of the crowd,” he says.
Eldredge says there was no question that his passion for performance would carry him to Nashville, but his move to Music City after college made one thing clear: He was going to have to pick up that abandoned guitar. “I saw people on stage playing these songwriter nights, just them and a guitar,” he says. So Eldredge locked himself in a room to practice, and eventually started writing songs of his own. “It took me a while to finally get a hold of the guitar, but once I did I was hooked,” he says. “I think being a student of singers works to my advantage, because it taught me how to phrase things. I had melodies all over the place in my head.”
He has since moved on to writing with some of Nashville’s greats, including the legendary “Whispering” Bill Anderson, who taught him that one of the tricks to being a great songwriter is to “just keep writing,” Eldredge says. Two singles he’s released so far certainly prove his range: His 2010 debut, “Raymond,” was inspired in part by Eldredge’s own grandmother and her struggle with Alzheimer’s. Current single “Don’t Ya” hits the opposite end of the spectrum, an up-tempo flirtation that ponders the mystery of romantic relations, and showcases the sexy baritone in Eldredge’s voice. And during his own high-energy live shows, just like that kid with the wireless mic, Eldredge goes out of his way to connect with every member of the crowd. “That’s the place I feel more alive than anywhere,” he says. “Everything it takes to get to wherever I’m going to play – every airplane and car I ride in – is so worth it once I’m able to get up on that stage. I want everybody in the crowd to feel the energy that I’m feeling from them.”
As he continues to work hard at the craft of songwriting, there’s no question his talent will grow along with his audience. “You can create something from nothing, and that’s the coolest thing in the world to me,” Eldredge says. “This new music is me, and it’s taken every song I’ve written up to this point to get to where I am. I feel better about my music now than I ever have felt, and I can’t wait for people to hear it.”
This album contains no booklet.
