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 this little body," says Eldredge. "I was hooked on the story that somebody would be telling through their voice." It’s been a long time coming, but with current single "Don’t Ya" climbing into the Top 10 and debut album Bring You Back slated to be released August 6 on Atlantic Records, Eldredge is finally getting the chance to share a story of his own... and these days, he’s writing that story himself. Hit singles, a debut album on the way ’ the little kid with the big voice is well on his way to the backyard dream coming true. "How do I pour my whole heart and soul into my music to make sure that people see that it’s the real deal?" he asks. "I started singing for a reason. I came here because I wanted to hit that big stage. It’s taken every song I’ve written up to this point to get to where I am. Bring You Back is me, and it’s the truth. I can’t wait for people to hear it."
