Brett Eldredge Delivers the Album He’s Waited His Whole Life to Make This Fall

ABC/Image Group LAThis holiday season, you’ll be able to hear the album Brett Eldredge has waited his whole life to make, as he delivers his first Christmas collection.

“I’ve been inspired for this record from a very young age,” he confesses. “I dreamt of the day I could record all these classic songs that I’ve loved since I was a little kid.”

Brett traveled to New York City’s Avatar Studios back in May to work on the big band album heavily influenced by his heroes Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bing Crosby and Ray Charles. In addition to the familiar standards, the collection will also include an original tune titled “Glow.”

“I… tried to give a tip of the hat to the ones that came before me… by adding that swing and that soul to the best of my ability…” Brett says. “We hung Christmas lights in the studio… and had musicians from the best bands in the world all in the same room -- from horns to strings…  I think it really shows in the songs and I can’t wait for people to hear that magic we found.”

While we don’t know what the album will be called or its exact release date, it’s expected to be out in the fall.
