Originally from Paris, Illinois, Brett Eldredge hit the country music scene without looking back after making his Grand Ole Opry debut in 2010. Starting as a songwriter in Nashville helped him get his name out there and ultimately secure his own record deal.
After co-writing "I Think I've Had Enough" for Gary Allan, Eldredge released his debut single "Raymond" with the help of Atlantic Records. With four studio albums under his belt and three No. 1 hits on the US Country Airplay charts, the singer-songwriter and CMA award winner isn't stopping anytime soon. It wasn't an easy road to success for the singer though. Eldredge is incredibly open about how he wouldn't be where he is today if his parents hadn't made many sacrifices to get him to shows, even if there were five people in the crowd.
