Watch Brett Eldredge Croon Carols for ‘CMA Country Christmas’ 2016
Nobody -- at least in country music -- does Christmas carols quite like Brett Eldredge. The country star shared his Rat Pack-inspired takes on holiday classics during Monday night's (Nov. 28) CMA Country Christmas TV special.
Eldredge gave one of the night's first performances, singing "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" dressed in a shimmery blue tuxedo jacket; readers can press play below to watch that performance. The singer came out again later in the evening to perform "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," crooning the tune on a stage set to look like a living room decked out for the holidays. Readers can see that performance above.
In late October, Eldredge released his first-ever Christmas album, Glow. The project showcases Eldredge’s powerhouse vocals with Christmas standards such as “White Christmas,” “Winter Wonderland” and “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” (featuring Meghan Trainor), and its style reflects his admiration of some of the all-time greats.
“I recorded those classics in New York City," he explains, "and tried to give a tip of the hat to the ones that came before me — Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Ray Charles — by adding that swing and that soul to the best of my ability."
