Top 5 Brett Eldredge Songs
Since Brett Eldredge's debut studio album, Bring You Back, was released in 2013, the singer has been able to celebrate a solid string of successes: five No. 1 singles, three songs certified platinum and nearly 20 nominations for different honors, ranging from the ACM Awards to Teen Choice Awards.
Eldredge has also become known as a songwriter and singer who can craft both a foot-tapping party anthem and a stripped-down love song with similar ease. Songs that exemplify both edges of Eldredge's spectrum appear on The Boot's list of the Top 5 Brett Eldredge songs.
“Beat of the Music” is an upbeat, mid-tempo love song that can transport listeners back to the summer months (or make them glad to be in the middle of it) in one listen. The third single from Eldredge’s debut studio album, “Beat of the Music” earned Eldredge CMT Music Awards nominations for Performance of the Year and Breakthrough Video of the Year. In addition to hitting No. 1 on the charts, “Beat of the Music” was also No. 1 on Billboard’s year-end Country Airplay chart in 2014.
If you could distill sunshine into a song, “Somethin’ I’m Good At” just might be that song. The handclap-driven tune is cheerfully self-deprecating, with declarations such as “I can’t change the world / No, I can’t change a flat” occasionally interrupted by genuine laughter from Eldredge. The premise of the song -- which peaked just outside the Top 20 on the Billboard charts -- is that the thing the narrator is good at is making someone smile ... and if this song is any indication, Eldredge is right.
Eldredge gave “Drunk on Your Love” a pretty epic reveal: It debuted in the wedding video of Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard. The song, an impossibly cheerful and catchy celebration of early love, did pretty well outside of Hubbard's nuptials, too: It reached No. 2 on the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts and has been certified platinum -- and has been unofficially certified by The Boot as “impossible to get out of your head.”
“Mean to Me” is one of those songs tailor-made for a wedding: “If mine could be the name that changes yours / The wine in your glass / The swing in your porch / The dollar in your pocket, and the peaceful in your sleep / Then I’d be what you mean to me,” Eldredge sings.
With a chorus about “dancin’ slow” in a “crowded room,” it’s easy to imagine this song as the soundtrack to a couple’s first dance. Eldredge’s starry-eyed ballad hit No. 1 on the Country Airplay chart and is certified gold.
“Don’t Ya” was only the second single from Eldredge, but in it, he sounds like a veteran in total control of what he’s doing. With a catchy chorus preceded by an even catchier bridge, Eldredge uses the song to flex two of his greatest assets: his charm and his voice. The certified-platinum single turned a sparks-flying meet-cute into a chart-topping hit.
