Powerhouse vocalist Brett Eldredge joined “Today” co-hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb this morning to celebrate Kotb’s birthday. On his “Today” debut appearance Eldredge performed his current hit, “Don’t Ya,” from his just-released album, Bring You Back. The single has climbed to No. 3 making him the only artist so far this year to reach the Top 5 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart for the first time.
The past few months have seen the “Don’t Ya” singer opening for Taylor Swift on 19 dates of “The RED Tour” and appearing on the LP Field and Riverfront stages during CMA Fest 2013 in Nashville. This summer Eldredge can be seen throughout the country at various fairs and festivals in addition to select tour dates with Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert.
Chicago Sun Times recently described the Illinois native’s impressive vocals as “exud[ing] a magical combination of innocence and heartiness” and Billboard noted “there is a touch of gravel in Eldredge’s voice which he presents with a commanding, soulful delivery.” In addition, Warner Music Nashville President & CEO John Esposito raves, “Brett is a force of nature that one is lucky enough to bump into once in a lifetime. His powerful yet intimate voice stopped me in my tracks.”
