I didn’t know Brett Eldredge before I heard the song “Raymond.” I love the song. And as you might guess, I’ve been reading a lot about Brett since then. If you missed the article I put up about Brett back then, you can read it here. I’ve also been listening to a lot of his music.
Early in January, Brett had the opportunity of singing the National Anthem at the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears football game. He did a great job, too. Someone once said that you can tell if a person can sing by the way they handle the National Anthem. Based on that comment, I’d say it’s pretty clear that Brett can sing.
“Growing up in a household divided by two teams, the Bears and the Packers, I always wanted to see this fight go down with my very own eyes. There are few places better than Lambeau field to see a game. And it was on my dad’s bucket list to see one at Lambeau. He’d dreamed about it since he was a kid.
To be able to help him check that one off by singing the National Anthem there, was not not only a thrill for me, but was also special for him.
It’s impossible to not feel proud to be from this great country when 80,000 people are singing along with you, to your country’s national anthem. An experience I’ll never forget.
Even though my team didn’t win, I plan on rooting the Bears to the Super Bowl. I also have a great respect for the Packer fans, and that amazing community. They truly love their football, and their team. Best of luck to them as well.”
Of course there’s a YouTube video of Brett singing, and we’ve got that here for you. Listen closely, I believe the videographer was singing along with Brett. It’s not the best video, but it does give you a little glimpse and a big listen, to Brett’s day in at the game.
I will talk to you guys soon. Enjoy your Sunday!
