Brett Eldredge dropped his latest album in June. The seventh studio effort from the Illinois native is Songs About You. The title track was the first single, and it’s already enjoyed success on country radio. Now, there’s a video to complement it.
It’s one of those country songs about a broken heart. It’s about trying to escape the memory of someone that you loved and being reminded of that person at every turn. And the music video does a great job of telling that story. See the full video below.
Songs About You his record stores and streamers on June 17, 2022. The titular track hit country radio in February. Brett Eldredge co-wrote every track on the record. Heather Morgan collaborated with him on eight of the 12. There’s also a co-write with Natalie Hemby on there, “Get Out of My House.”
Morgan has written songs with and for a bunch of folks. Her music was on the show Nashville, and her songs have also been recorded by folks like Keith Urban, Sara Evans, and Eli Young Band. Hemby has also written songs for Eli Young Band, as well as Lee Ann Womack, Miranda Lambert, Jon Pardi, Kacey Musgraves and Little Big Town. They’re two of the best in the business. Hemby is also a member of The Highwomen, alongside Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris and Amanda Shires.
Eldredge’s admiration of classic vocalists inspired the new record. It’s something he wanted to emphasize on the recording. “Songs About You” peaked at number 38 earlier this year. Eldredge had a huge run of number ones in the mid ’10s with “Don’t Ya,” “Beat of the Music,” “Mean to Me” and “Lose My Mind.”
