Despite the rain in Nashville on Tuesday (July 30), Brett Eldredge celebrated the forthcoming Aug. 6 release of his debut album, Bring You Back, at Nashville’s Marathon Village. The evening featured Hattie B’s Hot Chicken, beverages and brownie desserts courtesy of Eldredge’s mother. The soulful singer delivered the Atlantic Records album in its entirety for an audience including friends, family and industry executives.

Throughout the evening, Eldredge’s powerhouse performances included “Bring You Back,” which he delivered with songwriters Ross Copperman and Heather Morgan, and the current single, “Don’t Ya,” alongside co-writers Chris DeStefano and Ashley Gorley. To commemorate the Top 5 single’s success, Warner executives presented the newcomer his first RIAA Gold single plaque, in addition to recognitions for the co-writers.

Additional performances included “Tell Me Where To Park” with one of the song’s co-writers Jon Nite. Barry Dean and Luke Laird helped perform their co-write “Gotta Get There,” while Tom Douglas performed on the emotional ballad, “One Mississippi,” which he co-wrote. Culminating the evening was a tribute to the late Lindsay Walleman of Warner Music Nashville with a rendition of the Ross Copperman and Natalie Hemby co-written song, “Go On Without Me.”

“I wish I could personally deliver the album to each and every one of my fans,” said Eldredge. “To celebrate my debut album and my first Gold single with everyone that has stood by me on this ride, was an amazing night and one that I will never forget.”

The entertainer’s party will continue next week as he headlines New York City’s Highline Ballroom on Aug. 6, the same day Bring You Back hits shelves. He will make his late night TV debut the next evening on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, followed by appearances on Live with Kelly & Michael and Today on Aug. 9.

Eldredge has opened 19 shows on Taylor Swift’s RED Tour. This summer he can be seen throughout the country at fairs and festivals, in addition to select tour dates with Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert.
