‘Brett Eldredge,’ the third album by Illinois country artist Brett Eldredge, is our pick for the album U Should Buy on Friday, August 4, 2017.
July 2017 is officially behind us, and you know what that means? It’s a new month with new music. August begins rather quietly though – no offense to the artists dropping new albums. The biggest release of the bunch comes from country artist Brett Eldredge. While Eldredge has done well for himself, his third solo album isn’t considered a blockbuster release. Nonetheless, he leads the charge for this low-key August 4, 2017 music release date. In other words, Brett Eldredge is our pick for the album U Should Buy this week.
Brett Eldredge, Brett Eldredge
Country music singer Brett Eldredge returns with his third studio album, Brett Eldredge. The self-titled effort serves as the follow-up to his 2015 album, Illinois. Comprised of 12 songs, singles “The Long Way,” and “Somethin’ I’m Good At” arrived ahead of the album. Unlike Illinois, there are no guest features on Brett Eldredge.
Preview: “Somethin’ I’m Good At”
Eldredge gets it done on four-star promo single “Somethin’ I’m Good At.” It’s energetic and sounds fun from the jump. Add to that energy the exuberance of Brett Eldredge, and early on, “Somethin’ I’m Good At” seems destined to be a hit. He incorporates the art of self-deprecation, which is always a selling point. Maybe that’s unfortunate in some cases, but he treats his weaknesses in tongue-n-cheek fashion, which only amplifies the charm. The chorus, in particular, is top-notch – infectious to the nth degree. All in all, “Somethin’ I’m Good At” is a winner, no questions asked. Brett Eldredge showcases his great voice and personality.
