It may be too early for most to start thinking about Christmas, but not for Brett Eldredge. The country star announced today that he is set to release a Christmas album this fall.

“I’ve been inspired for this record from a very young age,” said Eldredge. “I dreamt of the day I could record all these classic songs that I’ve loved since I was a little kid. I recorded those classics in New York City and tried to give a tip of the hat to the ones that came before me – Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Ray Charles – by adding that swing and that soul to the best of my ability. When it came to actually recording, I wanted to live in the experience. We hung Christmas lights in the studio in the middle of May and had musicians from the best bands in the world all in the same room – from horns to strings. Everyone was so inspired to make this classic record. I think it really shows in the songs and I can’t wait for people to hear that magic we found.”

Recorded at the legendary Avatar Studios in New York, the timeless album will include several classics and well-known Christmas songs, as well as an original track entitled, “Glow.”

Brett is currently at country radio with his latest single, “Wanna Be That Song,” and on the road with Keith Urban on Urban’s ripCord tour.
