Brett Eldredge notches the last country radio No. 1 of the year with his sixth consecutive chart-topping single “Wanna Be That Song.” Boasting over 40 million streams, “Wanna Be That Song” follows smash hits “Lose My Mind” and “Drunk On Your Love” from his album Illinois.
“Getting to be ‘that song’ for my fans just makes this so much sweeter, better than any number one I’ve ever had,” said Eldredge. “This is the song I’ve wanted to release for a long time so thank you to my team, my fans, country radio – and Merry Christmas!”
The Platinum-selling recording artist is also making waves with his recently released Christmas album Glow. The album has earned widespread praise from outlets including The New York Times, People, Entertainment Weekly, who named it one of the hottest Christmas albums of 2016, and The Tennessean. His duet of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” with 2016 GRAMMY winner for Best New Artist Meghan Trainor tops the Holiday Music Chart for its third week and sits at No. 2 on Adult Contemporary.
Eldredge will continue to celebrate Glow Friday, December 23 on NBC’S TODAY, where he will join the crew in Nashville to talk about his family’s holiday traditions and share his mother’s cookie recipe. He has appeared throughout the season on Good Morning America, LIVE with Kelly, Ellen and the CMA Country Christmas special, which will re-air on Saturday, December 24 at 9:00 p.m. ET / 8:00 p.m. CT on ABC.
