I can feel it comin in the air tonight, oh Lord (drum solo)
The flip phone challenge was a game changer for me! Sure, I couldn’t take Ubers or injure myself riding those Bird scooters, but I got to see life through my eyes and not through a screen! It’s definitely a commitment, but one worth making. Think you could do it?
MEANING AND PURPOSE.... Beyond music and making people smile, I’ve dug deep to try to find something extra special that motivates me to get up in the morning...I remember the first time I went to visit the kids at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital...I saw some sad things but at the same time, extremely happy and hopeful things...these kids don’t deserve to be sick and I knew from that day forward I wanted to make it my passion to help out in every way I can...I’m so proud to be standing alongside my wonderful family as the “Brett Eldredge Family Foundation," growing another year of donations and handing this life sized, Happy Gilmore looking check to the wonderful doctors and medical staff to help do the incredible work they do...until the last kid is healthy and free, we are here for you ❤️
On this birthday day, I am making a damn choice to make this year something special...this isn’t some New Years resolution BS, this is an affirmation to myself to laugh a lot more, worry a lot less, and love with my whole damn heart...this year on this earth, I shall be more free than ever...are you into to making that choice too?! Then it’s all our birthdays! Cheers and thanks for the love 😊
I’m so proud to make music with these guys, damn they’re good.
I used to daydream during geography class whenever we would learn about different countries and far away lands...I loved the wonder of it all...it was all worlds away from my little hometown of Paris, Illinois...It seemed impossible to ever make it there...but somehow, here we are...thousands of miles from home, on tour in Europe with thousands of amazing fans singing the words to these songs that were always in the heart of that goof ball kid with a big imagination... thanks for giving me a voice and a chance to do this...I can’t wait to come back and play for you all again...soooooooon!
oh hey, yes, I’ve been gone a bit but damnit if I’m not HERE more than I’ve ever been...Getting away from the noise and into feeling life and the sunsets and the rain and everything...damn its a powerful thing...I love music more than ever and hell I even love myself (sometimes ya forget to do that🙄)...oh and I love you all and the love that you show me! I am creating music on such a deeper level than ever and now getting back to playing live, it’s all starting to make sense...I’m not saying it’s all sunshine and rainbows, life is life, but it can and will be beautiful! I can’t wait to see you all...this whole flip phone thing has been amazing, you really realize how much time ya spend staring at a screen and not in the moment 😬 I got a Polaroid camera and am mailing pictures to my team of this journey...so if you were wondering, I’m alive and well, and I can’t wait for what’s to come...see ya soon
To start 2019, I am going to go back in time to 2002. That was the year I got my first color flip phone with a lil megapixel camera on it...I felt like a bad ass...I would carry it everywhere I went but never look at it to check the never ending “Breaking News” or constantly compare my life to someone else’s...I wouldn’t sit at the dinner table and be halfway paying attention to my buddies convo’s because I was watching someone’s story about how good, or bad they were at “Flossing” or how quick someone could chug a bottle of vodka and do a triple backflip into a pool...I was there, in the moment, with my friends, with life...Don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of amazing things about a smart phone...but I gotta take a moment to experiment and see what it’s like to be here, RIGHT NOW, lost in the music and not in a screen...if ya need me, I’ll be on the T9 text machine...here goes the #FlipPhoneChallnege
Happy new year!
Smothered in giant puppy love
Sitting under this tree with my family close by, I can’t help but think of how magical this holiday season has been...thank you for taking me on a Christmas ride of a life time and letting me be a part of your Christmas memories...I love you...MERRY CHRISTMAS, sleep in heavenly peace.
My mom found my Christmas list from when I was a lil kid....I still want all of these things 😂
