Brett Eldredge (self-titled)
Coming off a string of six consecutive number one hits from his first two albums, "("Bring You Back" and "Illinois"), Brett Eldredge had a choice; take deliberate aim at the chart summit or follow his heart.

Chris Stapleton's unlikely mainstream country popularity has graduated the scruffy singer/songwriter from large theaters to the hockey stadiums, and one had to wonder how much this audience growth would affect his performing style. If tonight is any indicator, though, it hasn't changed much.
