Brett Eldredge admits being one of People Country’s sexiest men is a pretty good gig– until you’re in the airport early in the morning.
“I literally was sitting on an airplane, and a girl was reading a People Country or one of the magazines with the hottest guys or whatever,” he recalls. “It was like six in the morning, and I’m on the airplane and I slept, like, one hour, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God. She’s, like, turning to the page that I’m on.’ I’m like, ‘Please don’t look over here! Please don’t look over here!’ I’ve got bags under my eyes.”
Having just logged two number one hits that were both love songs, Brett admits the “sexiest” label still hasn’t helped him shake his bachelor status.
“I am single. I’m always looking,” he confesses. “ I’m not afraid to look and find that right one. I am a very focused guy with my music right now. That right one comes along and hits me over the head and says, ‘You’d be dumb not to follow this,’ then I’ll do it. But right now, it’s just like I’m living by the song, and maybe I’ll find that one in the process.”
Brett’s current single, “Mean to Me,” is climbing the charts now.
