Thursday, October 28, 2010
– Brett Eldredge will make his Grand Ole Opry debut this Friday, Oct. 29. Eldredge will be introduced to the Opry stage by Bill Anderson.
"I have one goal - to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry," said Eldredge. "To me, that is the highest honor you can be awarded as a country music singer. So, given the opportunity to perform for the first time ever on the Grand Ole Opry stage is truly a dream come true. And then to have Bill introduce me...words can't express how cool that is for me. Bill and I have written together and I feel blessed that my friend and Opry legend, Bill Anderson will be there to share this moment...it's just an amazing feeling. I am sure I will be nervous and freaking out beforehand, but I am going to make sure I take it all in."
Eldredge joins the Oak Ridge Boys, Rodney Atkins and Joe Diffie in the line-up for Friday's show.
Eldredge's debut single is Raymond, currently reigns in this week at 44 on the Billboard charts, 4 weeks since its release to radio. The song, penned by Eldredge and Brad Crisler, follows the story of a relationship between a young man and an elderly patient at a nursing home who has Alzheimer's Disease. The woman mistakes the man as her son, affectionately calling him Raymond. Eldredge wrote the song after learning about the progressing decline of his grandmother's battle with Alzheimer's.
