Nashville’s Acme Feed & Seed held a rooftop party hosted by BMI and ASCAP on Wednesday (May 20) to celebrate the No. 1 song “Mean To Me” recorded by Brett Eldredge. The song was written by Eldredge and Carnival Music’s Scooter Carusoe and produced by Luke Laird.

BMI’s Bradley Collins and ASCAP’s Michael Martin each spoke and welcomed the crowd to an almost rainy celebration. They recognized the song as Eldredge’s third consecutive No. 1 song and Laird’s second as a producer.

Carusoe praised Eldredge as an artist and songwriter but also commended him as a person. He said, “I’ve been around a long time, and Brett is the most fondly spoken of. I want to recognize him as a pal.”

Warner Bros. CEO/President John Esposito took the mic to offer his congratulations, as did Carnival Music’s Frank Liddell, Warner’s Scott Hendricks, Sony/ATV’s Josh Van Valkenburg, and representatives from CMA and CRB. Avenue Bank’s Ron Cox announced a donation to the Alzheimer’s Fund on behalf of Carusoe and Eldredge.

When Eldredge took the stage, he recognized his parents and brother who were in attendance. Many thanks were given to his manager, Warner Bros. team, publishers and all the believers.

“This is such an amazing feeling that never gets old,” said Eldredge. “Five years ago, I had a meeting with Espo that ended with me saying that I believed in him, and him saying he believed in me.”
