Brett Eldredge earns the most adds at country radio this week, pulling 85 new stations on his latest single, “Songs About You.” The single debuted on the Billboard Country Airplay at No. 38, on Mediabase at No. 46, and on MusicRow at No. 76.
“Songs About You,” which namechecks lines from tunes such as Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing In The Dark,” Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” and Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl,” was written by Eldredge, Jessie Jo Dillion, and Ben West. It is the title track to his upcoming June 17 release.
“There are songs that just transport you back in time to a moment with someone you love,” Eldredge shares. “Even though you’ve not been with the person for a long time, these songs take ahold of you. You might be having a fine day, then you walk into a store where the song is playing, and you’re transported into the past.”
