Brett Eldredge Honored by Illinois Hometown
Paris, Ill., celebrates “Brett Eldredge Day” on Dec. 22.
You can be famous in a small town, or if you’re already famous and return to your small town they'll greet you as a hero. Just ask Paris, Ill., native Brett Eldredge, who returned to his hometown on Dec. 22 and celebrated “Brett Eldredge Day.”
A crowd of 2,000 (essentially one-fifth of the town's population) turned up for the event recognizing Brett's achievements. Brett also received a proclamation from Illinois governor Pat Quinn, and new town signs were installed to let travelers know it is the place Brett calls home.
They gave me a key to the city!? This is crazy! Let's go open doors and stuff! I love Paris Illinois! Thank you!— Brett Eldredge (@bretteldredge) December 23, 2013
After the holidays, look for Brett to appear on Keith Urban’s Light the Fuse Tour 2014 as well as Billy Currington’s We Are Tonight Tour.
