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.

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.
