Brett Eldredge recalled his first sound engineers, namely his mom and dad, as he celebrated his second straight No. 1 single, “Beat of the Music,” at a party at the BMI building in Nashville, Wednesday night (Aug. 20). Joining Brett were his co-writers Heather Morgan, who was marking her first chart-topper, and Ross Copperman, who co-produced the song with Brett.
During the ceremony, Brett noted that his parents and his brother were on hand to help him celebrate his big day. He emotionally remembered their support when he was performing in high school. “My mom and dad ran sound for me,” Brett told the packed house. “My mom read every book on sound. My brother would tell everybody that this kid was going to be something someday.”
Brett's record label head John Esposito informed all that “Beat of the Music” stands as the most-played song of 2014 at this juncture. Brett toasted his label and his co-writers with a bottle of tequila as he thanked his team for their continued support. “You can’t do anything in this business by yourself,” he said. “Hopefully, we can have more of these parties.”
