We always knew Brett Eldredge was a big ol’ Frank Sinatra fan … and we knew he considered Frank a huge musical influence …
… But we had no idea he could actually sound this much like Ol’ Blue Eyes!
Holy moly, guys.
On Dec. 14, Brett gathered industry friends for his annual Christmas party and show in Nashville, a black tie, invitation-only event where he dons the most stylish tuxedo you can imagine and croons the standards and classics.
And, of course, to warm up before the show, he channels his icon Frank for a mind-blowing rendition of “My Way,” and we’re just thankful he posted this video of the performance from his dressing room backstage.
It sounds just like Frank. Sheesh—it makes you want to cry it’s so good.
This year for the big show, Brett brought in Rob Mounsey, the arranger for Brett’s 2016 holiday album “Glow,” to lead a small jazz ensemble through Christmas classics like “Let It Snow,” “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “Walking in a Winter Wonderland” and “Silent Night,” according to CMT.
There was a special section roped off and reserved for patients from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to come and enjoy the music. Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and his expectant wife Hayley were also in attendance, along with Rock & Roll Hall of Famer John Oates, CMT reports. Proceeds from the event benefit the singer’s charity, the Brett Eldredge Family Foundation.
Fans on Brett’s Facebook page couldn’t stop singing his praises about the songs and that sexy suit he wore, encouraging him to keep the crooner performances and videos coming.
One fan wrote, “Brett, your voice totally amazing me No matter what genre you sing you blow me away. I would love to hear you put out a CD of all the old, past singers.” Another said, “Frank Sinatra would be absolutely proud of you singing that song.” And yet another fan posted, “Brett, you need to do a big band album with those Frank Sinatra songs. It would be awesome. You look wonderful, and love the way you sound singing those songs.”
We couldn’t agree more. There’s nothing like a sharp-dressed Brett.
Now, we’re officially in the holiday spirit!
