Brett Eldredge Earns No. 1 Spot With ‘Drunk on Your Love’
“This is a special one,” Eldredge says in a press release. “I wrote this song back before I had one No. 1, let alone five! I always wanted it to be a single one day, and now it’s at the top of the charts! I am constantly floored by the amazing support from my fans and country radio. Grateful is an understatement!”
“Drunk on Your Love” is the second single from Eldredge’s recently released album, Illinois. The singer co-wrote and co-produced all of the project’s 12 songs. Following its release in September, Illinois debuted at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Country Albums chart.
As Eldredge notes, he actually wrote “Drunk on Your Love” a few years ago. He then played it for his good friend, Hayley Stommel, who in turn played it for her then-boyfriend, Florida Georgia Line‘s Tyler Hubbard. When Hubbard and Stommel decided to tie the knot, the couple knew that they wanted to include “Drunk on Your Love” in the festivities.
“The night of the rehearsal [dinner], they were like, ‘We want to use this as our song to unveil our whole wedding video,’” Eldredge recalls. “My song that I jammed with Hayley to years ago before I even had a record deal is now on their video!”
“Drunk on Your Love” and the rest of Illinois are available for download on iTunes.
