Brett Eldredge Wrote a Song for His Brother (And It Made Him Cry) (His Mom Too)

Brett Eldredge‘s new, self-titled album includes one very special song that he wrote for his older brother Brice.

“I’m very close to my brother, we lived together for many years — six or seven years — we’re really close,” Brett told One Country and other media outlets during a recent interview. “He moved here two years after I moved here. We’re really tight but we play it tough.
You don’t always tell your brother when you’re going through something but you almost always know.”

“I remember when my bother was going through a time, I was on a trip and I bought an old new guitar — new for me — and I started saying what I would say to him as if we were having a conversation,” he continued. “I was still playing it tough, like I’m not going to talk to him about it .. I opened it with ‘Brother, I think it’s time we talked, why do guys like us spend most of our lives playing it tough?”

The chorus is enough to wreck, make you call your own sibling and maybe your friends’ siblings, too:

When we played ball out in the yard
We raced our bikes, we wrecked our cars
Stayed out late in midnight bars, whoa
We got drunk, got into fights
Fell for the same girl once or twice
Somehow made it out alive
But in the end always there for each other

Brett doesn’t buy the old standard that men are supposed to keep their emotions to themselves.

“It’s OK to tell your friend or brother that you love them, that you care about them, that you’re always there for them,” Brett said. “It didn’t have to be just about your brother, it can be about your best friend too.”

As for Brice? He tried to play it tough.

“I emailed it to him because I get really uncomfortable being around him, playing it for him,” Brett admitted. “I actually heard from a buddy that he got really emotional from it, because he didn’t tell me at first.”

It’s OK, Brice, I cried too.
