Brett Eldredge‘s new album Illinois will be released this Friday, September 11th. The project contains twelve tracks, and while you will have to wait until its official release to hear the entire offering, CMT has made it possible for fans to preview ten of the cuts now.
In discussing his forthcoming album, Brett exclusively told NashvilleGab:
It’s definitely a depth of who I am. That’s why I wanted to name the album “Illinois.” No matter where you think the song is about, no matter where you go, no matter where you go in life, the roots of where you come from are always right there in your heart and you carry all that along with you wherever you go, and that’s kind of who I am as a person and what I want that album to portray, and I think there’s a lot of that on this album. So, “Illinois” seemed like a fitting title. And I love the word Illinois *laughs* and the state, so it worked out alright!
