Brett Eldredge Plays the Fifth Wheel

Nobody wants to be the fifth wheel on a double date, but Brett Eldredge made an exception on Monday night (5/22) so he could hang out with Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett and their wives at the Nashville Predators’ home playoff game. Rhett shared a picture of the all-star squad at the Bridgestone Arena after the big win, writing, “Solid crew tonight… headed to the cup.” Eldredge shared the same picture the next day, saying, “I’ll 5th wheel with this crew any day…”


  • Brett and Thomas were only a few of the country stars who made it out to the big game, including Carrie Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini, Chris Young, Dierks Bentley, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood and more.
  • The Preds are moving on to the Stanley Cup Finals next week.

Chris Young Releases New Single “Losing Sleep”

Chris Young has dropped his brand-new single, “Losing Sleep,” giving fans their first glimpse into his forthcoming seventh album due later this year. Young co-wrote the song with Josh Hoge and Chris DeStefano and it marks the third time he has co-produced with Corey Crowder. The song also follows the success of three back-to-back #1’s from Young’s I’m Comin’ Over album, which he says pushed him even harder in the studio this time around.


  • Chris says, “With every new album I think I want to try and write something easier and not so high in my register, but of course, on ‘Losing Sleep’ we push the boundaries even further and layer in some fun, new grooves too.”
  • “Losing Sleep” can be heard here.
