Brett Eldredge Took Twitter Cues From Blake Shelton

Posted on: March 27th, 2014 by Chris

Brett Eldredge isn’t afraid to let his freak flag fly on Twitter. In fact, his Twitter profile bio reads, “Step into the weirdness.” It should be no surprise then that Brett says it was Blake Shelton who gave him the courage to tweet his most random thoughts.

“I remember when Blake really, like, just started being Blake completely, and just didn’t care. He especially stepped out on Twitter and did that, and when he was completely honest with his fans and with people on Twitter and just was Blake, people accept you,” he tells ABC News.

Brett says while it times it may seem like he’s trying to be random, that’s not the case. “I don’t know what causes me to say what I say, but I say it and I just put it out there, and I guess people are entertained by it, so I just keep on keepin’ [on].”

Brett will no doubt have plenty to Tweet if he wins the ACM New Artist Award at the ACM Awards on Sunday, April 6. You can cast your vote for him, Kip Moore or Justin Moore at VoteACM.com.

Brantley Gilbert Takes The Dare

Posted on: March 27th, 2014 by Chris

It may not be as cold as it was at the start of the year but there aren’t too many warm bodies of water people are willing to get into yet, and Brantley Gilbert took a dip in one the other day.

He was dared by two of his close friends to take the Polar Bear Challenge, and he posted the video on YouTube.

He says he only has 24 hours to complete it. “I accept your challenge. Even though I just got this and I’m in Nashville, Tennessee finishing up this record and getting’ ready for a tour.” He then added, “We’re right outside of downtown Nashville. I’m about to jump in the Cumberland River which is still freezing cold.”

You can see what happens from there, but checkout his entry. Not bad. He then briskly swims back to the dock, pulls himself out of the water and shouts an expletive. You would too.
