About Brett Eldredge
Originally from Paris, Illinois, Brett Eldredge started out as a songwriter, crafting lyrics for other well-known Country artists such as Gary Allen and Trace Adkins.
But his talents for singing as well as songwriting could not be ignored, and in 2010 Brett was signed to Atlantic Records as a singer in his own right.
Brett Eldredge has released 7 critically acclaimed studio albums so far in his career and won multiple music awards.
Country music fans today love his modern take on the genre, often comparing him to the famous crooners of the 50s, such as Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. This is mainly due to his soulful baritone voice, and his striking good looks!

Brett Eldredge First Dance Songs
Mean to Me
This Brett Eldredge song has the first dance written all over it! The way the music sweeps and soars, guiding the bride as her billowing gown glides across the floor.
It’s an effortless tune to dance to, even if you’re not an experienced dancer.
The lyrics are super romantic as well. “If I could be the fire in your firefly/The cool in the rain/The spark in your eye/The answer to your prayer/And the faith that sets you free/Then I’d be what you mean to me.“
Brett himself said the song is about telling someone how much they mean to you. “If I could mean half as much as these things, half as much as you mean to me, then that would be amazing“. The perfect sentiment for a first dance song.
Wanna Be That Song
The fact that Brett wrote this special song specifically for people falling in love, makes us appreciate it even more!
Like any good first dance song, ‘Wanna Be That Song’ builds slowly, then swirls, and hits you with some thrilling crescendos that’ll certainly create a magical moment on the dance floor.
This may not be a country song in a classic style, but we think it’ll appeal to a Country couple looking for a modern take on a romantic oldie!
Home Sweet Love
This charming love song is just so soulful, and the gentle rhythm makes it ideal for slowly taking your first dancing steps together. The pared-back nature of the music will certainly ensure that all the focus is on you and your partner.
We also love the lyrics of ‘Home Sweet Love’, as they are so touching and tender. They’re all about searching for someone who you can call home, and that now you’ve found them, it’s time to live in the moment. “You’ve been lookin’ for home sweet love and I’ve been lookin’ for you“

We picked the Airwaves Sessions version of this track as it’s performed acoustically, which lends itself perfectly to a serene wedding ceremony setting.
