Ahead of Friday’s release of his brand-new album, Sunday Drive, Brett Eldredge is adding to the excitement by sharing the official music video for current single “Gabrielle”.
Filmed in and around the high school he attended growing up in Paris, IL, members of his The Locals fan club were given a sneak peek on Monday before its YouTube Premiere. Fans can also catch the video as it airs multiple times throughout the day on all CMT and MTV broadcast platforms.
“We started the day filming this video in the basketball gym that my grandfather, father, brother and myself all played in and ended the day in an open field watching one of the best Midwest sunsets I’d ever seen,” Eldredge shared. “The visual is so raw and honest that it feels like I’m still there in that gym. I can almost hear the lights buzz as they warm up before turning on completely and smell the old wood of the gym floor. I hope this song and the nostalgia we captured in the video inspires people to chase down opportunities your heart gives you, even if it might not work out in the end. You’ll be glad you never let fear hold you back.”
In addition, Eldredge recently released the album’s title track, where his signature emotive vocal paints the scene of a picturesque childhood memory over piano accompaniment. Written by Barry Dean, Don Mescall and Steve Robson, the story unfolds as strings swell in the background and we learn the true impact that a seemingly simple “Sunday Drive” can have – for parent and child.
