Brett Eldredge is Jolly on “Mr. Christmas”

Brett Eldredge, American country heart throb, brings us holiday cheer on Mr. Christmas. The 11-track album is full of joy and redefines the classics of the season. It follows the 2016 release of Glow, which gave Eldredge the nickname “Mr. Christmas.” The album, promptly titled, solidifies Brett Eldredge’s status in holiday music.

A Prompt Title

“Mr. Christmas”, the title track of the album, is a smooth, buoyant new holiday track. Brett’s silky, boisterous voice shines over a festive large band. He croons of holiday cheer and smiles on the song, singing “Call me Mr. Christmas / I’ll make your spirit bright.” Eldredge performed the festive title track last week on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. 

Reigniting the Classics

Brett Eldredge appreciates the classics. At least, that’s what we think since he’s released his rendition of “Jingle Bells.” The country star gets jolly as he croons one of the most popular Christmas tracks. Eldredge sings accompanied by a band, which complimented his rich and velvety vocals. The quintessential song of Christmas is reignited in “Mr. Christmas” by Brett Eldredge.

A Balanced Carol

Eldrege croons another true classic, “O Come All Ye Faithful,” but he’s not so upbeat. He sings with a controlled presence, balancing atop a band of silken horns. The track is a notable demonstration of Brett’s vocal range, as he rises from a quiet melody to a silky ballad. This Christmas carol conveys the infectious joy of Brett’s holiday cheer.

A Kid’s Christmas

It seems the country star is not afraid to include children’s tracks. On “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town,” Eldredge truly transforms into “Mr. Christmas.” Brett’s holiday cheer is near-intoxicating, as is his reimagining of the supporting instruments. We can’t help but get in the holiday spirit when we hear Eldredge sing, “But do you recall / The most favorite reindeer of all?”.
