Brett Eldredge Recharged His Creative Batteries with a Quick Trip to Key West Earlier This Week

Getting away from the freezing temperatures in Music City helped get Brett's creative juices flowing as he continues work on his upcoming sophomore album.

"I went down there to go fishing and become inspired by the beautiful beach," Brett tells ABC News Radio. "It was 20 degrees when we left Nashville. It was 68 when I got there, and it ended up being 87 by the time I left, and so I was like -- I'm inspired! I feel amazing."

One of Brett's biggest hits, "Beat of the Music," was inspired by his time at the beach, so it's no surprise to learn he's always looking to get back on the water.

Says Brett, "Anytime I can get away, if I have a couple days off, I go to somewhere where there's water because I just get completely reenergized by the ocean or lake or whatever it is -- a puddle, I don't care what it is."

Brett will release the first single from his sophomore album once his latest hit, "Mean to Me," finishes its climb to #1 on the country chart.

Miranda Lambert Negotiates the Rivalry Between Oklahoma and Texas

Image Courtesy Sony Music NashvilleAs a Texas native who both married Okie Blake Shelton and now finds herself living in his home state, Miranda Lambert says she’s never confused about where her loyalties lie.

“Oklahoma has welcomed me, and I found my second home in my husband’s home state,” she tells the Tulsa World. “We love living there on our farm. I am a fan of the small-town feel, and I get to be myself,” she says of her adopted hometown of Tishomingo.

But she’s quick to make sure the Lone Star State has the last word. “My parents have instilled in me to be proud of where you come from, so I will always be very proud of being a Texan,” she adds.

This Saturday night, Miranda brings her Certified Platinum tour to the Sooner State’s BOK Center in Tulsa.
