Brett Eldredge Says It’s a Pleasure Doing Business with Tour Mates Little Big Town

Image Courtesy Warner Music NashvilleBrett Eldredge is a huge fan of his tour mates Little Big Town's harmonies and dynamic live show, but he's just as big a fan of the way they do business. In fact, LBT's approach to touring reminds Brett of something he learned from his dad.

"I mean, they're so nice to everybody," Brett says of Little Big Town. "I think that's the one thing I've learned from my dad. He was a business guy that would shake everybody's hand and see everybody, because people remember that. I want to work with people that I love to work with just the same way."

Brett appreciates the laid-back vibe Little Big Town creates backstage before and after the shows, too.

He says, "Everybody's just there to have fun and play music. It's like, 'This is what it's all about.' I know that that's what Little Big Town's all about."

Brett will be on the road with Little Big Town's Pain Killer tour through December 13.
