Brett Eldredge Keeps It Clean and Weird on His Social Media Accounts

Image Courtesy Warner Music NashvilleBrett Eldredge scores his third consecutive #1 hit this week with "Mean to Me," but Brett's creativity can't be contained in his music. That's why he's one of country music's most active artists on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and now, Snapchat. Brett has posted off-the-wall observations and thoughts on Twitter for a few years now, but Snapchat allows him to capture wacky moments on video. Recently, Brett posted short clips of himself jumping in puddles during a Nashville rain storm and playing tennis with his camera-shy mom.

 

Sometimes Ya gotsta give your mom some flowerssss!

"I just want you to have a little bit of a different experience," Brett tells ABC Radio of his social media strategy. "Yeah, it might be wacky, but instead of saying, 'I'm going to the gym,' or 'I just had a great cheeseburger,' I'm gonna say something way crazier than that."

Brett doesn't worry about his social media rubbing anyone the wrong way since he makes a point of not posting anything offensive.

He says, "I figured out that as long as you keep it mostly clean, you can get as weird as you want. As long as you keep it clean, just throw it out there. I have a huge imagination, so I just want to be random."

Posting so much on social media benefit Brett's songwriting, too

"It keeps me creative in my mind," Brett says, "and I'm glad that people don't think I'm completely insane."

Of note, Brett is currently collecting ideas on how he should celebrate scoring his third #1 hit with "Mean to Me." He went skydiving when "Don't Ya" became his first chart-topper, and followed that up with a shark diving trip to the Bahamas to mark his second #1 hit, "Beat of the Music." Fans can submit their ideas for his third celebration by tagging him on Twitter, @bretteldredge, using the hashtag #BrettsNextAdventure.

Brad Paisley Recalls Flying, Sleeping, and Stealing on Air Force One

Arista NashvilleMonday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live! was the first of a week of shows in in Austin, Texas. One of Jimmy's guests was Brad Paisley, who closed the show by performing "Crushin' It," from the hit album Moonshine in the Trunk.

Paisley also chatted with Kimmel and recalled what it was like to fly on Air Force One with President Obama last year, when the president asked Brad to travel to Afghanistan to entertain the troops.

"It's absolutely amazing, but they didn't really build it for a lot of people to sleep," Brad recalled and added, "the seats recline, but they're not as comfortable as you might think, so a lot of the people were like, 'Just grab a piece of floor.' So it's like camp."

"So if the president has to go to the bathroom, he has to step over you?" Kimmel asked, incredulously. "Well, he has his own thing," Paisley explained.

The long flight did give Brad a chance to get some work done. "I had my laptop and we were working on a mix, and then realized I finished this [song] somewhere over the Black Sea, probably, on Air Force One."

"So in a way, the president was a kind of your co-producer on this thing," Kimmel joked before Brad cut him off. "He didn't use those big ears to listen in, and see what was going on?" the comic asked. 

"You would think, but no," Paisley laughed.

Being on the presidential plane also apparently brought out a sticky-fingered streak in Brad, however.  The singer recalled that his home bar is stocked with Air Force One-branded bric-a-brac. "I took a lot of beer and whiskey glasses from Air Force One, with the logos, just stole them right off the -- " 

"You stole them, from the plane, from the American people!" Kimmel interjected, feigning shock.

"I actually..." Paisley hesitated, before changing his tune. "I didn't actually steal them, but it makes for a better story."
