New Brett Eldredge Song "Gabrielle" to Arrive on Friday

Brett Eldredge hopes to brighten your week with the arrival on a brand-new track this coming Friday.


"Okay okay, I’ll spill the goods," Eldredge tweeted Monday. "The world premiere of my new single 'Gabrielle' is this Friday! I hope it brings you some happiness."


It seems that Eldredge has been dropping lyrics from the song on Twitter since at least late March. His cryptic tweets since then have included lines like, "Sometimes you gotta lose yourself, to make your way back home," and, "Empty streets and whistlin' pines, but not a day goes by, you don't crowd my mind."


Meanwhile, Eldredge adds in a statement that "Gabrielle" is about a relationship that "didn't quite work out and you always wonder what it could have been." Eldredge co-wrote "Gabrielle" with producers Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk. It's his first new music since the #1 hit "Love Someone" in 2018 and is scheduled to impact country radio on April 27.

Dustin Lynch Previews Fiery Video for "Momma's House"

Dustin Lynch is bringing the heat in his latest music video--literally.


The country stud's official video trailer for "Momma's House" shows what looks like an entire neighborhood--everything from mailboxes to the local watering hole--going up in flames. 


"It was really the first music video where we built sets because we had to burn them," Lynch tells ET. "It was a crazy fun day of just walking into these different buildings that we had built specifically, like the bar scene...This was strictly a bar built to be burnt down.


It was kind of cool to be a part of." He adds that shooting a fire-filled video came with its fair share of risk. "Everybody was in ventilators except myself and the director. It was crazy just having a camera crew with oxygen masks on filming us in this blaze," he said. "There was a flare-up on my face in one of the bar scenes there and I ran out and then I guess Mason, my director, realized what had happened and he's like, and that's a wrap!"


The full "Momma's House" video will debut this coming Wednesday at 10 a.m. CT on Lynch's YouTube channel. "Momma's House" is the latest single off Lynch's January LP, Tullahoma.
