Heck yes! Brett Eldredge brought some country spirit to the 90th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Nov. 24. Keep reading for how he thrilled the crowd with the holiday classic ‘Let it Snow.’
Brett Eldredge, 30, brought some yuletide spirit to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, singing “Let it Snow” and looked super dapper in a tuxedo, all dressed up for the big occasion. He stood atop a bridge on a float that featured ice skaters beneath him, really driving home how the holidays are upon us.
Brett’s made his triumphant return to the giant balloon filled extravaganza. He appeared back in 2013 and his smiling face showed he was clearly thrilled to be back in the Big Apple for the parade. In addition to Brett, the 2016 Macy’s Parade is really going all-out for country stars as he joined other acts such as Kelsea Ballerini, Maddie and Tae and Easton Corbin at the annual turkey day tradition.

Brett just released his very first Christmas album Glow in Oct. and he was overjoyed to be able to sing some holiday classics to the big parade because hey, the holiday season is well underway! “They’ve been listening to it since I got it done,” Brett said during a CMT.com interview. “They (his fans) were begging me to give it to them for a long time. I said, ‘I don’t want you to ruin it and not be excited about it when Christmas comes around. But the fact that it came out in October and anybody can get it, I couldn’t keep them from getting it. So I just had to give it to them.”
He says the Eldredge family favorites are “O Holy Night,” “First Noel” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Of recordidng the album, he said, “The energy of New York City, the vibe there just matches the vibe of this record.” Brett added, “The jazz, swing and standard music was born there. It lives there, and so I wanted to go where that kind of music lives. Where it’s always been classically made and recorded. I didn’t know how amazing it was going to be until I actually did it. I stayed in my favorite part of town, and I’d get up, go to the gym, drink my coffee, put on a suit, get to the studio, pour a glass of whiskey and start recording. I felt like magic was being made because Christmas music is magic.”
