Nashville all but relocated to Las Vegas this week, as the country-music community geared up for Sunday’s 51st ACM Awards. As a precursor to the big night, Rolling Stone Country and Ram Trucks threw a blowout party at Stoney’s Rockin’ Country on the southern end of the famous Las Vegas Strip. The headliner: ACM Male Vocalist nominee Brett Eldredge, who performed some of his most popular radio hits, including “Beat of the Music,” “Drunk on Your Love” and new single “Wanna Be That Song.”
But the Illinois native didn’t just sing for an invitation-only crowd and our cameras — Eldredge also invited us to tag along as he navigated radio interviews, soundcheck and, finally, the stage at Stoney’s. Check out the “Day in the Life” video above and then watch Eldredge perform (and talk about his hits) in the videos below.
