For the Reporter

The Washington State Fair welcomes Brett Eldredge with special guests Runaway June and Devin Dawson on Sept. 20 for the Long Way Tour.

Seven years into one of the hottest careers in country music, there are more eyes on Eldredge than ever before. And with the release of his latest album for Atlantic Records/Warner Music Nashville, those eyes will finally get the full story.

The “sensitive romantic” fans discovered on “Beat of the Music” and “Wanna Be That Song”? He’s back. The passionate crooner who could barely contain himself on “Lose My Mind” and “Drunk on Your Love”? He’s still obsessed. And making its first musical appearance: the hilarious personality that’s built a social-media following in the millions.

Eldredge dropped his first two albums into the top two positions of Billboard’s country chart with Bring You Back and Illinois, and did the same with six singles in a row all hitting No. 1. He tallied seven gold or platinum certifications, scored 2014’s CMA New Artist of the Year award and co-hosted ABC’s CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock.
