There are very few things that Brett Eldredge lacks. He’s funny, charming, handsome, smart and talented. What more could you ask for? With a personality as big as his, though, he must want to expand upon his career and bring that vivaciousness to a wider audience, right? Well, the singer has some ideas of what that might look like and hopes to one day make it a reality.

“Acting is something that I’m very passionate about getting into. I mean, I grew up doing some acting stuff, but that was all lower level, but I feel like I’m an entertainer, so whenever a camera comes on, I light up. I turn into this extreme version of myself,” Eldredge shared with Sounds Like Nashville exclusively.

“I’m just very animated, and I think that’s a lot of what acting is,” he continued. “If you find a character that you’re supposed to portray, you give every single bit of yourself to becoming that character. And that’s what I do. Whenever I’m doing skits or anything, and I’m playing different character, I love that kind of stuff. So, I’m very passionate about, eventually, and I would say, hopefully, very soon, the next few years.”

As for the genre that the “Love Someone” singer would like the act, well, Eldredge might surprise you.

“Thrillers. I like thrillers,” he said after giving it some thought. “What would I want to do? I’d probably say, I like thrillers … Yeah, thrillers are my favorite. Thrillers.”

While his acting credits may be still a few years away, fans can spend the holidays with Eldredge thanks to his festive Christmas album, Glow Deluxe.
