EDITORS’ NOTES

Brett Eldredge's 2013 debut introduced a next-gen country artist who could play it straight or push the envelope with equal ease. The funky, poppy "On and On" operates on a syncopated groove that's hooky as all get-out, and "Gotta Get There" combines loose-limbed R&B rhythms with hip-hop-informed vocal phrasing. Yet the piano-led power ballad "Waited Too Long" and the randy twangfest "Tell Me Where to Park" suggest a strong influence from a previous generation of country boys.
