Brett Eldredge delivered a “Best Man Speech” the best way he knew how.
The country crooner was designated as the Best Man for his brother, Brice Eldredge’s, wedding. Eldredge put his talents to use and performed a one-of-a-kind song in dedication to his brother. He shared videos of the performance on Instagram.
“I woke up very emotional in the middle of the night a few months ago with the realization that my big brother was about to get married and that we were no longer kids anymore,” Eldredge explained in the post’s caption.

I woke up very emotional in the middle of the night a few months ago with the realization that my big brother was about to get married and that we were no longer kids anymore…I had been putting off writing my best man speech until it came to me at 3am and I wrote the whole thing in bed that night…my brother is a great man and is my first call when life comes at me sideways…he and his incredibly smart and beautiful wife Lori are gonna have an awesome life together and I couldn’t be more happy for them…so here’s my best man speech, i didn’t write it for an album or any project, I wrote it for my brother, and though it’s almost impossible to sing through the tears, hopefully you will at least hear my heart for my brother, my best friend…here's my "Best Man Speech"
“I had been putting off writing my best man speech until it came to me at 3 a.m.” he continued. “I wrote the whole thing in bed that night.”
The song is a direct message to Eldredge’s brother: “When you start a family of your own / I hope your kids run wild like we did back home / Barefoot in the grass, never thinking we would grow up fast / and then we did…”
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
