As I mentioned in my article, That One Time Brett Eldredge And Frankie Ballard Almost Played Lansing here at witl.com, the first time I met Brett Eldredge was when he was just starting out and he visited my show in 2010 to perform and promote his debut single, "Raymond".

The song only made it to #23 on the chart but it's a great story about the special relationship between an elderly lady in a nursing home who suffers from Alzheimer's Disease and a young man who works at the home. There's way more to the story in this powerful song, and if you don't know it, be sure to take a moment to watch the video below.

Brett will be joined by Frankie BallardAaron WatsonRunaway June and Drew Baldridge at our Taste of Country Music Festival on Saturday, June 9th.
