Brett Eldredge released a new song and music video with a message we could all use right now.
Brett tells People magazine, “I wrote this song when I was searching to find positivity in my life instead of focusing on a day being dark and stormy and your emotions being in a tough spot. I make the decision to have a good day, even in the darkness, and that awareness gives me a better outlook on life.”
“‘Good Day’ brings me a lot of optimism in tough times and I hope it can do the same for others,” he says.
He carried over that message in the video. It starts with vacant streets, and closed stores . . . but that’s followed by clips fans submitted of themselves holding up homemade signs filled with positive messages
Brett has spoken out about his mental health and struggles with anxiety. In 2019 he took a break from social media, ditching his smart phone and going back to using a flip phone.

To start 2019, I am going to go back in time to 2002. That was the year I got my first color flip phone with a lil megapixel camera on it…I felt like a bad ass…I would carry it everywhere I went but never look at it to check the never ending “Breaking News” or constantly compare my life to someone else’s…I wouldn’t sit at the dinner table and be halfway paying attention to my buddies convo’s because I was watching someone’s story about how good, or bad they were at “Flossing” or how quick someone could chug a bottle of vodka and do a triple backflip into a pool…I was there, in the moment, with my friends, with life…Don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of amazing things about a smart phone…but I gotta take a moment to experiment and see what it’s like to be here, RIGHT NOW, lost in the music and not in a screen…if ya need me, I’ll be on the T9 text machine…here goes the #FlipPhoneChallnege Happy new year! Love Brett
He told fans he was “Getting away from the noise and into feeling life and the sunsets and the rain and everything…damn its a powerful thing.”

I am creating music on such a deeper level than ever and now getting back to playing live, it’s all starting to make sense…I’m not saying it’s all sunshine and rainbows, life is life, but it can and will be beautiful! I can’t wait to see you all…this whole flip phone thing has been amazing, you really realize how much time ya spend staring at a screen and not in the moment 😬 I got a Polaroid camera and am mailing pictures to my team of this journey…so if you were wondering, I’m alive and well, and I can’t wait for what’s to come…see ya soon
