What Happened When We Gave Brett Eldredge a Camera at the CMAs
It's a big night for Brett Eldredge: The CMA Awards in Nashville! But before the nominee hits the red carpet, he gets a quick wardrobe adjustment (gotta look good for the cameras, right?).
And there he is! The new artist nominee faces a swarm of photographers outside the Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday.
MAKEUP YOUR MIND
It's touch-up time as the singer gets a little puff of powder from a helpful makeup artist before returning to the spotlight (he even made a stop in the PEOPLE photo booth!).
Liz Hernandez of Access Hollywood asks Eldredge the tough questions (you know, things like, "Who are you wearing?") before he heads into the arena.
BUT FIRST …
Let the man take a selfie …
… And make some new friends. Eldredge pauses for a photo op with fellow presenter Tim Tebow.
One more selfie, this time with Ellen swag and a Miller Lite can in hand.
Congrats, Brett! Eldredge (a PEOPLE Ones to Watch) triumphantly heads backstage after winning the CMA new artist award during the show.
The giddy guy hoists his trophy for photographers in the press room to see. "Best night of my life!" he posted to Instagram. "Thank you all for believing in me, it means so so much."
The envelope, please! Eldredge holds onto a cool keepsake from the night: his winning envelope.
