"Sittin' up at the tippy top before sound check ... the calm before the storm that is 50,000 people showing up!" - Detroit, Michigan, May 4, 2013

Taylor Swift's Red Tour hit Detroit on Saturday, and opening act Brett Eldredge thoroughly enjoyed playing Ford Field, home to the Detroit Lions. Here the 'Don't Ya' singer shows fans what a venue of this size looks like before a show, when the aisles are clean and the stage isn't quite fully assembled. He seems relaxed in this moment, feet up while enjoying the peace of an empty arena.

Brett Eldredge will play 19 dates with Taylor Swift in 2013, including a show on Saturday in Washington D.C. He’s agreed to document the experience for Taste of Country readers with a daily photo blog.

Taylor Swift Red Tour Dates With Brett Eldredge:
