"Orlando locker room pep talk with the band before the show!" - Orlando, Florida, April 11, 2013

Before opening up for Taylor Swift on the Red Tour on Thursday, Brett Eldredge and his bandmates snuck into the locker room of the Orlando Magic basketball team. The tour stopped at the Amway Center in Orlando, and the intensity of the atmosphere rubbed off on the 'Don't Ya' singer. We hope he's not so hard on his band every show. Although, one almost sees a little smile cracking beneath his  shouting disposition...

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