Brett Eldredge is arguably one of country music’s most eligible bachelors. Recently he chatted with Taste of Country Night’s host Sam Alex about his bachelor status and why he won’t be the next Bachelor. 

Eldredge’s career is only going up and because of that, his schedule is getting busier and busier. Now that more people are taking notice of the cutie, it’s been said that he should potentially be the next man looking for love on The Bachelor. When Alex asked Eldredge when he’d begin the taping, he just laughed.

“I don’t know,” Eldredge says with a smile and a laugh. “I think they’re still working on the last one.”

Even though he shrugs the comment off, he’s still flattered that anyone would put his name in to potentially find Mrs. Right (or Mrs. Right Now) on the show.

“It’s a flattering thing that People magazine came out and said ‘He should be the next Bachelor,’ but all this touring, man,” he says. “I just don’t have time to do it right now, but I’ve been a bachelor for a while, so I guess I’m at least kinda good at that part of it.”

So, he won’t be looking for love and handing out roses — but what about receiving them? When Alex asked Eldredge if he’d be on The Bachelorette, he grinned and said, “That sounds fun.”

For now though, Eldredge is focusing on another crazy stunt. He’s trying to figure out how to celebrate his third No. 1, and of course it has to be something wild! Find out details on how you can help the “Mean to Me” pick his stunt here.
