Brett Eldredge on Music Videos
Brett Eldredge loves to tell stories, and that applies to his videos as well as his songs. The singer was the brains behind the video for his current hit, “Lose My Mind.”
“I had a long flight, probably a four hour flight, probably from California back to Nashville, and I remember I wrote the whole script on my iPhone. I was like, ‘Okay, I’m gonna be in a straight jacket and I’m gonna be in a psych ward and I’m gonna have visions of this girl. They’re carrying me through the hallways and I’m seeing this girl in all different situations.’ Ever since I started songwriting in life I see everything as a movie, even when I’m writing a song cause I love a movie. Making this video I just kind of drew it all up. ‘Okay, I’m seeing this girl the whole time and she’s around me but in the end it turns out I’m running my fingers through her hair at the end but really it’s a mop.’ You know, trying going to sell that to somebody as an idea. Everybody was like, ‘I love it! Let’s chase it down.'”
The video for “Lose My Mind” features Brett’s girlfriend, Victoria’s Secret model Rachel Hilbert.
