Brett Eldredge: A Hometown Hero for Illinois

Heads Back to Paris, in the Spring

On Friday night (March 31), Brett Eldredge isn’t just going back to the baseball fields of his hometown to play games.

He’s actually going home to Paris, Illinois to make his old Laker Stadium new again. And while he’s in town, he’ll be putting on a show for a few thousand friends, family and fans in his beloved Paris High School gymnasium.

“The ultimate dream is to come back to your hometown to say thanks,” Eldredge says.

The special will feature the exclusive performance, an in-depth interview and an intimate look into the people and places that shaped Eldredge — and the other two heroes Chris Stapleton and Darius Rucker — from a young age. CMT Hometown Heroes premieres on Friday at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
