Brett Eldredge returned to his hometown of Paris, Illinois to film the brand new music video for his current single, “Gabrielle.”
The nostalgic clip features Eldredge performing the reflective song in his high school gym, locker room and in a picturesque field as the sun sets behind him.
“We started the day filming this video in the basketball gym that my grandfather, father, brother and myself all played in and ended the day in an open field watching one of the best Midwest sunsets I’d ever seen,” Eldredge shared. “The visual is so raw and honest that it feels like I’m still there in that gym. I can almost hear the lights buzz as they warm up before turning on completely and smell the old wood of the gym floor. I hope this song and the nostalgia we captured in the video inspires people to chase down opportunities your heart gives you, even if it might not work out in the end. You’ll be glad you never let fear hold you back.”
“’Gabrielle’ is about a love that didn’t quite work out and you always wonder what it could have been,” Eldredge previously shared of the piano-driven track, which he co-wrote with award-winning producers Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk. “It could’ve ended up being something amazing and you wonder what they’re doing in their life right now and go back to those feelings when you hear the song.”
