Brett Eldredge Talks No. 1 Song 'Don't Ya'

(Radio.com) When Brett Eldredge sat down to write "Don't Ya" with Chris DeStefano and Ashley Gorley, he was simply thinking of how girls play tricks on their minds.

In an interview with Radio.com, Eldredge said he thinks this is the main reason why "Don't Ya," now No. 1 on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart, resonated with country fans.

"I think that the guys see that girls play tricks on our minds and are like, 'Yeah they do that!' And the girls do the same thing and are like, 'Yeah, we do that,'" he said.

It doesn't hurt that the song has "a good feeling groove" either, something Eldredge tries to create in all his music. "If a song takes you to a place where you feel good as soon as it comes on, and the melody gets stuck in your head at the first chorus, and you're just grooving and you're dancing and it takes you to a place where you're just happy, that's what I love to do," he said. "To be able to instill an emotion in somebody and make them feel happy. If they need a good cry, let them have a good cry or if they need to fall in love, or want to feel love, they hear a love song. This song is just a sexy little flirtation song. That's what 'Don't Ya' does."

Eldredge hopes the success of "Don't Ya" provides as an introduction to his music, especially to his debut album Bring You Back, which was released August 6. more.
