He may be a country boy from a tiny town in rural Illinois, but when newcomer Drew Baldridge hits the stage, he’s electricity personified. And when he opens his mouth to sing, country and R&B are commanded to live happily ever after.
Then there’s this whole hunk thing. Tall and slender with a sexy scruff of beard, espresso eyes and a smile that rivals Luke Bryan’s, Drew is melting hearts with his dreamy good looks and melting faces with his great grooves.
So, we find it impossible that this fun, talented and handsome country singer-songwriter could ever be anyone’s rebound because what fool would ever leave him? But, that’s exactly what his new song and video are about.
“Rebound” is the second single from Drew’s debut Cold River Records album, “Dirt On Us.” The follow-up to the sassy and fun “Dance With Ya” that had boots hitting the hardwoods, “Rebound” is a broken-hearted ballad about resisting the urge to get involved with a persistent ex after her current relationship fails. The combination of Drew’s aching, whiskey-soaked refusal with songwriter Emily Weisband’s velvety pleas give “Rebound” such believable texture that even the listener can feel the anxiety.
As sexy as “Rebound” is, Drew is one of the most happy-go-lucky, positive and upbeat artists in country music. His personality is effervescent, his sense of humor is zany and he’s as attentive as he is engaging. He’s a guy’s guy and a girl’s dreamboat. His band loves him, his label loves him, his fans love him and heck, we love him! Just check out this behind-the-scenes video of his pre-show rituals that has us even more in love with Drew.
So again we ask, what kind of crazy female would ever leave Drew in the first place… unless it was for the opportunity to kiss and make up.
