Brett Eldredge and Thomas Rhett’s co-headlining CMT on Tour: Suits and Boots trek is drawing to a close, with only two shows remaining on the itinerary. Both guys released their second albums earlier in the fall (Tangled Up for Rhett, Illinois for Eldredge), so the equally-matched pair has taken turns opening shows, with a little time set aside in the show for some collaboration.
As both guys have varied musical interests, their collaborative portion of the show scans like a medley of pop music in 2015 with a few nostalgic numbers thrown in for good measure. At their November 21st stop in Kansas City, Missouri, Eldredge and Rhett took stools near the front of the stage and charged through Kanye West’s “Gold Digger,” Brooks and Dunn’s “Neon Moon,” Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor’s “Marvin Gaye,” Drake’s “Hotline Bling” and Silento’s dance-ready “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae).” Rhett works his way through the moves until he gets to the stanky leg, and Eldredge puts a stop to it.
“You had me on the whip, you had me on the nae nae, but the stanky leg,” says Eldredge.
“I did not have you on the nae nae, you were not there,” retorts Rhett.
After singing One Direction’s “Drag Me Down,” both guys were given Kansas City Royals jerseys from the recently crowned World Series Champs.
“We can keep these, right?” quips Thomas Rhett, before the pair launches into Tim McGraw’s “Real Good Man.”
Tonight Eldredge and Rhett will play Toledo, Ohio’s Huntington Center and the tour will conclude December 11th at Chicago’s Rosemont Theatre.
