Meet Our November A-Lister: Brett Eldredge, Musician

Active Member

“I’m at that place in life where I’m always trying to gain new experiences and see new cultures.”—Brett Eldredge, Musician

Even though he travels regularly for his shows, Brett still considers traveling to be his favorite hobby. Not only is he an A-List Preferred member, but he’s also a longtime Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Credit Cardmember—in July, he even became the first Customer to upgrade to the new Priority Card. Brett makes good use of the Rapid Rewards points he earns, and thanks to no blackout dates, he can sneak away to rest his vocal cords whenever he has a few unexpected days for vacation. Sounds like music to our ears!

Why Southwest “Everyone is always really kind, and they always treat my guitar well, which is a huge deal because it’s like a family member to me.”


Helping Hand “Traveling in the most comfortable way you can is a big part of my career because you need to get in the right headspace to go give all of yourself onstage.”


Old Friends “I started flying regularly when I did my first radio tour. I was on Southwest at least three times a week, catching 6 a.m. flights to visit with radio stations and showcase my music.”
