Once upon a time, a small-town boy named Brett Eldredge hailed from Paris, Illinois, released an album that spawned three huge number one singles and earned himself a legion of loyal fans. While he’ll soon be heading out on the road with Darius Rucker, Eldredge has been hard at work on new music, and it’s safe to say he’s gone a little loony.
Entitled “Lose My Mind,” the first single off his forthcoming sophomore album is true to Eldredge’s style: a catchy, toe-tapping tune full of soul. The song is a hyperbole for the all-encompassing feeling of new love, as it envelops every thought and completely drives you crazy.
“You make all my screws come loose,” Eldredge admits in the lyrics. “You got me perfectly confused / Always find a way to mess me up and drive me wild / I love the way you make me lose my mind.”
Written by Eldredge, Ross Copperman and Heather Morgan, “Lose My Mind” is the perfect song for a concept video and a not-so-subtle nod to the Gnarls Barkley hit “Crazy.” The video features Eldredge looking suave in a suit and then looking far-from-suave in a straitjacket, while he fantasizes about the woman of his dreams, played by Victoria’s Secret model Rachel Hilbert.
Speaking to People, Eldredge says of the video, “I’m a very high-strung guy, and I feel like I’m probably going crazy a lot of the time. I just wanted to make a fun video, portraying the way a girl kinda makes you lose your mind and completely wraps all of your thoughts around her.

It’s safe to say that a straitjacket hasn’t looked this good since *NSYNC donned them in their video for “I Drive Myself Crazy.”
