A new year is often time for reflection and in 2019, Brett Eldredge is reminiscing about the good ol’ days where flip phones were prevalent. In fact, he’s so nostalgic that he’s traded in his iPhone for his 2002 cell phone. In a lengthy Instagram post, Brett shares his decision to take a break from having instant access at his fingertips and to be more present.

“To start 2019, I am going to go back in time to 2002,” he captions a photo with his guitar, a notebook and his old phone. “That was the year I got my first color flip phone with a lil megapixel camera on it…I felt like a bad ass…I would carry it everywhere I went but never look at it to check the never ending ‘Breaking News’ or constantly compare my life to someone else’s…I wouldn’t sit at the dinner table and be halfway paying attention to my buddies convo’s because I was watching someone’s story about how good, or bad they were at ‘Flossing’ or how quick someone could chug a bottle of vodka and do a triple backflip into a pool.”

He continues, “I was there, in the moment, with my friends, with life…Don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of amazing things about a smart phone…but I gotta take a moment to experiment and see what it’s like to be here, RIGHT NOW, lost in the music and not in a screen…if ya need me, I’ll be on the T9 text machine…here goes the #FlipPhoneChallnege.”

Brett is likely writing songs for what will be his fifth studio album. While he released the deluxe edition of his 2016 holiday album, Glow, last year, he hasn’t revealed new original music since 2017’s self-titled album. Here’s to hoping for much creativity with his T9 phone and new tunes from Brett in 2019!
