Home Country Music Star Drew Baldridge to Perform at Sunset Station in Las Vegas March 16 A contemporary country artist whose polished, upbeat music embraces elements of pop and R&B as well as more traditional flavors, Drew Baldridge was born in Patoka, Illinois in 1992. From a young age, Baldridge was singing in church alongside his father, and when he was in kindergarten, the youngster began taking piano lessons, though in his teens he switched over to guitar. In 2013, Baldridge signed recording and publishing deals with THiS Music, releasing his first single, “B.Y.O.B.,” in late 2013. Two more singles followed, “All Good” in November 2013 and “She's Taken” in April 2014, before he released his first EP, the four-song Crossing Country Lines, in December 2014. A second EP, Crossing Country Lines, Vol. 2, came out in April 2015, and featured two songs that soon became fan favorites, “Dance with Ya” and “God's Front Porch.” In June 2016, Baldridge released his first full-length album through Cold River Records, Dirt on Us. The album once again included “Dance with Ya,” as well as 12 other tracks, including a duet with Emily Weisband (“Rebound”) and a gospel number sung with his brothers Mike Baldridge and Doug Baldridge.
