On July 13, Eldredge posted a photo of himself and Edgar. He wrote:
"[Two] years ago today, this lil fella [Edgar Boogie] came into my life. He was covered in fleas, so I gave him a bath. He was scared to death. He cried all night for several nights next to my bed... We quickly bonded in such an amazing way and he became my partner in crime..."
The "Beat of the Music" singer added, "Though I swore I’d never say it, I guess it’s true, I’m a dog dad, and I’m so happy I get to have this guy along for this crazy ride."
By late 2010, Eldredge shot to fame when he signed with Atlanta Records. His first single, "Raymond," debuted at number 52 on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and reached a peak of number 23. Since then, he has released four studio albums and nine hit singles.
"I have one goal - to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry. To me, that is the highest honor you can be awarded as a country music singer. So, given the opportunity to perform for the first time ever on the Grand Ole Opry stage is truly a dream come true."
In 2014, Eldredge won four awards - ASCAP Country Music Awards, BMI Country Awards, Country Music Association Awards, and American Country Countdown Awards.
