Brett Eldredge is going scantily clad on Instagram!

The country newcomer may have figured out a way to get the fans’ attention before this Sunday’s ACM Awards: post a shirtless pic on the beach in Mexico.

“Check mate...now lemme take a drank!” Bret captioned the photo.

The “Beat of the Music” singer is nominated for the fan-voted ACM New Artist of the Year and has been responding via Twitter to fans throwing votes his way in the category.

He’s up against Justin Moore and Kip Moore for the trophy.
