Alright brothers everywhere, the bar has been raised.

Brett Eldredge did more than just give a best man speech for his brother and new sister-in-law, he wrote a song for them that brought tears to the entire party.

Even Eldredge tried fighting back the tears as he sang the lyrics:

"When you start a family of your own,

I hope your kids run wild like we did back at home.

Barefoot in the grass, never think we'd grow up as fast,

And then we did, and here we are.

I sit here as your brother, your best friend til the day I leave,

Singing you my heartfelt best man speech."

Eldredge said in his Instagram post, "I didn't write it for an album or any project, I wrote it for my brother." It's an extremely sweet gesture to the new bride and groom, but we have our fingers crossed this ends up on his new album!

I woke up very emotional in the middle of the night a few months ago with the realization that my big brother was about to get married and that we were no longer kids anymore...I had been putting off writing my best man speech until it came to me at 3am and I wrote the whole thing in bed that brother is a great man and is my first call when life comes at me sideways...he and his incredibly smart and beautiful wife Lori are gonna have an awesome life together and I couldn’t be more happy for here’s my best man speech, i didn’t write it for an album or any project, I wrote it for my brother, and though it’s almost impossible to sing through the tears, hopefully you will at least hear my heart for my brother, my best's my "Best Man Speech"
