Review for Brett Young:
In addition to the tour news, Young will release a new version of his song, “You Ain’t Here To Kiss Me,” (BMLG records) on Friday, just in time for the nostalgic holiday season. Dubbed one of Young’s “best songs," (Billboard), he wrote the song alongside Tiffany Goss and Matt Alderman, with Dann Huff producing both the original and upcoming new version. Never afraid to write about his real experiences, the “painfully personal” (Taste of Country) track offers a new spin on the song, with stripped-down production allowing Young’s rich vocals to shine.
“I can be a very emotional songwriter and, for some reason, the sad, reflective songs, often come naturally for me,” Young shared. “The song is a true story about a situation my now wife and I had many years back - it just describes the feeling of missing someone and seeing everyone else around you in happy relationships. Dann Huff has been wanting to cut a new version of it for a while so we thought the timing was right to give it a bit of a new life around this coming New Year."
Brett Young has captured the hearts of fans everywhere through his honest lyrics and West Coast-meets-Southern sound, aptly dubbed "Caliville" style. With an undeniable string of seven No. 1s - "In Case You Didn't Know" (8X platinum), "Mercy" (4X platinum), "Sleep Without You" (platinum) "Like I Loved You" (2X platinum), "Here Tonight" (platinum), "Catch" (platinum) and "Lady" (platinum) - and two albums defined by a transcendent romantic spark, he has cemented his status as Country's master over matters of the heart.
The star broadened his emotional scope on Weekends Look a Little Different These Days, the project features his current single "You Didn't" and "Lady," whose lyrics inspired Young's debut children's book Love You, Little Lady, published by Tommy Nelson (an imprint of HarperCollins).
Young previously debuted atop the Billboard Country Albums chart with his GOLD-certified Ticket To L.A. while his platinum self-titled debut dominated the Top 20 on the Country Albums chart for 37 weeks, all contributing to over 5.5 billion global streams. Young was named ASCAP's 2018 Country Songwriter-Artist of the Year for his "melodic craftsmanship"(Billboard) and has also garnered nominations from ACM, Billboard, Teen Choice, CMT and CMA Awards as he continues to rack up nonstop hits as "one of country's most consistent radio stars" (Rolling Stone). Alongside Shay Mooney and Bear Rinehart, Young also penned "Long Way Home (From The Motion Picture 'Father Stu')." a song featured in the Sony Pictures film starring Academy Award Nominee Mark Wahlberg.
