With piercing blue eyes and standing tall at 6’ 6,” it’s impossible to miss Brett Young.

The former college pitcher and current CMA New Artist of the Year nominee uses his competitive edge to create music that critics, radio and fans cannot stop raving about. “A solid winner” (Music Row), Brett has spent many late nights in the recording studio strumming chords and perfecting lyrics that encompass his “Caliville” sound – the world between Brett’s SoCal roots and Music City coming-of-age. This can be heard on his GOLD-certified self-titled album (BMLG Records) now available everywhere. Produced by Dann Huff, Brett is credited on 11 of the 12 tracks establishing himself as an accomplished songwriter.
“I think my background has a lot to do with my work ethic,” expresses Brett. “There is a discipline that you learn growing up playing sports, which I did through college. It is always my goal to work harder than the next guy.”
Brett’s soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics are derived from a myriad of personal experience. One pass through the California native’s self-titled debut album, you are completely immersed in his love, passion, hope and honesty.
“Everyone leaves a trail of ‘almosts’ and bittersweet memories behind on the road to ‘the one’,” says Brett. “It has happened to me on my journey—it happens to everyone - but I’m learning to use those moments now when I write music. I’m a hopeless romantic who feels everything, and that shows in my songs.”
Brett makes love look like an art form with hits including his debut No. 1 PLATINUM-certified single “Sleep Without You” and the chart-topping 2X PLATINUM-certified follow up “In Case You Didn’t Know.” With over 120 million views, the video for “In Case You Didn’t Know” hit the top spot on Vevo’s Country Chart for six consecutive weeks and is currently the only Country song on Vevo’s list of Top 10 Videos of 2017. Previously nominated for a Teen Choice Award for Choice Country Song, “In Case You Didn’t Know” has also been up for Breakthrough Video of the Year at the 2017 CMT Music Awards. Additionally, Brett garnered an ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year nomination and two Association of Independent Music Publisher (AIMP) Awards nods: Writer of the Year and Song of the Year for “Sleep Without You.”
“I grew up with Marvin Gaye, Kenny Rogers, Tim McGraw— emotionally expressive singers. I like that the emotion carries the songs, where the music is almost secondary,” he explains. "Tim McGraw’s 'Don’t Take The Girl’ – that for me was the first time I heard a country song and said this is what I wanna do. That influenced me; as a songwriter and a performer, I want to connect like that. When your audience really feels what you’re singing, it becomes about much more than the show. You have a connection…you truly have a fan and a shared special moment."

Having previously toured with Superstars Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley and Thomas Rhett, the California native is currently on the road with Lady Antebellum’s YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR 2017 before kicking off his headline CALIVILLE TOUR this fall.
