Song:In Case You Didn't Know
Brett Young scored a couple of top five country hits with his debut album. In Case You Didn't Know crossed over to be a top 20 pop hit. It's too soon to tell if he can have a long music career. He was born Mar. 23, 1981 in Anaheim, CA. He started singing in high school. But he was likely headed for a baseball career as a pitcher. He was drafted out of high school by Tampa Bay and Minnesota. Instead Young attended Ole Miss, Irvine Valley College and Fresno State. But he injured his elbow in 2003. So he turned to music inspired by Gavin DeGraw. It's likely that Young was going to record Contemporary Christian Music (CCM). He self released some EPs and a couple of albums. He decided to try country music and he moved to Nashville. He signed with Big Machine in 2015. An EP was released and when Sleep Without You reached #3 on the Country Singles chart, he recorded an album with producer Dann Huff. Huff also produces Rascal Flatts. That's a group that mixes country and CCM and that's where Young is at too. In Case You Didn't Know reached #2 on the Country Singles chart and it reached #19 on the Billboard Hot 100. Young co-wrote most of the songs. He wrote In Case You Didn't Know with singer songwriter Trent Tomlinson, Tyler Reeve and Kylie Schlienger. Young is currently on tour and I expect him to record after the tour. We'll get a better idea of his longevity with his second album. Here's the video for In Case You Didn't Know by Brett Young.
