Brett Young has scored six number-one country songs since he came on the Nashville music scene in 2016 with his debut single, “Sleep Without You.” Brett is a native of Orange County, California, and was a college baseball player who suffered an injury and took up songwriting as a result.
Young independently released a self-titled four-song EP in 2007, followed by a couple more albums from his Los Angeles base. When he moved to Nashville after eight years of pursuing music in L.A., he was signed by the Big Machine Label Group in 2015 and released his debut single in 2016.
In his personal life, Brett married his longtime girlfriend, Taylor Mills, in 2018, and the couple has two daughters together, one born in 2019 (Presley) and the other born in 2021 (Rowan).
