Brett Young married longtime girlfriend Taylor Mills in Palm Springs, Calif., on Nov. 3.
Brett and Taylor, who got engaged in February 2018, have known each other for more than 10 years.
Love has been a constant theme for Brett since releasing his self-titled debut album in February 2017. The 12-track offering—of which Brett co-wrote 11 songs—is a give-and-take mix of love songs and heartbreak ballads, sans any obligatory “party” anthems that usually pepper a first project in today’s country-radio-friendly-first atmosphere.
“I think, for me, love songs and heartbreak songs are the easiest songs to write because it’s just straight from personal experience,” said Brett to Nash Country Daily. “I think everybody’s felt both of those. Everybody’s been in love, everybody’s had heartbreak. We noticed that when we put it together, the 12 songs that would make the record that we liked, there’s not a party song on this record. I’ve written a ton of party songs, and not that there’s anything wrong with that. I think, in trying to tell my story and let people get to know me, it seemed like we should talk about things that I’ve lived.”
Brett will be recognized as the 2018 ASCAP Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year at the 56th annual ASCAP Country Music Awards on Nov. 12 in Nashville. Brett will released his sophomore album, Ticket to L.A., on Dec. 7.
