Brett Young will try to score his seventh consecutive No. 1 single with the release of “Lady.”
Brett co-penned the new tune with Ross Copperman and Jon Nite shortly before the birth of his daughter, Presley, in October 2019. The song, which will impact country radio on May 4, pays tribute to Presley and Brett’s wife, Taylor.
“‘Lady’ is easily one of the most special songs I’ve ever written,” says Brett. “I always knew I would want to write songs for my children, but didn’t realize the inspiration would come so quickly before my daughter was even born. It’s a message to Presley about her mom and it became a pretty obvious choice for my first single in a new chapter of music. It’s so meaningful to Taylor and I, and I hope it resonates in a similar way for anyone who listens.”
The new song features Brett crooning the sweet chorus: “I hope you look just like your mama / And love her like I do / You’ll see close to perfect patience / If you watch her every move / You can always run to daddy / You’ll always be my baby / But look at her, baby girl / And you’ll learn how to be a lady.”
“Lady” follows the release of Brett’s six No. 1 singles: “Mercy,” “Sleep Without You,” “In Case You Didn’t Know,” “Like I Loved You,” “Here Tonight” and” Catch.” The new tune will likely serve as the lead single to Brett’s upcoming third album.
