Brett Young Made a Song So Personal, That It Might Be Untouchable

Brett Young Made a Song So Personal, That It Might Be Untouchable

Brett Young recently topped the country music airplay chart with a song that he’s not sure that he can top.

Brett says, “I think I fought really hard to this point to only say things in my music that do connect and resonate with me. Cause I never felt like it was okay to ask fans to feel connected if I wasn’t.”

“Lady” was Brett’s most recent number-1, and it is also one of the most personal songs that he’s recorded up until now in his career. It’s a musical wish to his daughter, about how Brett hopes that she turns out just like her mom. As far as personal songs go, Brett thinks that’s going to be pretty hard to beat, “There are some topics that are gonna be hard to touch, you know, like this is literally a song about my wife to my daughter. I don’t know that I’ll ever do anything that personal. Not because I don’t want to, I just don’t know that there’s something that personal that I can ever do again. So, all the songs are personal in their own way, but yeah, I don’t think this one’s touchable.”

While fans loved the track and it became a huge hit for him, Brett does realize this raises one big problem. He and wife Taylor, are expecting another daughter this summer.

So, his older daughter Presley has her song, it kind of puts pressure on him to create another song for daughter number-2 some day, “Who knows, I mean, maybe my daughter’s gonna be fighting with one of her siblings about which one of their songs is better one day, and I’ll have to figure that out.”

We have faith that Brett will be making a lot more personal hit songs in the future.

Until he does, we can enjoy this number-one hit…its “Lady” — with a music video starring the two current ladies in his life…

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
