Early Life and Education
Brett Young was born on March 23, 1981 in Anaheim, California. As a teenager, he went to Calvary Chapel High School in Costa Mesa.

It was also a major hit, debuting at number two on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and spawning the hit singles “Mercy” and “Like I Loved You.”
Young’s second studio album on the Big Machine label, “Ticket to L.A.,” came out in late 2018. Another big hit for the artist, it debuted at number one on the Top Country Albums chart. Moreover, the album launched the number-one country singles “Here Tonight” and “Catch,” both of which were certified Platinum. In 2019, Young released the EP “The Acoustic Sessions.” Next, in 2021, he released his third Big Machine album, “Weekends Look a Little Different These Days.” The album spawned the number-one country single “Lady,” and also featured the singles “Not Yet” and “You Didn’t.” Later in 2021, Young released the album “Brett Young & Friends Sing the Christmas Classics.”
