Brett Young Can Relate to Latest Single
Brett Young’s latest single, “Like I Loved You,” is about that moment when someone breaks up with you, and as he puts it, has the audacity to say, ‘but we can still be friends.’ Brett was able to write the song from a real place because he says he can personally relate.
“Being on the receiving end of that it was hard. I mean it almost felt as if they had already ended it in their heart and moved on and they were ready for that. And when you’re not, it makes you feel very disconnected from a relationship that you were very involved in emotionally. And so I had a conversation with a co-writer, a friend of mine, Jesse Lee, about that and we both got very, very spirited about that topic and realized if we both care this much we’ve got to write this one. And I’ve been a big fan of this song since we wrote it, so not only am I glad it made the record I’m really happy that it’s the single.”
Brett kicks off his headlining Caliville tour on Saturday, October 14th in Charlottesville, VA, with special guest Carly Pearce.
