Brett Young first dabbled in singing when he stepped in to replace a leader of the band at his high school's Christian Worship meeting in the late 1990s. It wasn't until many years later when his first single, "Sleep Without You," quickly followed by "In Case You Didn't Know," launched him into mainstream country music. Both songs peaked within the top three on both the US Country and the US Country Airplay charts. His first studio album, Brett Young, dropped on February 12, 2016, and quickly climbed the US Country charts before it was certified Platinum while his follow-up album, Ticket to LA, dropped on December 7, 2018, and peaked at No. 1 on the US Country charts. His earnest lyrics and sultry, soft rasp adds an extra layer of romance to his music that keeps his fans coming back for more.
Young was a baseball player, more specifically a pitcher, from early on. After high school, he chose to attend college at Ole Miss on a baseball scholarship and turned down his pre-draft selections by both the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and the Minnesota Twins. It was while playing baseball in college that he suffered a career-ending injury. This is when he decided to leave his home in California and to move to Nashville to pursue music. The term "Caliville" is a combination of both cities' names and signifies to Young the idea of moving on and pursuing other dreams.
