Young punches his "Ticket to L.A."
Wednesday, September 12, 2018
– Brett Yong will punch his "Ticket to L.A." in December because that when his soph disc hits the streets.
"Ticket to L.A." comes out Dec. 7 on BMLG Records with 13 songs. He co-wrote 10 of the songs with writers including Shane McAnally, Hillary Lindsey and Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley.
"It's been four-and-a-half years that I've been in Nashville," said the Southern California native. "A lot has happened, the first record has been really good to me, and I'm really, really proud of it. But just having a new batch of songs. It's like breathing new life almost."
Young scored four PLATINUM-certified number one singles, one 3X Platinum hit and an ACM win for New Male Vocalist of the Year on his debut. Hits included "Sleep Without You," "In Case you Didn't Know," "Like I Loved You" and "Mercy."
Young worked once again with producer Dann Huff, executive producer Jimmy Harnen and engineer/mixer Justin Niebank on the new CD.
"I decided to name the album 'Ticket to L.A.' because flying home to Los Angeles has become such a big part of my life," Young said. "A lot of the first record reflected a kind of hard point in my life when I was moving from Los Angeles to Nashville, but I'm in a completely different place now. I'm so happy, and I think you can really hear that shift on the new record."
Pop singer Gavin DeGraw sings on "Chapters."

CD reviews for Brett Young
Brett Young had a hit out of the box with "Sleep Without You," as ear candy of a song. His soulful vocals carry the percolating song that seemed designed with airplay in mind. If Young were a band, this is the type of song that Rascal Flatts might cover. In fact, the airplay bent could be said of most of the dozen songs on the Californian's major label debut after five indie releases.
"Close Enough" has a funky side, trying to get the singalong going with the opening »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
