His lead single is "The Difference." The Rhett Akins, Ben Burgess, Devin Dawson and Jacob Durrett-penned song offers a glimpse into his real-life courtship with fiancée actress Sabina Gadecki.
Wammack, a 24-year old native from Muscle Shoals, Ala., mixed country, soul and pop. At 17, she was discovered by a Sony Music Nashville executive while performing at a piano restaurant in Muscle Shoals. Five years later, she received a record deal from Sony Music Nashville.

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.
