We imagine that a passport to country music stardom remains elusive even for someone who ticks all the boxes. A signature on a contract with the Big Machine Label surely opens a few doors.
One of Big Machine’s newest signings, Brett Young, has released a 6-track EP and has just started the extensive radio and press circuit and the free promotional shows that accompany the new music.
Californian native Brett has had a hand in writing all of the songs on offer and they are all rather laid back, soulful country songs that would feel very much at home on US country radio.
The new single ‘Sleep Without You’ is accompanied by a video that we have included below. It features the current Miss USA Olivia Jordan which demonstrates the budget that most new artists could only dream of.
The label clearly has great expectations here and judging by the quality of the 6 offerings we can understand why. The EP has been produced by Dann Huff, whose CV includes projects with Taylor Swift and Reba, and we expect that Young will be given optimum exposure to showcase his undoubted talents.
The single is being heavily promoted on country radio mid April and we fully expect that Young will be someone to watch out for during 2016.
