Brett Young: What Feels Like Success To Him
Brett Young got into country music for the love of making music and not to be a rich man. Although he loves the fact that he gets to do what he does and make a great living at it to support his wife and daughters.
When asked recently about his career goals for the new year, he said that he’s hit so many of his goals. He told us, “In terms of country music, it’s never been about wealth, that’s for sure. So, for me to be able to wake up and be excited about going to work every day and have that work, and that job – whatever that may be – support my family, that feels successful to me.” He added, “And so, I’m blessed to wake up and enjoy my job every day and to put food on the table for the family, and that feels like success to me. ”
Last year, Young told us that sometimes he sits in his driveway to cry over a sad song. Brett believes that most people are also a sucker for a good sad song. He offered, “I think that that’s what people connect with the most, matters of the heart, right? You can write all the party songs in the world; we need those too. But I don’t think people are deeply invested in those. I think that’s when they like wanna turn up or kinda turn their brain off.” Young adds, “I think for me, if I’m listening to something, even right now I’m happily married with two beautiful little girls, and I hear a new sad song that I think is well written that I can relate to, I’ll still sit in my driveway and cry to it all by myself.”
