Brett Young: Being Honest Is My Theme

How much love can one young guy experience? If Brett Young's first three singles from his debut album are any indication, a lot. He's just being honest, though.

"A lot of people, when they put their first record out, they want there to be like a common theme throughout from song to song," Brett acknowledges in an interview released by his record label. "I wanted to do that as well, but not a theme from song to song so much as [a theme of] honesty ... And so I wanted as much of this record as possible to be kind of an insight into who I am through the music."

Brett's debut project couldn't be made up of all ballads, however. "It's funny because you still have to fill holes in a record; you have to give them tempo, you have to give them ballads ... so it's just been an interesting balance of wanting to tell my story and also make sure that it's a well-rounded record that works from top to bottom."

"Sleep Without You"

Whatever the California-born heartthrob is doing, it's working. His first two singles, "Sleep Without You" and "In Case You Didn't Know" both went to No. 1. His third, "Like I Loved You" is currently climbing the charts. See a list of upcoming tour dates here.
