Raise an ice-cold beer if you are ready to be poolside listening to country music all weekend long! Several leading voices out of Nashville released new hits, which showcases their phenomenal sound and impeccable songwriting abilities.
However, there is one musician in particular that caught our eye, and that’s Brett Young. The multi-platinum performer recently released his highly anticipated collection Weekends Look a Little Different These Days and we already have it on repeat.
The eight-track record, highlights life’s full-circle journey, romance, and his growth as an artist.“I write what I know and what’s going on in my life,” Brett explains to Billboard. “That’s always what I want to share with my fans: ‘This is what’s going on.’ I think themes evolve the more you’re writing toward the project, sometimes not on purpose. This became a pretty clear picture of where I’m at in life and as a songwriter,” he adds.

The blue-eyed heartthrob is seeing the world more clearly, now that he is older and wiser. The country star turned 40-years-old earlier this year and his age is having a positive effect on his creativity and writing. “I think we’re all a little wild and not prepared for most things in life in your 20s. I think I make better decisions now than when I was 25. I’m leaning into it and love being 40.”
With a great head on his shoulders, the rising country artist is hitting the road to perform Weekends Look a Little Different These Days live and in person. His tour with Maddie & Tae, Filmore, Ryan Hurd, and Matt Ferranti will start on September 11 with back-to-back nights in Fort Worth, Texas. Young is giving us fans enough time to learn his record front and back before purchasing tickets.
