BRETT YOUNG EXPANDS HIS STORY WITH “CHAPTERS” FEATURING GAVIN DEGRAW TODAY
Chart-Topper Achieves RIAA 5x Platinum Certification for “In Case You Didn’t Know”
Nashville, TN – August 16, 2019 – Multi-PLATINUM selling hitmaker Brett Young continues to unveil tracks from his upcoming project THE ACOUSTIC SESSIONS EP (Sept. 13 on BMLG Records), today sharing the latest spin on his autobiographical song “Chapters.” Weaving his life story across four minutes and captivating fans with his “effortlessly soulful voice” (Music Row Magazine), the fresh track reunites Young with co-writer and longtime friend multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Gavin DeGraw as they record a stripped-down version at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, TN.
“This song is so special to me, it’s exactly my life,” Young said. “Getting to revisit and retool it with Gavin was a really cool experience, especially now that I’m in an exciting new stage of my life. I hope the fans feel like they can relate to it too and enjoy the new spin we put on it!”
Degraw told the Associated Press of Young, “I love his story. He had high hopes for something else and it didn’t work out. Instead of kicking a can about it, he found a new direction. It’s a real classic underdog story… I tell Brett, ‘You’re gonna be the next stadium act..’”
