Single Review: Brett Young - "You Didn't"



                                                                      BRETT YOUNG

                                                               "You Didn't" 






Brett Young has quite the name for himself on the country music scene for his soulful, sentimental delivery of some of the more lyrically creative love songs released in recent memory.  “You Didn’t” falls perfectly in line with where he excels, putting his heart on his sleeve and proclaiming his love and heartbreak in three plus minutes of a sensual and romantic yet irresistibly depressing goodbye.

Sad songs can be a tough sell in the mainstream market if not done right.  So far, for Young, everything he has released turns to gold, as the creativity used behind one of the simpler topics on the surface puts him in a category with only a few others.  “You Didn’t” is nothing more than a sad breakup song, but the story is told in a way that it makes the listener feel the pain and suffering, building to an ultimate and most dramatic climax.

“You ain’t done nothing wrong

I’m not where you belong

Don’t let one teardrop fall

Girl, you think it’s your fault

But it isn’t

I fell in love and you didn’t”

Written by Ashley Gorley, Jon Nite, and Jimmy Robbins, “You Didn’t” is the final track on his album, ‘Weekends Look a Little Different These Days’.  There is also an acoustic version of the album as well as the upcoming release of “Brett Young & Friends Sing The Christmas Classics” scheduled this year.

Brett has headlining gigs on his “The Weekends Tour” scheduled through the end of the year with a handful of dates in the UK in early 2022.
