Our Top 10 Songs From Brett Young – Greatest Hits

Brett Young, the singer from sunny Southern California, caught my attention years ago with his amazing voice and lyrics we can all relate to. Can you believe it was 2016 when he blew up onto the scene with his first album called, get this, “Brett Young”? I know – very original… But man, did that album make some noise.

Today, I will talk about the songs that have been on repeat in my head since day one. Which tracks by Brett are your faves to crank up and sing along to? For me, it’s gotta be “In Case You Didn’t Know” – I dare you not to get that one stuck in your head. But now, let’s begin with the list, shall we?

Brett Young music hits

1. “Sleep Without You”

This song really takes me back. To all those times I’d stay up late just hoping my phone would buzz, waiting to hear from that special someone. Being so excited for a simple text. Brett really captures that feeling of not wanting to close your eyes without knowing they’re thinking of you, too.

And man, can he play guitar – I tell you, first time I heard this song I was tapping my foot the whole time. The lyrics really blew up, too, and the song managed to hit number three on the Billboard charts.

2. “In Case You Didn’t Know”

This is a highly popular wedding song, and you’ve probably heard “In Case You Didn’t Know” blasting at receptions. Absolutely everyone loves slow dancing to this song, and it was pretty much everywhere when it first came out.

I’m talking top of the charts, number one on the country music lists…this little love song was a big hit. I bet if I had a dollar for every time I saw two lovebirds swaying back and forth to this track, I’d be richer than old Mr. Moneybags. Where there’s a wedding, you can guarantee “In Case You Didn’t Know” will be playing at some point during the night.

3. “Mercy”

Brett sure knows how to bring on the waterworks with his songwriting. His song “Mercy” sure had me bawling my eyes out. This track hit number one on the country music charts and cracked the top 40 of the regular songs too.

Young really knows how to tap into those feels like nobody else, and when he writes a sad song, I’m all for it, even though this isn’t really my genre, Guilty pleasure, I suppose.

4. “Like I Loved You”

It’s crazy to think how a sad song about a broken heart could end up being the number one song in all of Canada. However, “Like I Loved You” did exactly that. Something about hearing someone pour their soul out over how much it hurts to lose someone really strikes a chord with people, and this track is deservingly in the top four of this list.

The song “Lady” by Brett is one of the sweetest things I ever heard. He wrote it for his little girl and her mom.  Ain’t nothing in this world better than your kids, and the missus and Mr Young really delivered with this track – it just melts me every time.

That “Catch” track sure showed everyone that Brett can do more than just slow songs. It’s from his “Ticket to L.A.” album. Man, it’ll have you stomping your feet like you’re on the fishing dock, even if you’ve never baited a hook in your life!  It’s a fun one for sure, and it was a big hit, making the top five on country charts for a long time after it got released.

“Here Tonight” just barely missed being number one on the country music charts, coming in at number two instead. This song is really catchy and has been among people’s favorites for a long time for a reason.  Even though it didn’t hit the very top spot, it showed that the crowd really dug this tune. It’s among my top ten for a reason!
