Sasha Sloan Teams Up with Sam Hunt on New Song, “when was it over?”

Sasha Sloan and Sam Hunt have joined forces on brand new song, “when was it over?”, available now, April 23rd, on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new music.

Since Sam Hunt has been making music, he has melded pop and country together, creating one of the most popular movements in country music. Now, he has collaborated with singer-songwriter Sasha Sloan on the incredibly evocative track that features Hunts’ insane ear for country lyricism and storytelling and Sloan’s strong pop melody sensibilities.

“when was it over” opens with Sloan’s voice and smooth acoustic guitar guiding you through the story. Sonically, it is delicate, and it matches the lyrical nature of the song. “That time I met your friends, I was indifferent // The way you’re acting got me questioning // when was it over for you?”, she poses on the chorus.

Hunt’s perspective enters during the second verse, seconding Sloan’s questioning of a past relationship. The verses truly sound like you are inside their head as they sing; every thought and feeling that is lingering is being sung. “When I didn’t ask if you were okay // Aftеr a fight with your mom // The last time I stayed ovеr at your place // And you woke up alone // Was it the first time you pulled away?”, he sings softly.

Both Sloan and Hunt have exceptional voices, and the production is gorgeous, but it is the lyricism that makes this song as special as it is. It doesn’t feel overly country or pop, it just feels like a really well-written, natural song – the best kind of song.

“when was it over?” is co-written by the incomparable Shane Mcanally, who shared on Instagram that the duet and co-write was Hunt’s idea; and Sloan is the only artist he has ever told McAnally he needs to write with immediately.

In a recent press release, Sloan explained the meaning behind the song.“’when was it over?’ is about not being able to let go of someone even when you know there’s nothing left. Shane brought the title into the room and Sam and I both loved it. The rest fell into place from there.”

In many of Sloan and Hunt’s songs, they can be clever when talking about some of the heavier things in life, and it makes for great songs. But “when was it over?” is simply a classic, stunning song, (like Hunt’s “2016” or Sloan’s “Thoughts”) and sometimes that is all you need to make the perfect thoughtful heartbreak song.

Brett Young Announces Next Album & Drops New Song, “Not Yet”

Brett Young just announced his latest album, Weekends Look A Little Different These Days, due out June 4th, and dropped a brand new song, “Not Yet”, available now, April 23rd, on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new music.

After a busy month of releasing “You Got Away With It”, announcing his family is growing once again with a second baby girl on the way, and celebrating his 40th birthday, Brett Young has a full plate of exciting things to come both personally and professionally. Along with announcing a new forthcoming album, Young also dropped a brand new song “Not Yet” ahead of the project. The track is one of those good things that is sure to be eaten up and devoured by country radio; parallel with rising to the top of the country charts.

A song that demands to be heard on the way to the beach with your girlfriends or during a late-night long way home, cruisin’-around-town type of night, this new single from the singer-songwriter is as endearing and memorable as any good country-pop hit has been and will be to come. The starry-eyed and moon-chasing performer who has provided the public with access to being enchanted by his wife, Taylor Mills, specifically with the recently acclaimed #1 hit “Lady”, Young adds to his discography with “Not Yet”.

Brett Young Lands #1 Song At Country Radio with “Lady”

Brett Young lands the number one song at country radio this week with “Lady,” inspired by his wife Taylor Mills and daughter, Presley. The news comes just days after the singer revealed that their family is expecting baby girl number two, due this summer.

It has been a huge week for country crooner, Brett Young. Not only did Young celebrate his 40th birthday, but he also revealed the gender of his second baby on The Kelly Clarkson Show. On the heels of the news that he and Mills are having their second daughter, the singer also scored his 7th number one single with his song “Lady.” Follow us on Instagram for clips from each of Young’s hits live from New York City back in February 2020.

Serendipitous as can be, it could not be any sweeter for the Young family. Just as his last number one hit, “Catch” was inspired by his life experiences, “Lady” was as well. The song was written for his wife and his daughter. Inspired by fatherhood and seeing his wife as a mother for the first time, “Lady” is one of Young’s most emotive and heartwarming songs to date. It’s obvious why the song connects with so many country music fans.

We first heard the beautiful song back in February 2020 during Young’s sold-out New York City show. Check out the video below of its first live performance before the track was officially released…

“I hope you look just like your momma // And love her like I do // You’ll see close to perfect patience / If you watch her every move // You can always run to daddy // You’ll always be my baby, // but, Look at her, baby girl // And you’ll learn // How to be a lady”

It is even more exciting that the singer will now be able to share this song with his new baby, due this summer. In the five years Young has been in the mainstream country music scene, he has scored hit songs with six out of his seven singles, as well as, garnered a dedicated fanbase across the world.

Congrats to Brett and his team!

Brett Young Releases New Song, “You Got Away With It”

Brett Young’s new song “You Got Away With It” is available now, February 26th, everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.

2020 proved to be a busy year for Brett Young, between caring for his newborn baby and touring (at least for a little while) on his Chapters Tour, which was named after his most personal song from his 2019 album, Ticket to LA. Luckily for us, Young was able to make it to NYC in February just before having to cancel the tour due to the ongoing worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. Young and his wife Taylor Mills also announced a few weeks ago that they are expecting their second child.

Now, the singer-songwriter is releasing a brand new song, “You Got Away With It”, which follows his 2020 hit single “Lady”, written for his daughter Presley, as well as his incredible collaboration on “I do” with Astrid S. “You Got Away With It” is an upbeat tune with the classic Brett Young wordplay that we’ve come to love from the singer-songwriter. It’s about a girl that stole everything from a guy and he let her get away with all of it. From the start of the night, she stole his attention and a kiss at the bar and she goes on to steal his time and then his heart. He was just single on a Saturday night and let her get away with whatever she wanted.  

“You got away with it, so don’t you go breaking it / Girl you’ve been making it tough for me to not love every little thing that you do baby / You got away with it, and girl I ain’t hating it / It’s too late I don’t want it back, it’s yours and that’s that, and you stole my heart / You got away with it”

The Best Deep Cuts from Brett Young

It is hard to believe that it has only been three years since Brett Young released his debut self-titled record. In his blossoming career, the singer-songwriter has rocketed to stardom and created a loyal following of fans. We have believed in him from the start, even naming him one of our 2017 Artists to Watch. For fun, we decided to look back at his music and highlight some of our favorite deep cuts. Check out the full list below and give the playlist a listen.

“Chapters” – Ticket To L.A.

“Every page you turn is a lesson learned / Ain’t we all, ain’t we all just tryna get it right?”

If there is any song that shares Young’s story the best, it’s “Chapters.” The song is literally his life-story in 3 minutes. Fans have fallen in love with the track, which also features Young’s musical icon Gavin DeGraw, and it’s hard to believe that it has yet to become a single!

 

“Olivia Mae” – Brett Young

“Olivia Mae, I’ve fallen for you / The past year with you has been the best year of my life”

One of my personal favorites from his debut record, “Olivia Mae” is one of the most heartfelt songs out there. The album cut is a song-writing masterpiece and truly shows Young at his best.

 

“Back On The Wagon” – Brett Young

“All messed up, no matter what / You know I gotta have it / Even though it winds up tragic / Tonight, whatever happens, happens / And tomorrow, we’ll get back on the wagon”

This song is one of the most relatable in Young’s catalog. All about having a hard time shaking an ex, “Back On The Wagon” is a push-pull song that tells its own story but still manages to tell everyone else’s at the same time.

 

“The Ship and the Bottle” – Ticket To L.A.

“I was made for a dive bar / Usually good for the night / I can sure hold my whiskey / I can hold my wine”

Off of Young’s sophomore record, Ticket to L.A., “The Ship and the Bottle” is so piercing and clever. The heartbreaking track, written by Nicolle Gaylon, Chase McGill, and Jon Nite shares the message of not wanting to hold someone back in a relationship.

 

“Left Side Of Leavin’” – Brett Young

“The thing about a breakup / Sometimes you just gotta break down / Coming off a great love / There’s plenty of pain to pass around”

Another song that really checks all the boxes with story-telling and songwriting, this Young track is a special one. “Left Side of Leavin’” is catchy, innovative, and emotive – all adjectives that make up a great country song!

 

“Ticket to L.A.” – Ticket To L.A.

“Doesn’t even know that I missed my plane / Not a single thing I wouldn’t trade / For a ticket to L.A.”

Young’s sophomore record’s title track is one of our favorites! The flirty and romantic song is a much-needed bright spot in Young’s catalog of music. Also, it happens to one of the most fun songs to hear live!

 

How does our list match up to yours? Let us know and be sure to follow our ‘Deep Cuts’ playlist on Spotify. Check out more deep cuts from some of our favorite artists like Morgan Wallen, Carrie Underwood, and Luke Combs here.

Rising Artist, Matt Ferranti Releases Post Breakup Song, “Pick Up”

 

Fresh-new country artist and musician in Brett Young’s touring band, Matt Ferranti released a brand new single, “Pick Up” on Friday, August 14th. This is Ferranti’s first release since his six-song, self-titled EP that dropped in January.

This breakup jam mixes a heavy, pop production and pounding drums with slivers of banjo and steel guitar in the background, giving it a very interesting and unique sound. Although the general theme of the song is nothing new in country music—a male protagonist who can’t stand the fact of his ex-girlfriend going out with other guys—in Ferranti’s version, he’s blindly optimistic. He believes the door remains slightly open, and that if she sees his picture pop-up on her phone, she’ll go running back to him, when in reality that is not the case. This is a hypothetical that every hopeless romantic has drawn-up at some point in their lives.

“Thoughts running wild all across my mind / but it ain’t the same for you /
‘Cause you’re out with some guy / moving on with your life / I call, I call but you don’t pick up”

With the cancellations of Young’s Chapters Tour, in which Ferranti had his own 30-min opening set on, and Jason Aldean’s We Back Tour, in which Young was apart of, Ferranti has used this free-time writing new material. We anticipate that “Pick Up” is the first of many new songs to come from this rising, country talent. Fans will soon know that Ferranti’s skills go far beyond the keys and the guitar, but in singing, songwriting, and performing.

Brett Young Drops Studio Version of “Lady” Written for His Daughter

Brett Young Lady

During a sold-out show at the Hammerstein Ballroom, Brett Young performed this song in honor of his then 3-month old daughter, Presley. Now, months later, “Lady” is released as the newest single from Young, who reached #1 on the country charts and #3 on Billboard with his prior single “Catch”.

 

“I hope you look just like your momma / And love her like I do / You’ll see close to perfect patience / If you watch her every move / You can always run to daddy / You’ll always be my baby, but / Look at her, baby girl / And you’ll learn / How to be a lady”

The layer of emotion and unconditional love in this track is dense, you can nurture and feed on the authentic display of gratitude for both his wife and newborn. Lyrically, the 2017 “In Case You Didn’t Know” singer confides in his love, Taylor Mills Young, and welcomes the little one to take after her mother. Still, “Lady” does not fall short on the father-daughter dynamic. There are moments that exist solely to show how much Young cherishes his lady-in-the-making. The balance between the two makes it clear that the lessons will be derived from the woman in the relationship. Young pulls this idea from previous experience when his wife helped him get through hurdles and hard times.

“She’ll hear you / She’ll hold you / She’ll help you through / She’ll fix you / And she’ll fix me too”

The production parallels a traditional love song while also fulfilling the devotion to a child. Similarly, Kane Brown’s “For My Daughter” follows the same approach with “Good As You” completing the puzzle. “Lady” holds these two storylines, which are successfully told by the known vulnerability etched into the heartfelt ballads found in Brett Young’s discography.

“Lady” is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more recently released music on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.
