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.

NYCS Swag Spotlight: Matt Ferranti

Matt Ferranti

This week’s Swag Spotlight might be a new solo-artist, but Matt Ferranti has been performing and grinding in the music industry for over a decade. The singer-songwriter has been a staple in superstar, Brett Young’s band, as his guitarist, for a few years now but he is finally embracing stepping out on his own. We spoke with Ferranti about everything from how he got his start in the music industry to where he hopes his solo-career will take him over the next year, and everything in between.

Growing up in Bay City, Michigan, music was a huge part of his upbringing. Ferranti’s father worked as a minister and his mother was a worship leader, so contemporary Christian music was his first introduction to music. As his taste developed, the singer became interested in all different types of artistry from John Mayer to Steven Curtis Chapman to Warped Tour bands, and even boy bands. “I am a hell of boy band fan,” laughed Ferranti, “Justin Timberlake is my jam. I grew up singing that all the time too.” Early fans of Ferranti might know that he often throws an *NSYNC cover into his longer sets.

After playing in many bands all through school, Ferranti found himself in a band that leaned more towards the contemporary country sound. The Detroit-based band found success, opening up for groups like Thompson Square and Gloriana. On a whim and a suggestion from Gloriana, Ferranti and his band finally picked up and moved to Nashville, Tennessee, with hopes of furthering their careers.

Knowing virtually no one in Music City, the rising artist found himself humbly working as a bar-back in downtown Nashville and working on improving his songwriting skills. He soaked up as much of the Nashville scene as he could, all while trying to hone his craft.

“I just kinda loved being in Music City. I just like being around it. It’s always kinda popping around. It’s crazy I use to want to be a writer at first,” he explained, “ Nashville humbles you real quick […] I had to bust my tail to really improve so that, basically it’s what they say when preparation meets opportunity […] realizing how damn prepared I have to be.”

For the next five years, Ferranti worked playing every gig and writer’s round that he could, even adding that he would write over 125 songs a year at times. Recognizing his talent and passion for music, his friend and bandmate, Brett Young told him that he was going to help him introduce fans to his own music.

This catapulted Ferranti into writing five songs he called “the best songs I’ve written in my life,” all in one weekend, and getting to work with Jimmie Robbins to help produce his debut self-titled EP. Out of the six songs on the project, “Make It to the Bedroom,” featuring Hannah Ellis is the only song he didn’t write. According to the singer, it was written by Ellis, with Nick Wayne and Josh Kerr. Ferranti loved the song so much that he knew he had to put it on his EP almost instantly; despite, almost losing it to another artist.

When it comes to the other five songs, he shared, “…I just wrote love songs about my wife. We’ve been together nine years and basically, it’s like, when I wrote these songs, I finally had a vibe.” Ferranti went on to conclude, “I feel like the whole record has a vibe and once we kinda curated that vibe, the lyrics just start coming. We had a story to tell, we had something to say.”

Currently, Ferranti is not only playing in Young’s band still, but he is also the opening act for him on ‘The Chapters Tour.’ We caught the singer last month in New York City, and it’s safe to say that fans resonated with him and his sound. As he continues to garner more and more fans, the artist hopes to work his way towards earning a record deal and hopefully playing shows with other artists or his own shows, in between shows with Young. He even mentioned that he would love to play with his good buddy and fellow singer-songwriter, Filmore.

Additionally, Ferranti hopes to deliver a full-length project sometime in 2020. “I felt like that was the perfect little click before the record comes out of who I am and what I have to say,” he says about the EP, “ And I can’t wait to finish the record. I think the whole story is going to be dope,” he added mentioning that he has seven more songs to record.

It’s clear from his debut record that Ferranti is the real deal. With just six songs, he has cultivated a clear voice and message for fans to get on board with. The passion that he has for music simply rivals that of any established artists in the industry, and we’re excited to see where that passion and talent takes him.

Brett Young Collaborates with Norway Native, Astrid S. on “I Do”

The opening melody to this track offers all the Selena Gomez “Back to You” vibes with a more upbeat and carefree feel to it. To go along with this, the single art is perfectly paired to these flower child feels from Astrid S. and Brett Young. You can only imagine dancing and swaying to these lyrics in a field identical to the one that captures the voice of this singer-songwriter from Norway.

“I Do” categorizes the difficulty in moving on from a past relationship, specifically when alcohol is involved. The entire track conveys the thought process of a recent victim of heartbreak in which a guessing game comes into play. It’s a coin toss as to whether this longing is solely the effects of alcohol and loneliness rather than a genuine devotion to this person; one where the goodbye is still fresh in your mind.

“Am I lonely? / Is it really you I’m missing? / or just somebody? / I think I’ve got mixed feelings / with Bacardi / somehow I just can’t explain / ‘cause I don’t want me to want you”

This track stands out from many other collaborations because it doesn’t necessarily need a second voice to add character or depth. Astrid S. is a whole identity and it’s even more evident after listening to this release. However, Brett Young lending his vocals to this piece separates the 23-year-old upcoming female artist from his rendition of the song. It seems to be two songs in one since both acts show their creative abilities despite their different styles, which makes this production so strong.

“And I try not to wonder where you’ve been / And I try to have a drink, toss it back, I don’t wanna think / I really try not to miss you, but in the end / I do, I do”

“I was so honored to be asked to collaborate on this track with Astrid. When I first heard ‘I Do,’ I instantly connected to the lyrics and storytelling, so jumping onboard and digging into something a little bit different was a no-brainer for me. I can’t wait for the fans to hear this one,” Young says in a recent press release.

Brett Young Shares Life Story on ‘The Chapters Tour’

Country star Brett Young held nothing back in front of a sold-out crowd when his Chapters Tour stopped at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Saturday night. Fans lined up all the way down 9th avenue to see the beloved singer-songwriter share the story of his personal life journey on stage.

Matt Ferranti, Young’s guitar and piano player was given the opportunity to showcase his solo act, opening for his band’s front-man. Donning a Kobe Bryant jersey in honor of the late basketball icon, the Michigan-native displayed five songs from his newly released self-titled EP, including “Love Somebody,” “Heaven to Me,” “Outta My Radio,” “New Ways to Love You,” and the single “Make it to the Bedroom.” Ferranti sings a lot about love in a style very similar to Young’s, and hopefully, we can hear his single receive some radio airtime. If you are unfamiliar with his work, he’s definitely worth a listen.

Young came out on stage twenty minutes later, also honoring Bryant by wearing a ‘MAMBA OUT’ shirt, singing his first radio single, “Sleep Without You.” Throughout the night, Young emphasized how there was a reason this was called The Chapters Tour, and he made that very apparent during his monologues and acoustic set. He was reflective of his life and career and even chronologically ordered the songs in this setlist. Young didn’t perform any tracks from his newest album Ticket to LA until he was finished with the songs off his debut self-titled album which included “Left Side of Leaving,” “Like I Loved You,” “You Ain’t Here to Kiss Me,” “Making Me Say,” and “Close Enough.” He even threw a cover of his idol, Gavin DeGraw’s “Not Over You” in the mix.

“I always thought this next song was for men that had trouble saying how they felt. I’m learning that the longer this song is out, the more women I met that said, ‘Me too! I didn’t know how to say it so I just pressed play and said this is how I feel,’” Young admitted before performing the beautiful ballad, “In Case You Didn’t Know.” “All I ever want to do is be so honest with you guys that you feel like you’re getting to know me a little better with every song. But the coolest thing is that if you’re getting to know me and it feels like you too, that there’s no cooler way to connect with music than that.”

Young then performed a long acoustic set, stopping in between each song, telling stories of playing restaurants in California to moving to Nashville and getting his record deal. He covered songs he used to sing at those small gigs including “Walking in Memphis,” “I Drive Your Truck,” and a track in which he recorded a studio version for, “Hallelujah.” Before each song, he brought out a member of his band, told the story of how they met and spoke about what this particular song means to him. He ended the set and first chapter of the show with his double-platinum, number one, heart-wrenching single, “Mercy.”

The next portion of the show began with the lead single off the most recent album “Here Tonight.” He followed it with “Used to Missing You,” “1, 2, 3 – Mississippi,” “The Ship and the Bottle,” and “Catch” before leaving the stage. He returned with a brand new, unreleased song titled “Lady” which he wrote for his 3-month old daughter. “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” he sings in the chorus. However, Young doesn’t know the future of this track yet. He said it may be exclusive for him, his family and this tour. You can watch the video of the performance below.

“What I knew was if we do The Chapters Tour, we were going to tell a story from when I started playing music, with the injury in baseball, moving to Nashville and ending up here with you guys right now; that song is a very big part of it,” he explained. “If you want to put on a tour called The Chapters Tour, you can’t just not tell the current chapter, right?”

Young thanked the crowd one last time before closing the show with his most personal track “Chapters.” DeGraw sang his part via video screen as the two harmonized the final chorus to end a memorable night at the Hammerstein Ballroom for both Young and his loving, New York fan base.

Brett Young Debuts Brand New, Unreleased Song For His Daughter, “Lady”

In honor of his 3-month-old baby girl, Brett Young debuted “Lady” during his sold-out show in New York City show on The Chapters Tour. Young prefaced his performance talking about how incredible his wife was, and the song that followed brought not only the singer-songwriter to tears, but the fans as well. Although the song is of course, for his daughter Presley, it also is a tribute to his wife Taylor.

“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 touching lyrics were accompanied by beautiful pictures of Presley and Taylor on the big screens, only enhancing the moment.

Where Are They Now? Our 2017 Artist to Watch Update

Justin Aharoni (@jaharoni) for NYCountry Swag

Here at New York Country Swag, we pride ourselves on being tastemakers, finding and championing new and up-and-coming artists and introducing our followers to the best of the best of the rising acts. Back in 2017, we named the 10 artists below in our “Artists to Watch in 2017” and we are proud to say, we know rising talent before they make it big. Check out what each of these artists has done over the past two years and what is coming up for them in 2019.

 

10. Seth Ennis- Last year, Ennis followed his debut single, “Woke Up In Nashville” and “Look at You” with the captivating “Call Your Mama,” featuring A-list superstars, Little Big Town. The singer-songwriter went on to make his TODAY Show debut with that song, taking his career to new heights. This year, Ennis also opened up for Dylan Scott on his headlining tour.

 

9. Trent Harmon- Continuing to ride the high from dropping his debut album You Got ‘Em All, Harmon released the title track to country radio last year. The song peaked in the Top 40 on Country Airplay.

 

8. High Valley- The Canadian country duo continues to take the country music world by storm. Back in April, they released their new single, “Single Man” from the forthcoming studio album. The song already reached the number two spot on the Canadian country charts. Earlier this month they released “Your Mama” and the video features real-life shots of their families. We hope 2020 brings more music from the rising duo.

 

7. Runaway June- The ladies of Runaway June have had arguably the most successful year! The trio released their debut record Blue Roses, and their radio single “Buy My Own Drinks” cracked the Top 5 on the Country charts, making history as the first song by a female trio to break into the Top 5 in a decade. Additionally, the ladies joined superstar, Carrie Underwood on her sold-out headlining tour. Check out how they expressed their excitement for their success with us here, during our interview with the girls at Taste of Country Music Festival and our most recent Swag Session below.

 

6. Brett Young- 2019 was a big year for Young, both personally and professionally. The singer-songwriter’s beautiful wife Taylor gave birth to their first child together in October, after they celebrated one year of marriage. As a recording artist, Young released his new project, The Acoustic Sessions EP, which followed the release of his Number 1 sophomore record Ticket to L.A. Fans of Young have his newly announced headlining tour to look forward to in the new year. The tour stops at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom on February 2nd.

 

5. Ryan Hurd- In 2019, Hurd focused on advancing his career as a solo artist. The talented singer-songwriter sold-out Bowery Ballroom in New York City this past January. We got to catch up with him at Taste of Country, where he shared what it’s like playing for New York fans. Hurd upped the ante by releasing both his EP Panorama and Platonic this year, including lead single “To a T.” Just recently announced, he will be headlining the Platonic Tour with Niko Moon, the tour hits NYC for a two night run on March 4th and 5th.

 

 

4. Russell Dickerson- We are proud to continue to champion the very first artist that New York Country Swag ever featured at our very first event back in January of 2016. Dickerson continues to be one of the most promising rising artists and infectious entertainers on the scene right now. This year, the singer-songwriter achieved a rare feat, as his first three singles to ever go to country radio hit the number one spot on the charts! Even better, the entertainer finally made it to the big stage at Madison Square Garden, where he opened up for Thomas Rhett on his sold-out tour and even shouted out our company, during his set!

 

3. Walker Hayes- Hayes continues to release music that he can be proud of and that his fans can always relate to. This year, he released a beautiful tribute to his wife, Laney, titled “Don’t Let Her,” headlined his own tour, and is about to release Volume 3 of 8Tracks. Check out our interview with the Swag Session alum below, as he talks about “Don’t Let Her,” and his journey.

 

2. Luke Combs- Combs has officially solidified himself as a bonafide country superstar in just a few short years. The singer recently accepted his membership into the Grand Ole Opry and released his record-breaking sophomore record What You See Is What You Get. Combs’ has had seven consecutive singles reach the top spot on County Airplay and continues to sell-out shows in arenas across the country. 2020 is shaping up to be another mega-successful year for the entertainer.

 

1. Drake White- It’s been a relatively quiet year for the White; however, that has not stopped him from bringing his unique talent to stages across the United States. The singer-songwriter captivated fans in New York City back in February when he played at Irving Plaza. He continues to be a mainstay at country music festivals as well.

Be on the lookout in the coming weeks for an update on all the artist we named to watch in 2018 and 2019, and then coming soon, our carefully-cultivated 2020 Artist to Watch list.

Brett Young Announces He Will Be Headlining The Chapters Tour

Brett Young Chapters

Get ready country fans, another artist is announcing their 2020 headlining tour! On the heels of his one year anniversary to his wife and the birth of his daughter Presley, platinum-selling country singer, Brett Young is ready to go back out on the road. The singer-songwriter is headlining THE CHAPTERS TOUR, beginning January 2020.

Announced this morning, Brett Young is a dad! The Young’s welcomed Presley Elizabeth Young on October 21st and the country music community grew a little bit bigger.

The country singer-songwriter shared in an Instagram post: “Taylor, my wife. You are a superhero. Your beauty and strength never cease to amaze me. You brought our beautiful girl into this world with a level of grace and quiet confidence that I never knew existed. I’m so impressed by and proud of you. Thank you for this incredible gift. I could not love you more! // My daughter, Baby P, you’re perfect. I am so head over heels in love with you I can’t even explain it. My world is forever changed because God gave you to me. I’m going to do so many things wrong, but I promise to never stop trying, or learning, or loving you as fiercely as is humanly possible. You are my angel, and I will never take for granted the beautiful gift God has given me in trusting me with you. I will always be your rock and your safe place. I am so proud to be your daddy and I am quite certainly the luckiest boy in the world. (Side note, no boys til you’re 30). ”
