NASHVILLE, TN (September 24, 2021) – Multi-PLATINUM entertainer Brett Young brightens the holiday season, unwrapping his first-ever Christmas album — Brett Young & Friends Sing The Christmas Classics (BMLG Records) — on October 22. Enlisting an all-star lineup of collaborators including Colbie Caillat, Sam Fischer, Dann Huff, Darius Rucker, Maddie & Tae, Chris Tomlin and Phil Wickham, the eight-song collection is available for pre-order here with “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” ft. Sam Fischer out today. Later this year, Young will bring the album’s soulful stylings and must-see duets to television with “CMT Crossroads Christmas: Brett Young & Friends.” More details will be announced in the coming weeks.
Aptly titled, these yule-tide pairings find Young trading stirring harmonies and celebrating the warmth of the holiday season with fresh takes on traditional songs. Donning “the smoothest vocals in the business” (Nashville Lifestyles), Young and producer Noah Needleman tapped into a suave, jazzy production throughout the project after getting in the spirit with Young’s “Silver Bells” last year.
“I’ve always known that I wanted to make a Christmas album one day, it was just a matter of figuring out how I could do something a little bit different. We tapped into an old school, lo-fi sound with ‘Silver Bells,’ and knew we had the blueprint for a full album. It means the world that so many incredible artists who I respect were open to singing with me on the project… we don’t take the title ‘Brett Young and Friends’ lightly!”

Young has captured the hearts of fans everywhere through his honest lyrics and West Coast-meets-Southern sound, aptly dubbed “Caliville” style. With an undeniable string of hits and two albums defined by a transcendent romantic spark, he has cemented his status as Country’s master over matters of the heart. The star broadened his emotional scope on WEEKENDS LOOK A LITTLE DIFFERENT THESE DAYS following his GOLD-certified sophomore effort TICKET TO L.A., which debuted atop the Billboard Country Albums chart. Young’s PLATINUM self-titled debut dominated the Top 20 on the Country Albums chart for 37 weeks and has contributed to 5.5 billion streams globally. He was named ASCAP’s 2018 Country Songwriter-Artist of the Year for his “melodic craftsmanship” (Billboard) and has also garnered nominations from ACM, Billboard, Teen Choice, CMT and CMA Awards. Racking seven consecutive chart-toppers, Rolling Stone deemed Young “one of country’s most consistent radio stars.”
