We really need to thank Brett Young’s parents because apparently, if it weren’t for them, we wouldn’t have some of our favorite songs right now! His parents have been happily married for 37 years, and their solid relationship has influenced his songwriting. He says he’s able to write love songs that don’t sound cheesy because they’re from a real place. – Songwriters are told to write what they know, so if you hear Brett Youngsing about love and respect and all that kind of boring stuff, blame his parents. They’ve been blissfully married for 37 years, and it’s seeped into his music.
Quote, “My parents’ example of a loving, caring relationship affected my songwriting and allowed me to write love songs that people connect to without sounding cheesy, because they’re coming from a real place, something that I saw growing up.”
And that’s just the beginning. Check this out. He says, quote, “I’ve never heard them raise their voice to each other. I’ve never seen my dad come home from work and not walk straight to my mom and ask her about her day.
“I had the best example set by my parents for what a couple can, and should be.”
