Released today (October 15t), hit songwriter and artist Brett Young released his latest single heading to country radio, called “You Didn’t”.

The ballad, which chronicles the unfortunate end to a relationship, shows a different side to Young, a side that fans have come to know and love of his music. During a recent interview, he explained that channeling heartbreak at this time of his life is definitely a challenge, but one that he wholeheartedly welcomes, leaning on his cowriters and thinking back to his past struggles.

Young’s signature sound adds immense depth to an already profound lyric about letting go and realizing for whatever reason, this relationship isn’t the happy ending he hoped it would be.

“It ain’t always a bad thing saving good and the last thing that I wanna be is a waste of your time, there’s nothing I could say to make you wanna stay / your heart made up its mind, I don’t want you to lie one more minute / You ain’t done nothing wrong, I’m not where you belong / Don’t let one teardrop fall, girl you think it’s your fault but it isn’t, I fell in love and you didn’t.”

Young explains in our interview that in order to not release an entire project of lullabies for his babies or love songs about his happy marriage, that he went back and pulled from past experiences to offer tracks that all of his fans at every stage of their life can relate to. “You Didn’t” certainly pulls back feelings of “Mercy” an incredible song from his debut, self-titled album, and for fans looking to dig into their emotional side, they will fall in love with Brett Young all over again.
