(AUDIO) BRETT YOUNG WOULD LOVE TO SHARE THE UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE OF MUSIC WITH OUR TROOPS AROUND THE WORLD

With Memorial Day coming up on Monday, I talked to Brett Young about the respect and appreciation he has for the men and women of the military who serve our country, and although he hasn’t had a chance to go overseas and play a USO show or shows for our troops yet, he would definitely welcome the opportunity because he knows how powerful music can be in people’s lives.  Brett who has performed at Camp Lejeune before, says, “I think for me, my heart is that if I ever was given the opportunity to actually go overseas and do something like that, that would be incredible as well.”

Brett would love the opportunity to bring music to our troops because he says, “You forget how important music is for people.  It’s one of those constants that no matter what you’re doing in your life, whether you’re deployed or whether you’re serving here, you can have a crazy life and music is still music to everybody. Everybody has a relationship to music.  And so we haven’t gotten to do as much as I’d like to in terms of that yet but I know there are talks about doing a little traveling, getting out and playing music for the troops. I would love to do that.”

In the meantime, Brett is out on the road this spring with Thomas Rhett on the Life Changes Tour, getting to share his latest single, “Mercy,” and other music off his self-titled debut album, with thousands of country music fans across the country.

Brett Young – Memorial Day  :38

“We did get the opportunity this last year on Fourth of July to go to Camp Lejuene and play a Fourth of July show and it’s always really special when you get to do something like that. I think for me, my heart is that if I ever was given the opportunity to actually go overseas and do something like that, that would be incredible as well. But I think regardless, you forget how important music is for people.  It’s one of those constants that no matter what you’re doing in your life, whether you’re deployed or whether you’re serving here, you can have a crazy life and music is still music to everybody. Everybody has a relationship to music.  And so we haven’t gotten to do as much as I’d like to in terms of that yet but I know there are talks about doing a little traveling, getting out and playing music for the troops. I would love to do that.”
