It would just be too easy (and shame­fully lazy jour­nal­ism) to call coun­try hot­tie Brett Young the male Tay­lor Swift… but be­cause we’re shame­less we’re go­ing to do it any­way. A vis­i­tor to Aus­tralia’s shores last year to mu­cho ac­claim, this blond babe re­cently be­came en­gaged so there’s plenty of het­ero-love be­ing sung about on his sec­ond al­bum, but it’s more “aw shucks” sweet than an­noy­ing. The ti­tle track even gives coun­try mu­sic a fresh lick and a grit­tier ur­ban edge. “A big part of my life has be­come fly­ing home to Los An­ge­les,” Brett de­clares. While we love his mu­sic, the voice, and, yes, ad­mit­tedly, his looks, the only thing we’re re­ally sur­prised about is that Tay­lor Swift hasn’t dated him. In­stead, he’s en­gaged to an­other girl called Tay­lor. Coun­try singers, eh?
