Lady Antebellum is bringing their “You Look Good World Tour” to the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, June 3rd, with special guests Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young, and for the Orange County native, it means his career has come full circle.
“That was a really, really exciting phone call to get,” Brett says in a statement from his label, referring to the invitation to tour with Lady A. “When I first started kind of messing with the idea of taking what I did as a singer songwriter and calling it country music, which, you know is a funny thing anyways because singer songwriters – that isn’t a genre as much as we want to call it that.
“And so the first thing I started doing was, ‘Well, I should put out some covers of some country music,’ because that’s all I listened to, and people are used to hearing me and my guitar. I’m going to show them this is who I am and the first like two or three were Lady Antebellum covers,” he continues.
“And so, kind of a full circle thing, you know. Since then Charles [Kelley], his brother Josh [Kelley] is somebody that I’ve gotten to know and started to write with. And I played a charity last year that Hillary Scott’s very involved with and I’ve slowly gotten to know them personally.
“So to actually get to now go out and be on the road and share the stage with them, and then obviously it goes without saying that Kelsea [Ballerini] is on fire right now. And so she’s got a great young fan base and so it’ll be really fun to get to go share my music in front of them, and like I said, just get to know everybody.”
