Brett Young has a huge smash on his hands with his latest single, "Here Tonight," but he admits that at first, after writing the song with Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum, he wasn't sure if he should be the one to record it. Of course, he eventually changed his mind.

“I wasn’t sure this one was mine," he confesses in a statement from his label. "And then Charles sang the demo vocal on it and listening back to him sing it, I was A) really intimidated to try to sing it now because Charles is such a great singer but B) listening to it, it really did feel like me and I thought I did want it for my record.

"And so, it was the beginning of a really fun thing with Charles. We’ve written together since. It was our first one, and it made the record, and ended up being the first single, so it was pretty fun.”
