Brett Young’s latest single “Mercy” was his third song to reach number one. He’s a bit surprised it became such a hit because most artists don’t put a ballad out in the summer time.
“We did that because the response we were getting from this song every time we played it live …It was just overwhelming,” he says. “The response it got it kind of took all logic out of the equation because it was such a no brainer.”
Believe it or not, “Mercy” almost didn’t make it on the record, because of how late Brett wrote it, but he’s happy it was included. He explains, “I think having that one song that really hurts people’s feelings and breaks people’s hearts is a fun and important one to have on every record.”
