Brett Young Taps Into Cali Roots For New Video

Brett Young has released the video for his latest single “Like I Loved You.” Directed by Phillip Lopez, the heartfelt clip was filmed in Los Angeles’ scenic Laurel Canyon and captures the raw sentiment surrounding an unrequited love.

“California is home for me, and it’s where I’ve lived a lot of these lyrics, so it just feels right to shoot the ‘Like I Loved You’ video back there,” Young said. “I think just about everyone can identify with this song in some way. Most have us have had our hearts broken a time or two.”

Young has broken some impressive barriers in the video format thus far in his career: he remains in Vevo’s Top 10 Videos of 2017 (so far) with “In Case You Didn’t Know,” and with more than 90 million views, he’s the only country artist on the list joining the rankings with Zayn and Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar and DJ Khaled.

Florida Georgia Line left their mark on the Twin Cities last Saturday night (July 29) with their second sold-out headline stadium show. The concert capped off with a flurry of blockbuster hits, with The Backstreet Boys, Chris Lane, and Nelly returning to the stage joining the duo for a special encore medley of Nelly’s “Hot in Herre,” Backstreet Boys’ “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back),” and FGL and Nelly’s Diamond-certified hit “Cruise.” A colossal fireworks finale finished off the high-octane night. They’ll gear up for one more stadium concert when they swing through Chicago’s Wrigley Field for another sold out date on Aug. 12.
