A singer and songwriter whose music balances the sophistication of contemporary pop with the emotional palette of modern country, Brett Young was born and raised in Orange County, California, and was a teenager when he first developed a love for music by learning to play guitar. In the late '90s, Young was a student at Costa Mesa's Calvary Chapel High School, and he volunteered to help the school's worship leader with performances on Friday mornings. One Friday, the music leader was out of town, and Young ended up taking his place. The experience convinced Young he had what it took to perform in front of an audience, but even as his confidence grew, his first loyalty was to sports. Young was a star pitcher on Calvary Chapel High's baseball team, and in his senior year he helped the team achieve a 28-1 record and took them to the CIF championships, chalking up 130 strikeouts and a 0.90 ERA that season.
