Brett Young’s fans are begging for "Mercy" — and he’s giving it to them

Big MachineBrett Young is giving his fans what they want, with the fourth -- and likely final -- release from his self-titled debut album.

“‘Mercy’ is the new single because of the amazing fan response,” the California native says. “It’s the feeling you get when someone breaks your heart but won’t let you move on. ‘Mercy’ is a plea to rip the Band Aid off, and many people can relate to that.”

For Brett, the bar is set high, since all three of his previous singles have gone to #1.

Last week, the former pitcher returned to his alma mater, the University of Mississippi, to throw out the first pitch for the Rebels’ opening weekend of baseball. Along the way, he set an attendance record at the Dixie National Rodeo in Jackson, and played multiple sold-out shows in Oxford.
