Brett Young Features Wife Taylor in New Heartbreaking Music Video

Brett Young just released the heartbreaking new video for his single “You Didn’t.”

Although Brett described the song as a “painful journey of unrequited love,” he cast his real life wife Taylor as the lead in the music video.

Brett said in a conversation on YouTube with the video’s director, Seth Kupersmith, that he requested Taylor to be cast because he was too uncomfortable working with anyone else.

“The first video Seth and I did together was ‘Mercy,’” Young said. “We had an incredibly talented actress. She killed it. The video was beautiful. And I walked away feeling uncomfortable. I’m not an actor. I’m a singer-songwriter and a musician, and I didn’t like how it felt. I went to Seth, and I said, ‘Dude, from now on, if I’m going to be the lead actor, which I’m not even an actor, but if I’m going to be that, it’s always going to be my wife. Otherwise, we have to hire another couple.’”

“It’s really fun to act with Taylor,” Young said. “Neither of us are actors. She did a good job. She did a really good job. I watched that back, and I was like, ‘Dang!’”
