Brett Young Gets Inked To Celebrate “Sleep Without You” No. 1
What better way to commemorate a No. 1 song than with a tattoo? At least that’s how Brett Young feels about it.
The fast-rising star has racked up two No. 1 songs so far, including “Sleep Without You.” It was his first chart-topper, and he immediately went out and had it memorialized in ink. He’s already got quite a tattoo collection, however, and doesn’t plan to celebrate all No. 1s like that. “I’m like power of positive thinking guy and one of my favorite sports quotes is – you know, when people celebrate too much after they do something good – I think it was Bear Bryant who said, ‘Behave as if you’re going to do it again.'” Brett says through his record label. “Like stop that, you know? And so I kind of want to put that into the universe that there are going to be too many to fit, hopefully. But also the first one is the special one.”
“Sleep Without You”
Really special, in fact. “You bleed for your first record and your songs are like your babies and ‘Sleep Without You’ was such a special song because it was the one that I got introduced to the world with and it did so well,” Brett continues. “And so I put this on here to commemorate the fact that 14 years of really hard work and believing in something can actually work out if you stick with it.”
Brett has since seen “In Case You Didn’t Know” reach No. 1. No word on a tattoo for that one. Stay up on all things Brett here.
