Since moving to Nashville from California, Brett Young swears not much has changed, besides his diet and his lack of beach time. He does, however, admit to picking up a bit of a southern vocabulary and his friends at home think it’s hilarious.

Brett talks about vocabulary changes after moving to the South. “I definitely say ‘y’all.’ I went to school for my freshman year at Ole Miss, and I noticed I started saying ‘y’all’ after about a month, and I got made fun of for it. My parents would call me, and they’d be like, ‘Do you have an accent?’ I’d be like, ‘No, I don’t have an accent.’ They’re like, ‘You just said y’all.’ I said, ‘That’s just a word!’ So anyways, when I moved to Nashville, I was like, ‘I’m not doing that this time!’ A week in, I’m already saying ‘y’all.’”

Brett is guaranteed to fine-tune his southern drawl while out on the road with Justin Moore and Lee Brice on their American Made tour.
