Over the last few years, Brett has climbed his way up in the country community. Even though he's one of the biggest names on the charts right now, that doesn't mean he doesn't get star struck anymore! "I collaborated with Boyz II Men earlier this year for 'CMT Crossroads' and again on the CMT Awards, which were such bucket list moments.

Besides the upcoming EP, Brett delivered an encore performance of his hit song "Catch" for Comcast’s Xfinity TV customers that is available only on Xfinity On Demand.
