Hot new country artist Brett Young headed home to the West Coast to film the music video for his Republic Nashville debut single, “Sleep Without You.”
Shot in Malibu, CA with Shane Drake as director, the clip features Young trying to fight his insomnia while his love interest, Miss USA 2015 Olivia Jordan, enjoys a night out with friends.
“What I like about Shane’s treatment is that I really wanted the video to follow the story of the song,” said Young. “All of the elements were very authentic, and I felt like I could really be myself. It didn’t hurt having the sunshine and ocean breeze as a nice reminder of home either.”
“Brett seemed like a seasoned artist shooting this video and knew exactly what he was doing,” added Drake. “That is not always the case with new artists so it was a very easy day.”
“Sleep Without You” is from Young’s six-song self-titled EP. His songs have appeared on shows like Chrisley Knows Best (USA), Real World (MTV) and Kourtney and Kim Take New York (E!).
