Between 2013 and 2016, the artist didn’t release and work. He seemed to study new styles, analyze music, and look to change his personal approach.
In February 2016, Young recorded a promotional single “Sleep Without You”, which later became a part of his debut LP. The single was a huge hit. It reached the 2nd spot on Country Airplay, the 3rd spot on Hot Country Songs, and the 7th spot on Canadian Country Chart. The song was commercially successful.

In January 2017, Young made his fans happy by releasing another hit. The song "In Case You Didn't Know" reached top spots on American and Canadian Country Song charts. It sold more than a million copies. At that time, many event organizers tried to book Brett Young, but it wasn’t easy. In July, the singer released another popular song "Like I Loved You". The single earned a platinum status from RIAA.
All the above-mentioned singles were featured in Brett’s debut studio album Brett Young. Initially, in 2016, the artist released an EP with the same name, but it didn’t become commercially successful. In order to boost the profits, the singer added songs, and the LP came out in 2017.
The LP earned high scores from the critics. It reached the 2nd spot on Hot Country Songs, climbed the 18th position on Billboard 200, and settled on the 26th spot of Canadian Albums Chart. The album featured such hits as "Close Enough", "Olivia Mae", "Left Side of Leavin'", "Makin' Me Say", "Beautiful Believer", "You Ain't Here to Kiss Me", "Memory Won't Let Me", "Back on the Wagon", and "Mercy".
