Brett Young Wife: The Engagement and Wedding
Country music artist Brett Charles Young and Taylor Mills learned a lot about each other over their long friendship which began in 2008 and eventual courtship. After keeping their relationship under the radar, Young shared their engagement news with fans back in February of 2018. The California native proposed to girlfriend, Taylor Mills in Oxford, Mississippi— the home of his alma mater Ole Miss. “We met a little over 10 years ago in Scottsdale while she was at ASU [Arizona State University] and dated for a little over six years. After school, she and I both moved to Los Angeles together. When I moved to Nashville, we took a break for a few years, and I wrote a lot of my first record about her,” Young shared with PEOPLE. He added, “There was never any bad blood; it was just the wrong time for us. We recently got back in touch and realized that we were both finally in the same place and knew it was right.”

He will be the actual, official ordained minister that pronounces us man and wife.” That’s right, he will get to opportunity to confirm Brett and Taylor’s union himself. “He will sign our thing, but for the majority of the ceremony, a very close friend is going to learn my dad’s ceremony. And he’s going to do the first 80 percent of it but deliver my dad’s words, personalized, of course, a little bit, but then my dad will get up and pronounce us man and wife,” Young explains.
