Brett Young has used his popular voice to pay homage to one of his alma maters.

Young, the former Ole Miss pitcher turned country music star, recently released a track on iTunes and other digital platforms exclusively dedicated to Ole Miss. The song, titled “Hell Yeah, Damn Right (Ole Miss Tribute),” is inspired by the school’s popular game-day chant.

“My time at Ole Miss was so much fun and so impactful,” Young told “I wanted to write a song to commemorate the game-day experience in Oxford and in the Grove.”

Young’s music career has taken off after an elbow injury ended his playing days prematurely. The CMA New Artist of the Year nominee rose to the top of America’s Music Charts in December with the hit “Sleep Without You” while his latest hit, “Like I Loved You,” recently moved into the top 100 on the Billboard music chart.

The California native is set to begin his debut CALIVILLE tour Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Young pitched for the Rebels as a freshman in 2000, notching two wins and two saves that season, before transferring to Fresno State.
