From humble beginnings and lots of hard labor, Young has fought hard and fought long to launch his musical career. Through it all the one thing Young maintained was his love for country and his natural ability to create and perform quality music. Makin’ a Life showcases Young’s talent and displays it proudly in the form of a great country album. The album opens up with the single “Carnival Ride,” which is one of my favorites. I love the tempo and Young’s vocal performance on this track. If you have ever been in love, you know that a “Carnival Ride” is the perfect analogy for just that.” - Dutch Bickell

In memory of Adam T. Wallington This song is a co-write with a dear friend of mine, Adam Wallington. We initially wrote it in 1998 and re-visited it in 2014. We had always planned to work on it more in order to bring it a more "country" feel but unfortunately, in 2020 Adam was diagnosed with ALS. He passed away January 24th 2021 at the age of 46. I am releasing the song, mastered as is, in memory of an incredibly talented and dear friend; the world lost a good one and he'll be greatly missed. Till we meet again my friend. “Meow” R.I.P.
