Traditions are one of the most fun things about Thanksgiving, and for Brett Young, the Thanksgiving meal isn't complete without one particular side dish.

“For Thanksgiving, aside from the turkey, my thing – and it’s a normal thing to everybody but for whatever reason it’s a staple at Thanksgiving for me – and everybody has gravy, but it’s my mom’s homemade gravy," he shares in a statement from his label. "For whatever reason, I don’t know if it’s a little bit saltier than most, but it’s exactly the same every year for my whole life for as long as I can remember.

"And that’s always the biggest disappointment if I go somewhere where the gravy is so different that it doesn’t feel, smell, or taste like Thanksgiving. And so I think it’s mom’s homemade gravy.”

With a new little girl in the house (just a couple months old!), this will be the first Thanksgiving as parents for Brett and his wife.
