Brett Young’s new music video will give you all the feels.

The brand new clip, which premiered just in time for Young’s high profile appearances at the CMT Music Awards and CMA Fest, is semi-autobiographical and features a sweet surprise ending.

The video follows the storyline of a college baseball player who ends up falling for a classmate. While their love story unfolds, viewers watch the star baseball player’s dreams come crashing down as he is sidelined due to an injury. The video and storyline come to a close with a goosebump-evoking ending.

The “Catch” music video was directed by Seth Kupersmith and filmed at the singer’s alma mater, the University of Mississippi.  Young co-wrote the emotional ballad alongside Ross Copperman and Ashley Gorley.

“It was a song that kinda was born out of another song,” Young explains of “Catch.” “We were in a write and somebody threw out just the word ‘catch’ as an idea, as just a word in a line of the song.”

“Ashley Gorley stood up and said he’d be right back and he walked outside and he came back and he goes, ‘Okay, we gotta book another write, cause I’ve got an idea for a song called, ‘Catch,’ where it’s a play on the word catch, and I think we can go a lot of places with this. I’m very excited,’” the California native continues. “We got back together and just got real excited about, not only the kinda tongue-in-cheek, play-on-word nature of it, but also, I think it’s kind of normally the girl that goes out with her girlfriends hoping not to meet a guy or not to be bothered by guys. We just thought it was kind of a fun twist on it – the guy going out to spend time with his buddies, and ends up seeing a girl and the rest was history.”

The song is featured on Young’s latest album, Ticket to L.A., and follows his five consecutive chart-topping hits, “In Case You Didn’t Know,” “Mercy,” “Sleep Without You,” “Like I Loved You” and “Here Tonight.”
