"It Ain't Gotta Be Love" was released as his second single and reached number 46.

A third single, "Don't Ya", was released to country radio in October 2012. It became his first single to reach the Top 20 of the Hot Country Songs chart and his first to appear on the Billboard Hot 100. His debut album, Bring You Back, was released on August 6, 2013.[9] "Don't Ya" reached number one on the Country Airplay chart the same month. The album's second single, "Beat of the Music", also reached number 1 on the same chart.
