ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year Brett Young celebrated
his ongoing PLATINUM success with friends, family and industry
supporters including BMLG President and CEO Scott Borchetta and BMLG
Records President Jimmy Harnen last night just outside of Nashville. The
hitmaker added his debut self-titled album and Top 5-and-rising single
“Mercy” to a bolstering list of accolades, both crossing the 1 million
mark in total consumption. The PLATINUM milestones follow Young’s first
three singles: “Sleep Without You” (PLATINUM), “In Case You Didn’t Know”
(3X PLATINUM) and “Like I Loved You” (PLATINUM). Brett performed
the compelling tunes and offered a surprise preview of the first single
off his upcoming sophomore album, “Here Tonight,” for his special

“It was surreal being back where I first
signed my record deal and seeing how much has happened since then,”
Young said. “It’s crazy to think just three years ago I was in the same
place just getting started with my team. I wrote this album from such a
vulnerable and honest place, so it means the world that these songs have
connected with people the way they have. The time has flown by, and I
can’t wait to share the new music with fans soon.”

Brett Young’s “soothing, approachable” (New York Times) self-titled
debut album became an instant success upon its release in 2017,
dominating the Top 20 on the Country Albums chart for 37 weeks, quickly
reaching RIAA PLATINUM Certification. Delivering four consecutive hits,
Young became one of Country music’s new class of hitmakers as each
single climbed to the top of the charts. Along with the success of his
songs, Young’s music videos have added steam with “In Case You Didn’t
Know” surpassing 194 million views and “Mercy” spending multiple weeks
atop Vevo’s Top Country chart. Drawing in a devoted fan base with his
unique voice that is “a gentle and seductive combination of silk and
gravel” (All Access), Young has carved out his
own lane in both performance delivery and songwriting. Named as the
only Country act on Billboard’s Top 10 New Artists, Young continues to
impress the genre and beyond with nominations from the ACM, Billboard,
Teen Choice, CMT and CMA Awards. Above the industry successes, his
relationship with fans found Young selling out every single stop on his
debut headlining CALIVILLE TOUR and earning new followers on the road
with Thomas Rhett’s LIFE CHANGES TOUR 2018. For additional information,
