Young Celebrates Fourth No. 1 From Debut Album as

“Mercy” Makes Ascent to the Top

Nashville, TN – October 11, 2018 – CMA Awards New Artist of the Year
nominee Brett Young performed in front of a sold-out audience during
his first headline show at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium last
night, earning a standing ovation from the enthusiastic crowd. Young
opened the show with lead single “Here Tonight” before previewing
additional tracks from his upcoming sophomore album TICKET TO L.A, due
Dec. 7 on BMLG Records. The Caliville crooner also drew from the
collection of chart-toppers on his self-titled debut, including
PLATINUM-selling two-week No. One “Mercy.” The latter proved especially
endearing as Young invited his co-writer Sean McConnell to the stage to
collaborate on the tune once again after celebrating at a No. One party
earlier in the day at Nashville Underground. ASCAP and BMI hosted the
pair alongside industry family and friends.

“Days like today are pretty surreal,” Young shared. “There are a handful
of right of passages for a country artist, and playing the Ryman is one
of them. And on top of that, to get to celebrate four No. ones. It’s
pretty special.”

“One of country’s most consistent radio stars,” (Rolling Stone),
the smash marks Young’s fourth consecutive No. one, following “Sleep
Without You” (PLATINUM), “In Case You Didn’t Know” (3X PLATINUM) and
“Like I Loved You” (PLATINUM).
 The feat makes him the only debut Country artist to earn four chart-toppers since 2014.

The ACM Awards New Male Vocalist of the Year will continue to bring his “personality and husky vocals,” (Providence Journal) to fans across the country on his headlining CMT ON TOUR: HERE TONIGHT in
November, following his current run on Thomas Rhett’s LIFE CHANGES
TOUR. Young has built a dedicated fanbase since the first glimpse of
breathtaking vulnerability with his 2016 debut, which earned RIAA
PLATINUM certification and dominated the Top 20 on the Country Albums
chart for 37 weeks. He also distinguished himself with “In Case You
Didn’t Know” as the first debut Country artist since 2014 to garner 3X
PLATINUM certification. The chart-topper’s official music video has
surpassed 200 million views, while Young was the only artist of 2017
with two efforts listed on VEVO’s Top Country Videos list. His music has
been streamed more than 1 billion times (Nielsen Music Connect). For
