Nashville, TN – September 11, 2017 – CMA New Artist of the Year nominee Brett Young is proving he’s “in the fast lane to becoming one of country’s breakout stars” (Washington Post) as his 2017 self-titled debut album rapidly soared to RIAA GOLD status. Additionally, his “catchy” (PEOPLE)
debut single “Sleep Without You” has been certified PLATINUM, and his
smash hit “In Case You Didn’t Know” has reached 2X PLATINUM status.
Young was honored for the three achievements Saturday (9/9) at
Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on the last stop of Lady Antebellum’s YOU
LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR when Big Machine Label Group President/CEO Scott
Borchetta and EVP Big Machine Label Group/BMLG Records President Jimmy
Harnen surprised the rising superstar on-stage during his set with a
plaque to commemorate. 

“I’m just doing
what I love, so it’s cool to see this music mean something to other
people too,” Young said. “I’m so honored and thankful for the support of
my fans, my team and Country radio for making all of it possible.” 

Young’s “confessional, soulful country gems” (Entertainment Weekly)
are proving to resonate with listeners as “In Case You Didn’t Know”
instantly soared up the charts, earning the title of the first Country
song released in 2017 to hit PLATINUM status. The song thrived in the
video format as well, landing a place in Vevo’s Top 10 Videos of 2017
(so far), surpassing 100 million views, joining the rankings with Zayn
and Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar and DJ Khaled.

“Ace Songwriter” (Entertainment Weekly) Brett
Young’s GOLD-certified self-titled debut continues to make a big

Country Airplay charts this week. The single follows back-to-back No. 1
