NASHVILLE, TN - October 23, 2017 - CMA New Artist of the Year Nominee Brett Young played back-to-back sold-out shows over the weekend in Sioux City, MO and Kansas City, MO, following the recent launch of his debut headlining CALIVILLE Tour, which kicked off at a sold-out stop in Charlottesville VA (10/14). The “Ace Songwriter” (Entertainment Weekly) entertained the packed audiences with songs from his self-titled debut (BMLG Records), which highlights his "melodic craftsmanship” (Billboard) with No. One hits, PLATINUM Certified “Sleep Without You” and 2X PLATINUM selling “In Case You Didn’t Know,” “one of this year’s most impressive pop songs” (New York Times), along with the recently-released fast-rising single "Like I Loved You."

"These first few shows have been an absolute blast, and they have me so excited for every single stop on this tour," Young said. "The fans are bringing such an incredible energy."

Young also recently joined one of his musical inspirations Gavin Degraw on stage, surprising concert goers at Degraw's tour stop in Minneapolis.

The CALIVILLE TOUR features breakout singer/songwriter Carly Pearce and follows Young's run on Lady Antebellum's YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR, drawing "his share of screams" (The Post Standard) as fans "(sing) along to almost every word" (The Plain Dealer).

Brett Young’s GOLD-certified “soothing, approachable self-titled debut album” (New York Times) (BMLG Records) continues to make a big impression as only one of two Country artists to hit that milestone with albums released this year. His latest offering "Like I Loved You" is quickly rising at Country radio as it recently entered the Top 15 on the Billboard and Mediabase Country Airplay charts. The single follows back-to-back No. 1 smashes, including the PLATINUM-certified “Sleep Without You” and 2X PLATINUM “In Case You Didn’t Know. "Young is quickly becoming one of country music’s most reliable new hit makers...” (The Tennessean) and the industry is noticing with ACM Award, Teen Choice Award, CMT Music Awards, CMA Award and AIMP Award nominations. Breaking barriers in the video format as well, he landed in Vevo’s Top 10 Videos of 2017 (so far) with “In Case You Didn’t Know,” surpassing 135 million views and joining the rankings with Zayn and Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar and DJ Khaled. As Billboard notes, “... with a full album's worth of music for fans to divulge -- and an opening slot on Lady A's tour all summer -- his impact goes beyond the singles."Fans and critics are also raving about his live show, with The New York Times saying "... Brett Young renders deep feelings with thick polish."

Kentucky native Carly Pearce has never known a moment that Country music wasn’t her destined path, and as the only solo female currently in the Top 5 at Country radio with blockbuster ballad “Every Little Thing,” her dreams are coming to fruition. Life experiences and tenacious spirit chronicle her 13-track debut album EVERY LITTLE THING, out now on Big Machine Records, with sought-after producer/songwriter busbee (Katy Perry, Keith Urban, Maren Morris, Kelly Clarkson), emphasizing Carly’s textured vocals and emotive songwriting prowess. The CMT Next Women of Country alum has also been named an Artist to Watch across multiple platforms – Youtube, Rolling Stone Country, The Huffington Post, Country Living, Sounds Like Nashville, The Boot, Whiskey Riff and One Country – and landed prominent features in The Washington Post, Billboard and People. Blazing her own trail from the time she was 11 and performing in a Bluegrass band, Carly has been invited to play the Grand Ole Opry nearly 40 times, joined bills with notable artists such as Martina McBride, Kelsea Ballerini, Kip Moore, Hunter Hayes, Lucy Hale and recently opened for Eric Church on his HOLDIN’ MY OWN TOUR.
