The 2018 ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year this week garnered a pair of Billboard Music Award nominations for Top Country Album for his debut self-titled album (BMLG Records) and Top Country Song for his breakout smash hit “In Case You Didn’t Know.” Young’s first three singles have all surpassed the PLATINUM sales mark with “In Case You Didn’t Know” crossing 3X PLATINUM, making him the only debut Country artist to reach that milestone since 2014. His newest single “Mercy” is Top 20-and-rising on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart and has been streamed more than 46 million times, while the video for the song has already spent multiple weeks at No. 1 on the Vevo Top Country chart.
Brett Young’s “soothing, approachable” (New York Times) self-titled debut album became an instant success upon its 2017 release when it dominated the Top 20 on the Country Albums chart for 37 weeks, quickly reaching RIAA GOLD Certification. Delivering hit after hit, Young became one of Country music’s “most reliable new hitmakers” (Tennessean). Along with the success of his songs, his music videos have become fast hits as well, with “In Case You Didn’t Know” surpassing 180 million views alone. Drawing in a devoted fan base with his unique voice, “a gentle and seductive combination of silk and gravel” (All Access), he “doesn’t sound like anyone else in Nashville” (Omaha World Herald). Named as the only Country act to Billboard’s Top 10 New Artists, fans have flocked to hear Young’s distinct sound live, selling out every single stop on his debut headlining CALIVILLE TOUR.
