NASHVILLE, TN – January 10, 2018 – Multi-PLATINUM selling Brett Young will perform his No. 1, GOLD-certified hit “Like I Loved You” tomorrow morning on Good Morning America at 7:00am local time.

The current No. 1 on Shazam’s Country Chart, Marie Claire named “Like I Loved You” as the top Country Song of 2017 Worth Listening To. The trajectory follows his previous chart-toppers – PLATINUM-selling lead single “Sleep Without You” and 2X PLATINUM smash “In Case You Didn’t Know,” the first Country song released in 2017 to reach PLATINUM-certification status and one of only two Country songs released last year to earn the honor.
A nod to Young’s skyrocketing career, he earned a 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards nomination today for Best New Country Artist.
