Nashville, TN – April 13, 2020 – Multi-PLATINUM entertainer Brett Young continues to bat a thousand as “Catch” slides into the No. One spot at Country radio this week on both the Mediabase/Country Airplay and Billboard Country charts. His sixth consecutive chart-topper via BMLG Records simultaneously strikes GOLD with RIAA certifications in the U.S. and Canada. “Respected for his distinct vocal phrasing and confessional lyrics” (Billboard), Young wrote “Catch” alongside Ashley Gorley and Ross Copperman. Delivering “a cool twist on the girls’ night out story” (E! Online), the song has over 141 million streams worldwide and follows five PLATINUM hits. Watch the music video here that traces “his unlikely path from the collegiate baseball diamond to the top of the country charts” (Sounds Like Nashville).
“I can’t believe we are celebrating another No. 1 with ‘Catch,’” Young shared. “I’m overwhelmed by the continued support I’ve received from my fans and country radio. These always feel good, but in our current situation this one feels extra special to celebrate with my family. Thank y’all SO MUCH!”
As “Catch” reaches multiple milestones, Young’s duet with Norwegian singer/songwriter Astrid S continues to heat up, offering “an honest reflection on remaining feelings for a former lover” (MusicRow).
