Brett Young’s “soothing, approachable” (New York Times) self-titled debut album (BMLG Records) became an instant success upon its 2017 release, quickly earning GOLD-certification as Young took “country radio by storm” (Billboard). All three of the album’s singles became fast hits, with his lead single “Sleep Without You” climbing to the top of the charts. His follow up smash hit “In Case You Didn’t Know” landed amongst The New York Times 54 Best Songs of 2017, touted as “one of this year’s most impressive pop songs.” Amazon Music named the track as the Top Country Song of 2017 while Pandora listeners also recognized Young’s hit in the Top 50 of their all-genre Top Thumb Hundred list. The song’s official music video was greeted with matched enthusiasm, surpassing 165 million+ views since its release, landing among Vevo’s top all-genre videos of 2017. Young’s latest single “Like I Loved You” soared to the top of the charts, holding the No. 1 spot for three weeks. Fans can catch Young on Thomas Rhett’s LIFE CHANGES TOUR 2018 this spring, following Young’s recent headlining CALIVILLE Tour, which sold out every stop.
