Brett Young, the current ACM New Male Vocalist winner, celebrated his incredible success with friends, family and industry supporters outside of Nashville earlier this week.
The occasion marked all four of Young’s singles – Sleep Without You, In Case You Didn’t Know, Like I Loved You and Mercy – going Platinum as well as his self-titled debut album. In Case You Didn’t Know has been certified 3x Platinum since its release.
Young performed his songs and surprised those in attendance by performing his new single Here Tonight, the first from his upcoming second album.
Those in attendance included BMLG President and CEO Scott Borchetta and BMLG Records President Jimmy Harnen.
“It was surreal being back where I first signed my record deal and seeing how much has happened since then,” Young said. “It’s crazy to think just three years ago I was in the same place just getting started with my team. I wrote this album from such a vulnerable and honest place, so it means the world that these songs have connected with people the way they have. The time has flown by, and I can’t wait to share the new music with fans soon.”
As well as his sales, Young has been dominating the streaming market too. In Case You Didn’t Know has had more than 194 million views on YouTube and current single Mercy has spent multiple weeks at the top of Vevo’s Top Country chart.
He’s also picked up nominations from ACM, Billboard, Teen Choice, CMT and CMA Awards, and he sold-out every stop on his debut headline Caliville Tour.
