Brett Young will be honoured with the 2018 ASCAP Country Songwriter-Artist of the Year.

Following his platinum debut album and four consecutive number 1 singles, Young will be celebrated at the 56th Annual ASCAP Country Music Awards, to be held Monday 12th November 2018 in Nashville.

Commenting on the accolade Young says, “I have been with ASCAP from the very beginning, and they have always made me feel like a part of the family, especially ASCAP’s Michael Martin and Robert Filhart. I also want to give a huge thank you to everyone in the songwriting community and in country music who welcomed me right away. I moved to Nashville to be a songwriter and it was a happy accident that I also became an artist. I’ve gotten better because I am lucky enough to get into rooms with incredible writers, and I do not take that for granted.”

Young’s chart-topping singles, In Case You Didn’t Know (triple Platinum) and Like I Loved You (Platinum) will be among the most-performed songs honoured at the awards event.
