The GOLD-certified album became an instant success, leading to breakout hit “In Case You Didn’t Know” being listed in 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 debut in the Top 50 of their all-genre Top Thumb Hundred list. The song’s official music video was greeted with matched enthusiasm, surpassing 160 million+ views since its release and landing among Vevo’s top all-genre videos of 2017. Young is also the only artist to have two videos on Vevo’s Top Country Videos chart for 2017.

Young launched his own headlining CALIVILLE TOUR in October, selling out every stop following runs with Country’s hottest including Lady Antebellum, Luke Bryan and Thomas Rhett. His momentum continued throughout 2017, landing on multiple Billboard Year End charts and being the only Country talent on the Top New Artists. He also took the No. 2 spot on the Year End Hot Country Songs, Country Digital Songs and Country Streaming Songs charts. ASCAP recognized his “quintessential breakout year,” honoring Young for one of the Most Played Songs of the Year with “Sleep Without You.” Young was named a Ticketmaster New Favorite Artist of 2017, Rare Country’s Best New Artist and was Shazam’s only Country act included on their Emerging Artists of 2017 list.

CMA New Artist of the Year nominee Brett Young is proving he’s “in the fast lane to becoming one of country’s breakout stars” (Washington Post) as his 2017 self-titled debut album rapidly soared to RIAA GOLD status. Additionally, his “catchy” (PEOPLE) debut single “Sleep Without You” has been certified PLATINUM, and his smash hit “In Case You Didn’t Know” has reached 2X PLATINUM status. Young was honored for the three achievements Saturday (9/9) at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on the last stop of Lady Antebellum’s YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR when Big Machine Label Group President/CEO Scott Borchetta and EVP Big Machine Label Group/BMLG Records President Jimmy Harnen surprised the rising superstar on-stage during his set with a plaque to commemorate. 


“I’m just doing what I love, so it’s cool to see this music mean something to other people too,” Young said. “I’m so honored and thankful for the support of my fans, my team and Country radio for making all of it possible.” 

Young’s “confessional, soulful country gems” (Entertainment Weekly) are proving to resonate with listeners as “In Case You Didn’t Know” instantly soared up the charts, earning the title of the first Country song released in 2017 to hit PLATINUM status. The song thrived in the video format as well, landing a place in Vevo’s Top 10 Videos of 2017 (so far), surpassing 100 million views, joining the rankings with Zayn and Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar and DJ Khaled.

“Ace Songwriter” (Entertainment Weekly) Brett Young’s GOLD-certified self-titled debut continues to make a big impression. His latest offering “Like I Loved You” is quickly rising up the radio charts as it enters the Top 30 on the Billboard and Mediabase Country Airplay charts this week. The single follows back-to-back No. 1 smashes, including the PLATINUM-certified “Sleep Without You” and 2X PLATINUM “In Case You Didn’t Know. “Young is quickly becoming one of country music’s most reliable new hit makers…” (The Tennessean) and the industry is noticing with ACM Award, People’s Choice Award, CMT Music Awards, CMA Award and AIMP Award nominations. Young recently wrapped his run on Lady Antebellum’s YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR and will be kicking off his headline CALIVILLE TOUR next month with breakout female vocalist Carly Pearce.

Lady Antebellum Brings The House Down In Nashville

In what was the last stop of the North American leg of the YOU LOOK GOOD world tour, Lady Antebellum brought the house down along with tourmates, Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young.

Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena held a capacity crowd that was dancing and singing along with all 3 acts all night long.  As Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott put it: “It’s been two years since we took this stage” with Charles Kelley chiming in that they were prepared to “leave it all out on the stage”.  They did just that.  After taking a break to work on some special projects they wanted to do, Lady Antebellum is back and better than ever.

Brett Young opened the night with a great performance to an appreciative crowd.  Midway through, he was presented with a multi-platinum achievement plaque by record label president, Scott Borchetta, along with other members of his team for his debut album and singles.  This is only the start of what is sure to be a successful career from the handsome, tall tunesmith.

Next, Kelsea Ballerini took the stage in an energetic performance entertaining the crowd with hits from her debut album and sprinkling in a few new tunes from her upcoming release.  Vibrant as ever, we look forward to hearing more from the always adorable artist who took the country world by storm right out of the gates and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon, thankfully.

Finally, Lady Antebellum closed out the show with singing hits from their first album all the way through their current release.  They were enthusiastic and better than ever sharing how happy they were to be doing what they love for so many years in a heartfelt moment as they slowed it down a bit singing a few songs acoustically giving the band a break.  One of my favorites from that segment was their rendition of Shania Twain’s classic hit,“Still The One”.

“Without getting too nostalgic, this is a dream come true for us to close out this tour in Nashville,” said Charles Kelley. “For over ten years we have walked this journey with everyone here tonight and we couldn’t feel more blessed. Thank you to everyone who helped us make this tour the most unforgettable journey yet.”

My favorite moment of the night is when they brought out the full horn section from Nashville School of Arts to join their 2 incredible horn players that usually tour with Justin Timberlake, but joined them while he is on a break from touring.  They finished off their single from the current album, “You Look Good”, in stellar fashion creating my favorite memory from the evening.  Also loved the opening with just the two added horn players energizing and hyping the crowd on stage alone for a couple of minutes serving as the intro of the always incredible Lady Antebellum to enter the arena’s huge stage.  They poured their hearts out all night long and had a spectacular conclusion with an encore of “Bartender” transitioning into their mega crossover hit, “Need You Now”, and leaving the stage to a standing ovation from a very appreciative crowd.

They succeeded in accomplishing what they sought out to do, leaving it all out on the stage in a stellar performance lasting nearly two hours on a beautiful, cool, crisp fall-like evening in downtown Nashville.

Thanks, Lady Antebellum, for adding so much to the country genre with your harmonious sounds and constantly bringing your fans something fresh and new with each release for over 10 years. From their humble start playing at 3rd & Lindsley to packing arenas around the world, we hope to continue hearing from them for many more years to come. They are a must-see concert whenever they come to town.
