Unstoppable Hot Streak Continues as Multi-Platinum Artist Commemorates One Year Anniversary of Gold Self-Titled Debut Album
It has only been one year since Brett Young emerged on the Country music scene with the release of his debut self-titled album, but Young has been â€œin the fast lane to become one of countryâ€™s breakout starsâ€Â (Washington Post)Â ever since, quickly setting himself apart from the pack as he continues to garner unprecedented accolades for a debut artist. One of only three acts within the genre to earn GOLD-certification for an album released last year, Young has taken “country radio by stormâ€Â (Billboard), consistently skyrocketing to the top of the charts, with three consecutive No. 1 hits. Yesterday, at Nashville Underground, Young celebrated his latest chart-topping hit â€œLike I Loved You,â€ which he wrote alongside Jesse Lee.
Youngâ€™s breakout smash â€œIn Case You Didnâ€™t Knowâ€ has reached 3X PLATINUM status, making him the only debut Country artist since 2014 to earn the honor and the only new Country act to have a song released in 2017 go MULTI-PLATINUM. The hitâ€™s official music video surpassed 170 million views – more than any debut Country artist, and Young was the only artist with two videos onÂ VEVOâ€™sÂ Top Country Videos of 2017. Drawing in a devoted fan base with his unique voice, “a gentle and seductive combination of silk and gravelâ€Â (All Access), he â€œdoesnâ€™t sound like anyone else in Nashvilleâ€Â (Omaha World Herald). Named as the only Country act toÂ Billboardâ€™sÂ Top 10 New Artists, fans have flocked to hear Young’s distinct sound live, selling out every single stop on his debut headlining CALIVILLE TOUR.
