Brett Young Celebrates Fourth No. 1 From Debut Album

CMA Awards New Artist of the Year nominee Brett Young performed in front of a sold-out audience during his first headline show at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium last night, earning a standing ovation from the enthusiastic crowd. Young opened the show with lead single “Here Tonight” before previewing additional tracks from his upcoming sophomore album TICKET TO L.A, due Dec. 7 on BMLG Records. The Caliville crooner also drew from the collection of chart-toppers on his self-titled debut, including PLATINUM-selling two-week No. One “Mercy.” The latter proved especially endearing as Young invited his co-writer Sean McConnell to the stage to collaborate on the tune once again after celebrating at a No. One party earlier in the day at Nashville Underground. ASCAP and BMI hosted the pair alongside industry family and friends.

“Days like today are pretty surreal,” Young shared. “There are a handful of right of passages for a country artist, and playing the Ryman is one of them. And on top of that, to get to celebrate four No. ones. It’s pretty special.”
