Brett Young is one of country music’s fastest rising stars, rapidly gaining fans and acclaim with his honest lyrics and poignant blend of contemporary pop and modern country music. Said to be “destined for mass appeal” by Rolling Stone Country, Young released his Gold-certified, self-titled, debut album in February of 2017, which included the hit single “Like I Loved You,” as well as his back-to-back No. 1 hits, and Platinum-certified tracks, “Sleep Without You” and “In Case You Didn’t Know,” the latter having now reached the 2X-Platinum sales mark.

With over 185-million views, Young’s music video for “In Case You Didn’t Know” was No. 1 on Vevo’s Country Chart for six consecutive weeks and was nominated for “Breakthrough Video of the Year” at the 2017 CMT Music Awards. The song was additionally nominated as “Choice Country Song” by the Teen Choice Awards and more recently as a “Top Country Song” at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, where Young was also nominated for “Top Country Album.”

Young was nominated as the “New Male Vocalist of the Year” for the Academy of Country Music Awards and for “New Artist of the Year” at the Country Music Association Awards in 2017. He also garnered two Association of Independent Music Publisher (AIMP) Award nods and was honored at the 2017 ASCAP Country Music Awards, all for his hit single “Sleep Without You.”
