First Two Singles Sell Over 1 Million
Scores Only Country Single of 2017 to Reach This Certification Milestone
Double Nominee for AIMP Nashville Awards
NASHVILLE, TN (April 26, 2017) – Brett Young is pulling away from the pack as one of the most successful artists of the year. RIAA officially announces GOLD-certification of the first two singles from his debut album, further proving fans’ unwavering support for the ACM-nominated singer/songwriter. His No. 1 hit “Sleep Without You” and the Top 10-and-rising “In Case You Didn’t Know” have sold over one million tracks total. The latter becomes the only Country release of 2017 to reach this impressive sales milestone, listed alongside Ed Sheeran, Big Sean, Future, Migos and The Chainsmokers topping other genres. Brett celebrated the news while on the road with Justin Moore and Lee Brice for the AMERICAN MADE TOUR.
“My fans are amazing,” exclaimed Brett. “To have this success with my debut project is just unreal. Writing these songs was very therapeutic for me and to have them connect the way they do is humbling.”
Brett was also recently honored with two Association of Independent Music Publishers (AIMP) Nashville Award nominations. The Big Machine Music songwriter is nominated for Artist/Songwriter of the Year and Song of the Year for “Sleep Without You.” This is an amazing feat for the talent who continues to craft songs for himself and other artists, including the current single “Love Again” for Nash Next winner Todd O’Neil.
The momentum continues for “In Case You Didn’t Know,” taking the No. 1 spot on Shazam’s Country chart and sitting at No. 2 on the iTunes Country chart. Critics can’t get enough of the song with Taste of Country saying, “’In Case You Didn’t Know’ is the best example of a song that is pure poetry set to guitar.”
Brett will soon head to Canada to open for Thomas Rhett before spending the summer with Lady Antebellum on the YOU LOOK GOOD AGAIN TOUR. He will make a stop in Nashville on June 11 for a performance at CMA Festival. For additional information and tour dates, visit BrettYoungMusic.com.
