Early reviews are praising Young, who co-wrote 10 of the 13 tracks on the album:
“But beneath his effortlessly soulful voice and relaxed persona is an artist with an intense vision, and the hustle to make that happen. Talking about his new 13-song project, which features 10 tracks co-written by the hitmaker, Young seems to be equal parts passionate songwriter and album strategist.”- Music Row
“What has connected Young to his fans is his willingness to lay it all out there in his music.”- WWD
“a fresh side to (his) artistry” Rolling Stone
“California-rooted smooth rock groove” Nashville Lifestyles
“An upbeat mix of L.A. polish and Nashville earnestness…Ticket to L.A. will likely be his ticket to country superstardom.” Newsday

TICKET TO L.A. follows Young’s colossal debut, which dominated the Top 20 on the Country Albums chart for 37 weeks and quickly reached RIAA PLATINUM certification. Delivering four consecutive No. 1 PLATINUM-certified hits, Young distinguished himself as the only Country artist on Billboard’s Top New Artist List. He was recently named ASCAP’s 2018 Country Songwriter-Artist of the Year for his “melodic craftsmanship” (Billboard), and his 3X PLATINUM smash hit “In Case You Didn’t Know” was bestowed with the top honor at the BMI Country Awards as their Song of the Year. Young has also garnered nominations from ACM, Billboard, Teen Choice, CMT and CMA Awards as he continues to rack up nonstop hits as “one of country music’s most reliable new hitmakers” (Tennessean). Along with the industry successes, his relationship with fans found Young selling out every stop on his debut headlining CALIVILLE TOUR and earning new followers on the road with Thomas Rhett’s LIFE CHANGES TOUR. Young’s CMT ON TOUR: HERE TONIGHT is currently underway with multiple sell-outs, and he is set to join Kelsea Ballerini in 2019 on the MISS ME MORE TOUR.
