Brett Young’s ‘Ticket To LA’ hits No. 1

Wraps Hot-Ticket Headlining Dates on CMT On Tour: Here Tonight

ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year Brett Young’s sophomore album, Ticket To L.A. (BMLG Records), hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart upon its debut on December 7th. Young co-wrote ten of the thirteen tracks on the “polished” (People) album, showcasing his emotionally fluent brand of country soul. This weekend, the multi-platinum singer/songwriter wrapped his headlining CMT on Tour: Here Tonight with multiple sold out stops.

With multiple national television appearances last week, Young performed his Top 25-and-rising lead single, “Here Tonight,” on NBC’s Today (Dec 11th) where he also debuted the title track. Additionally, he made his debut on The Ellen DeGeneres Show with another captivating performance of the hot single (Dec 14th).

Fans can next catch him performing on NBC’s New Year’s Eve from the Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight: New Year’s Eve in Nashville.

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. He is set to join Kelsea Ballerini in 2019 on the Miss Me More Tour.
