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 the lead single “Here Tonight” before previewing additional tracks from his upcoming sophomore album  TICKET TO L.A., due December 7 on BMLG Records.

Young also drew from his collection of chart-toppers on his self-titled debut, including PLATINUM-selling two-week No. 1 “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. 1 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. 1's. It’s pretty special."
