Brett Young Honored For “Mercy” RIAA Gold Certification

ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year Brett Young was surprised last Thursday (6/7) with a plaque to recognize his current single “Mercy” earning RIAA Gold Certification. Young was honored by his record label at the Big Machine Store & Distillery in Nashville following fan signings during CMA Fest.

“A favorite among his dedicated fanbase,” (Tennessean) “Mercy” is currently top 20 and rising on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart and follows Young’s chart-topping PLATINUM hits “Sleep Without You” and “Like I Loved You” along with the 3X PLATINUM, No. One smash “In Case You Didn’t Know.”

Brett Young’s “soothing, approachable” (New York Times) self-titled debut album became an instant success upon its 2017 release when it dominated the Top 20 on the Country Albums chart for 37 weeks, quickly reaching RIAA GOLD Certification. Delivering hit after hit, Young became one of Country music’s “most reliable new hitmakers” (Tennessean). Along with the success of his songs, his music videos have become fast hits as well, with “In Case You Didn’t Know” surpassing 185 million views alone while the video for “Mercy” spent multiple weeks atop Vevo’s Top Country chart. Drawing in a devoted fan base with his unique voice, “a gentle and seductive combination of silk and gravel” (All Access), he “doesn’t sound like anyone else in Nashville” (Omaha World Herald). Named as the only Country act to Billboard’s Top 10 New Artists, the industry continues to take notice with ACM Award, Billboard Award, Teen Choice Award, CMT Music Awards and CMA Award nominations. Fans have flocked to hear Young’s distinct sound live, selling out every single stop on his debut headlining CALIVILLE TOUR and can catch Young on Thomas Rhett’s LIFE CHANGES TOUR 2018 now.
