Multi-Platinum selling and current CMA Awards nominee Brett Young and Country’s chart-topping “it” girl Carly Pearce will film a double episode of public television’s groundbreaking concert series, Front and Center, on September 17 at Opry City Stage. Tickets for the live performances from New York City’s home for country music and culture located in Times Square are available at https://bit.ly/2CK3aVj Doors will open at 6:00 pm with the show beginning at 7:30 pm. Named as the only Country act on Billboard’s Top New Artists list, Brett Young has captured the hearts of fans everywhere through his honest lyrics and West Coast-meets-Southern sound, aptly dubbed “Caliville” style. The 2018 ACM Awards New Male Vocalist of the Year, released his PLATINUM-certified self-titled debut on BMLG Records. The Billboard Music Awards-nominated album produced four No. 1 radio hits: PLATINUM “Sleep Without You,” “Like I Loved You” and “Mercy,” plus 3X PLATINUM “In Case You Didn’t Know.” Along with the success of his over 1 billion in total song streams, Brett’s music videos have added steam with “In Case You Didn’t Know” approaching 200 million views and “Mercy” spending multiple weeks atop Vevo’s Top Country chart. Brett continues to impress the genre and beyond with nominations from the ACM, Billboard, Teen Choice, CMT, iHeartRadio and most recently a CMA Awards nod for New Artist of the Year. Further establishing himself as a dynamic creator, he will serve as the new Brand Ambassador alongside supermodel Stella Maxwell for William Rast’s Fall 2018 men’s and women’s collection. This fall, Brett will hit the road with Thomas Rhett before his headline dates on CMT ON TOUR: HERE TONIGHT. His highly-anticipated sophomore album TICKET TO L.A. will be released December 7 and has already teased lead single “Here Tonight.” For additional information, visit brettyoungmusic.com.
Carly Pearce defied the odds with her No. 1 debut “Every Little Thing,” which steered a chart-topping trifecta on SirisuXM’s The Highway that also includes “If My Name Was Whiskey” and “Hide The Wine.” The latter is currently Top 15 and aging nicely at Country radio. With the GOLD-certified title track from her highly-acclaimed debut album EVERY LITTLE THING (Big Machine Records), Carly became the highest charting solo female debut since July 2015 and one of only three to accomplish the feat in twelve years. Earning her first ACM Awards nomination for New Female Vocalist of the Year in April, Carly won CMT Music Awards Breakthrough Video of the Year for “Every Little Thing” and Radio Disney Music Award The Freshest! – Radio Disney Country Best New Artist. Invited on four major tours this year, Carly is currently on the road with Luke Bryan following a stint last year with Brett on his sold-out club run.
