“Hitmaker” (Tennessean) Brett Young continues to take “Country radio by storm” (Billboard) earning his third consecutive No. 1 with “Like I Loved You.” Young wrote the GOLD-certified tune alongside Jesse Lee, which climbed to the top spot on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay Charts where it has remained for the past three weeks.
“This was such awesome news to start the new year,” Young said. “I’m genuinely blown away and so thankful to my fans and Country radio for their continued support of my music.”
Already earning the No. 1 spot on Shazam’s Country Chart, Marie Claire named “Like I Loved You” as the top Country Song of 2017 Worth Listening To. The trajectory follows his previous chart-toppers – PLATINUM-selling lead single “Sleep Without You” and 2X PLATINUM smash “In Case You Didn’t Know,” the first Country song released in 2017 to reach PLATINUM-certification status and one of only two Country songs released last year to earn the honor.
“Destined for mass appeal,” (Rolling Stone) Young released his “soothing, approachable” (New York Times) self-titled debut album on BMLG Records. The GOLD-certified album became an instant success leading to breakout hit “In Case You Didn’t Know” being listed in The New York Times 54 Best Songs of 2017, touted as “one of this year’s most impressive pop songs.” Amazon Music named the track as the Top Country Song of 2017 while Pandora listeners also recognized Young’s tune in the Top 50 of their all-genre Top Thumb Hundred list. The song’s official music video was greeted with matched enthusiasm, surpassing 160 million+ views since its release and landing among Vevo’s top all-genre videos of 2017. Young is also the only artist to have two videos on Vevo’s Top Country Videos Chart for 2017.
