MULTI-PLATINUM selling entertainer Brett Young’s newest single “Mercy” is the No. 1 most-added at Country radio this week, making it his best first day showing to date. “A favorite among his dedicated fan base…” (The Tennessean), the vulnerable track captured attention as soon as his self-titled GOLD album dropped last year.
“’Mercy’ is the new single because of the amazing fan response” Young said. “It’s the feeling you get when someone breaks your heart but won’t let you move on. ‘Mercy’ is a plea to rip the band aid off and many people can relate to that.”
“Mercy” follows three consecutive No. 1 hits from Young’s debut self-titled album. His lead single, PLATINUM-certified “Sleep Without You,” climbed to the top of the charts and was quickly followed by his smash hit “In Case You Didn’t Know,” which landed amongst the New York Times 54 Best Songs of 2017, touted as “one of this year’s most impressive pop songs.” Young’s most recent single, “Like I Loved You,” soared to the top of the charts, holding the No. 1 spot for three weeks.
Last week, Young saw record-breaking attendance as he performed at the Dixie National Rodeo in Jackson, MS. He then returned to his Alma Mater, University of Mississippi, for the baseball team’s opening weekend. A former pitcher for the Rebels, Young spent time with the team and threw out the first pitch to kick off the season. He also drew packed crowds as he performed back-to-back sold-out shows in Oxford.
