MULTI PLATINUM-selling Brett Young performed for a sold-out crowd Friday night (11/17) at Marathon Music Works in Nashville on his debut headlining CALIVILLE TOUR featuring chart-topping singer/songwriter Carly Pearce. He thrilled the crowd with his “smooth vocals” (Washington Post), highlighting his “melodic craftsmanship” (Billboard) as he performed songs from his debut self-titled album (BMLG Records) including 2X PLATINUM “In Case You Didn’t Know,” PLATINUM “Sleep Without You” and Top 10-and-rising “Like I Loved You.” Young also collaborated with Carly Pearce for a stunning rendition of “Whiskey Lullaby” and surprised the crowd when he brought Gavin DeGraw onstage for a special moment.
“Getting to play a sold-out show on my first ever headlining tour here in Nashville was really special for me,” Young said. “It was awesome to have so many friends there, and getting to bring Gavin out was icing on the cake. He’s one of the reasons I’m making music, so it all feels very full circle.”
