In mid-November, Brett Young will trade his opening slot on Thomas Rhett’s Life Changes Tour for a headlining position on his own jaunt across America. Starting on November 16, Young will lead CMT on Tour: Here Tonight with Rachel Wammack and Tyler Rich as his openers.
Wammack and Rich are new to the popular country music world as both of the upcoming artists released their first singles this year, but Young is still a bit of a newcomer, himself. His self-titled, debut album was released in February 2017, and with the success of singles “Sleep Without You,” “In Case You Didn’t Know,” “Like I Loved You,” and “Mercy,” the record has been certified Platinum.
With his first record, in which he penned 11 out of the 12 songs, Young brought his Southern California sound to a Nashville audience, introducing new fans to his “Caliville” style. In 2017, he took home the ACM Award for New Male Vocalist of the Year, concreting his introduction to the Nashville scene and setting him on a path to become an even bigger star.
“This tour has got me pumped already,” Young said in a statement. “We teamed up with CMT to name it after a new song I’ve been working on. It’s all about losing track of time because you’re so wrapped up in the moment. That’s what I want it to be all about out with the fans each night, and Rachel and Tyler are going to be a great way to get it started.”
Before his CMT on Tour: Here Tonight dates begin, Young will headline a sold out show at the Ryman Auditorium on October 10. Tickets for the new tour dates listed below will go on sale this Friday, August 24 at 10:00 a.m. Check out Young’s website for more information.
