Republic Nashville artist Brett Young made his Grand Ole Opry debut on Saturday night (June 25), when the California native performed his current Top 30 single “Sleep Without You” and the emotional “You Ain’t Here to Kiss Me.”

“I grew up listening to the legends who have performed on this stage before me,” Young said. “Never in a million years did I imagine that a country boy from California would have this opportunity and I am beyond grateful.”

Young’s upcoming festival performances include: Summerfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on June 29; Faster Horses in Brooklyn, New York, on July 15; and Watershed in George, Washington on July 30 and Aug. 5.
