BMLG labelmates Brett Young and Carly Pearce had much to celebrate during a show at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works on Friday (Nov. 17).

The performance was one of 17 sold-out shows on Young’s first-ever headlining trek, dubbed the Caliville Tour. During the Nashville show, Young lent his soothing, soulful voice to songs including his current single “Like I Loved You,” and his two-time Platinum-certified hit “In Case You Didn’t Know,” as well as the Platinum-certified “Sleep Without You.”

Young has clearly learned one thing from his stints opening shows for Lady Antebellum and Thomas Rhett: Crowds love surprises. Young didn’t falter, as he brought Gavin DeGraw out for a surprise performance.

He also brought opener Carly Pearce out for a stirring rendition of “Whiskey Lullaby,” and offered his own take on the Leonard Cohen classic “Hallelujah” during the Nashville tour stop.

Meanwhile, Pearce offered several songs from her recently-released debut album for BMLG, and celebrated her first No. 1 single, the Gold-certified “Every Little Thing” with her BMLG team after her opening performance. She is the only solo female with a charting country debut single to achieve a Gold-certification in 2017.
