Brett Young wraps final week of CMT On Tour: Here Tonight Tour with Tyler Rich and Rachel Wammack in Louisville, KY (12/15)

Brett Young has debuted atop the country albums chart with his sophomore album, Ticket To L.A. (BMLG Records), which reached No. 1 following its release Dec. 7. Music Connect puts total consumption of the album in its first week at 36,257.

Last week in support of the new project Young visited the TODAY show for multiple performances including the album’s title track, and also stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to perform his new single. Fans can tune in to catch him perform on NBC’s New Year’s Eve from the Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight: New Year’s Eve in Nashville.

Ticket To L.A. follows Young’s blockbuster debut, which earned Platinum certification and yielded four consecutive No. 1 Platinum hits including the monster hit “In Case You Didn’t Know.”

Capping off a monumental year, Young just wrapped up the final week of CMT On Tour: Here Tonight Tour along with Tyler Rich and Rachel Wammack in Kansas City on Dec. 16.
