Brett Young scored his first No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart this week (May 30) with his sophomore single, “In Case You Didn’t Know.”
Co-written by Brett, Tyler Reeve, Kyle Schlienger and Trent Tomlinson, the emotional melody was recently certified platinum by the RIAA for sales of 1 million units. Brett is the only country artist to reach the platinum milestone with a song released in 2017.
“As a songwriter, the ultimate reward when you write a song is that it impacts someone’s life,” said Brett. “Maybe one of our biggest inspirations and challenges, but when it happens, it is simply the most fantastic feeling.”
Brett’s previous single, “Sleep Without You,” reached No. 2 on the Billboard chart while ascending to the top position on the Mediabase chart in November 2016.
Currently, Brett is serving as support on Lady Antebellum’s You Look Good World Tour.
