Brett Young has been named the 2018 ASCAP Country Songwriter-Artist of the Year, thanks to his four consecutive Number One singles. He will be celebrated at the 56th Annual ASCAP Country Music Awards, being held on Monday, November 12th in Nashville.
Brett said, “I have been with ASCAP from the very beginning, and they have always made me feel like a part of the family . . . I also want to give a huge thank you to everyone in the songwriting community and in country music who welcomed me right away. I moved to Nashville to be a songwriter and it was a happy accident that I also became an artist. I’ve gotten better because I am lucky enough to get into rooms with incredible writers, and I do not take that for granted.” The Songwriter-Artist of the Year Award is earned by the songwriter who has written and recorded at least two songs that, collectively, have amassed the greatest airplay during a predetermined time period.
Brett's chart-topping singles, “In Case You Didn’t Know” (triple Platinum) and “Like I Loved You”(Platinum) will be among the most-performed songs honored at the awards event.
