Named as the only country act on Billboard’s Top 10 New Artists, ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year Brett Young has captured the hearts of fans everywhere through his honest lyrics and West Coast-meets-Southern sound, aptly dubbed “Caliville” style. “Destined for mass appeal” (Rolling Stone Country), the 2018 ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year released his self-titled, GOLD-certified debut album on BMLG Records in February 2017. The album was recorded in Nashville with producer Dann Huff (Keith Urban, Thomas Rhett, Steven Tyler) and features 11 of the 12 tracks co-written by Brett, including his most recent No. 1 Platinum-certified single “Like I Loved You” and the No. 1 Platinum-certified debut “Sleep Without You.” The follow-up sophomore single, a Billboard and Mediabase No. 1 hit “In Case You Didn’t Know,” solidified Brett as the first country artist to hit the 3x Platinum-certification sales mark since 2014.
Brett has proven himself to be one of Country music’s “most reliable new hitmakers” (Tennessean), not just with the success of his songs, but also with the success of his music videos. “In Case You Didn’t Know” has surpassed 175 million views alone, more than any debut country artist, and while his current single “Mercy” is steadily climbing the radio charts, the video for the song hit No. 1 in its second week on the Vevo Top Country chart. Having previously toured with superstars Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley, and Lady Antebellum, the California native sold out every single stop on his debut headlining CALIVILLE TOUR. This spring he is on the road with Thomas Rhett’s LIFE CHANGES TOUR 2018.
The Mandalay Bay Beach stage, which rises over the Four Diamond resort’s sand and surf wave pool, has hosted entertainment’s biggest names as part of the fan-favorite series. Concert-goers are invited to enjoy musical performances which perfectly complement the warm season as they sip on cocktails, sink their toes in the sand and wade in the water at Mandalay Bay’s 1.6-million-gallon wave pool.
The Beachfront Experience at Mandalay Bay Beach’s Concerts on the Beach series is returning for the second year during select events. This premier experience grants guests access to an exclusive area on the Beach which includes lounge chair seating, cocktail service and premium viewing of the show. Guests also will receive expedited entry into the venue.
