Have "Mercy!" Brett Young celebrates sales success with Platinum pool party

Brooke GreenbergIn case you didn't know, Brett Young has sold millions of copies of his songs.

The ACM winner celebrated his sales milestones Wednesday night with friends, family and colleagues at a pool party outside of Nashville, where he surprised the crowd with a preview of "Here Tonight," the lead single from his upcoming second album.

Brett was marking the platinum success of both his self-titled debut album and his latest hit, "Mercy" -- both have sold more than one million units.  Brett's singles "Sleep Tonight" and "Like I Loved You" are also platinum, while "In Case You Didn't Know" has been certified for sales of three million units.

The location of the party was particularly important to Brett: It took place at the backyard pool of an executive at his record company, which is where he signed his record deal three years ago.

"It was surreal being back where I first signed my record deal and seeing how much has happened since then,” Brett says. “It’s crazy to think just three years ago I was in the same place just getting started with my team."

He adds, "I wrote this album from such a vulnerable and honest place, so it means the world that these songs have connected with people the way they have. The time has flown by, and I can’t wait to share the new music with fans soon."
