Brett Young is nominated for New Artist of the Year at tonight's (Wednesday, November 8th) CMA Awards, alongside Old Dominion, Jon Pardi, Lauren Alaina and Luke Combs. Brett is certainly seeing his share of success on the charts these days, but as he tells us, this is no time to get comfortable. [“The funny thing is, is you do have all these moments where somebody is singing your song back to you or every once in a while somebody stops you in the airport and wants a picture. And those moments do remind you that things are going well but for the most part you still wake up tomorrow at 4:30 and you’re looking at each other going, some stuff really hasn’t changed at all. So it’s really gratifying and it’s really exciting, at the same time I think it’s important to keep your head down and keep the same work ethic and keep doing the same things that got you there in the first place.”] SOUNDCUE (:23 OC: . . . the first place.)
Brett will also serve as a presenter on tonight's CMA Awards, which airs live from Nashville on ABC beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
