Last Friday (Dec. 7) Academy of Country Music New Male Vocalist of the Year, Brett Young released his sophomore studio record Ticket To L.A. Today, he continues to promote the album with his first appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show with a performance of his latest single “Here Tonight.”
Two-time Emmy nominated actress, Ellie Kemper guest hosted the daytime talk show and introduced the country star to the audience. The electronic walls displayed the Ticket To L.A. album cover before sliding open to reveal Young and his four-piece band. Young delivered with his impeccable vocals while strumming along to his own acoustic guitar. The infectious feel-good tune had the audience up on their feet, clapping and swaying along to every beat.
Kemper returned to the stage to greet the powerhouse vocalist while the audience filled the air with applause and shouts, little did they know the guest host had a surprise up her sleeve for them. “The name of his CD is Ticket To L.A. AND everyone in the audience is getting a copy,” shared Kemper and the shouts evolved into screams.
For fans who couldn’t make it out to see the ACM winner on this tour run, he will be performing live from the Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight: New Year’s Eve in Nashville event during NBC’s New Year’s Eve celebration, which will air Monday, December 31st on NBC from 10 p.m. – 11 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. – 12:30 a.m.
