Music industry folks gathered in Music City on Monday to celebrate another Young No. 1. We packed into the newly opened FGL House in Downtown Broadway and sipped drinks as the songwriters gave their thanks. Young penned the track with Trent Tomlinson and Tyler Reeve while they were in Mexico (with the help of Crown Royal). They found the title and “knew we had to write that song,” Young recalled during his speech.
During the party, Young was humble and gracious. He thanked his promotions staff, which he dubbed “the best,” Scott Borchetta, his fellow writers and more while he spoke. The most gracious moment was when he took a moment to realize, “I’m living a dream.” He said the words smack dab in the middle of his speech. Although in that moment he seemed to be taken aback, he didn’t skip a beat.
Watch that memorable moment (2:32) and the rest of his speech in the video above. Congratulations to Young, Tomlinson and Reeve on a beautiful No. 1.
