Artist Brett Young to play Carolina Country Music Festival Thursday night kick-off concert


MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The Carolina Country Music Festival announced Friday morning via Twitter Brett Young will play the Thursday night kick-off concert along with Montgomery Gentry June 8.

One tweet said Young “has captured the hearts of fans everywhere through his honest lyrics and West Coast-meets-Southern sound, aptly dubbed ‘Caliville’ style.” Another said he was called “’destined for mass appeal’ by Rolling Stone Country. You’re looking at the future making of a super star, like Luke Bryan.”

According to WIkipedia, Young, from Orange County, California, was a college baseball pitcher but took up songwriting after getting injured.

Please welcome to the @McD_MyrtleBeach@myrtlebeach Thursday Night Kick-Off Concert along with Montgomery Gentry, @BrettYoungMusic!
