Young's self‐titled debut album earned Young the title of best‐selling new male artist for 2006 and a nod for the Academy of Country Music's Top New Male Vocalist award. Young doubled‐down on the success of his first record with the release of his second album, "The Man I Want to Be." Any concern over maintaining momentum vanished when the album powered right through with three back‐to‐back No. 1 singles. The impressive streak started with the title track, picked up steam with "Gettin' You Home," a song that earned him his first‐ever Grammy nomination, and was then followed by "Voices."
Thompson Square burst onto the national stage with the release of the infectious radio smash "Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not." Things have happened very quickly since then - the duo was nominated for 14 industry awards in 2011, including two Grammy nominations for Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance of the Year; an American Music Award nomination for New Artist of the Year; two 2011 CMA Awards nominations for Best New Artist and Vocal Duo of the Year and two CMT Music Awards nominations.
Thompson Square earned a follow-up Top 10 hit with, "I Got You," and traveled the national media circuit. Thompson Square finished 2011 as Billboard's No. 1 New Country Artist in terms of its single (Hot 100) and album sales (Hot 200) charts.
