Brett Young Performs 'Mercy,' Salutes Country Radio at 2018 CMA Awards

Brett Young's single "Mercy" went all the way to the top of Billboard's Country Airplay chart this year, marking his third No. 1 on the tally. So in the segment of the 2018 Country Music Awards dedicated to country radio, it's appropriate the singer-songwriter gave the song and the industry some shine.

Just before the year's award-winning stations were unveiled, Young delivered an intimate performance of "Mercy" from inside the crowd.  

This was a direct, short-and-sweet performance, with Young and his mic letting the song's sentiment resonate. After it was over, he shouted out the many country radio stations that have supported this, and his past No. 1 hits. 

Watch a clip of the performance above.
