Charges against Young dismissed

Saturday, January 27, 2024 – All charges against Chris Young, who was arrested on Monday night following an incident at a Nashville bar, were dropped on Friday.

In a statement issued by Nashville District Attorney, Glenn Funk, he said, "Regarding the Chris Young incident – After a review of all the evidence in this case, the Office of the District Attorney has determined that these charges will be dismissed."

Young's attorney Bill Ramsey said, "Mr. Young and I are gratified with the DA's decision clearing him of the charges and any wrong-doing."

Young was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and assault on officer offensive contact following an altercation with Tin Roof Bar in Nashville.

Young was allegedly drinking at the bar when agents from the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission came in to check IDs and license cards. The TMZ website said Young questioned officers after doing a check of him.

Officials said Young started recording them and followed them to the Dawg House, a bar next door, where the agents did a compliance check, according to TMZ. TMZ reported "The agents say they were walking to the door when Chris blocked their exit, putting his hands on one of the officers to stop the agent from leaving and striking the agent on the shoulder." The officer said he pushed Young away, and then people are the bar got involved.

Young's attorney released four different videos capturing the incident. Young appeared to be pushed with both hands of one man, who was not identified, and fell to the floor.

Young will release his ninth studio album, "Young Love & Saturday Nights," on March 22 on Sony Music Nashville and gearing up to head out on his headlining "Young Love & Saturday Nights 2024 Tour."

When, say, someone like Jason Aldean performs music with barely any resemblance to real country music, it's not that big a deal; he's not a great natural singer to begin with. However, Young's voice is just too good to waste on mere pop. ...
CD review - It Must Be Christmas Song selection can sometimes seem fairly inessential whenever chosen by a master singer. Such is the case with "It Must Be Christmas," Chris Young's new holiday collection. He sounds as perfectly comfortable with the jazzy "I'll Be Home for Christmas," where its supper club vibe takes a little of the edge off one seriously sad song, as he does with the Phil Spector rock nugget "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)." Young is also helped out by a few special guests. ...
