Young notches another number one

Tuesday, January 31, 2012 – Another single. Another number one. That's life for Chris Young these days as You hits the top of the charts this week.

"I am ecstatic," said Young. "I've been excited for each number one and to have five in a row feels amazing."

Last week's number one was Luke Bryan's I Don't Want This Night To End.

You, written by Young with Luke Laird, is the follow up to his Tomorrow from his third album "Neon." He also had chart toppers with Gettin' You Home, Voices and the title track to his 2009 gold certified sophomore album, "The Man I Want To Be."

Young also just received two nominations for the Academy of Country Music Awards in the categories of Male Vocalist of the Year and Single Record of the Year for Tomorrow."

Young has had a busy start to the new year as he recently performed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. In the coming months, Young remains on the road with labelmate Miranda Lambert for the "On Fire" tour.

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. ...
