Young kicks off tour

Wednesday, September 30, 2015 – Just days after returning stateside following the European leg of his "I'm Comin' Over" World Tour, RCA Records artist Chris Young headlined a hometown show at Nashville's Ascend Amphitheater to kick off his U.S. concert tour in front of a crowd of more than 5,000 fans.

"I was both excited and anxious to come home and play a show in Nashville. I knew I was going to have a lot of friends and family in the audience so I didn't want to screw up" said Young. "The audience at Ascend Amphitheater blew me away, and I could have kept playing all night long."

His first headlining show in Music City since 2012, Young played a 75-minute set, including "Tomorrow," "You," "Voices," "Gettin' You Home," "The Man I Want To Be" and "Who I Am With You."

Young surprised the crowd midway through his set, inviting Brad Paisley to join him on stage to perform Eric Clapton's "Change The World." Young channeled Conway Twitty during "I Can Take It From There."

Young played "I'm Comin' Over," the title track to Young's upcoming album, due Nov. 13. Prior to taking the stage, Sony Music Nashville presented Young with a plaque celebrating the single's recent RIAA Gold certification.

Label mates Jerrod Niemann and Cam joined Young for the Nashville show. Eric Paslay and Clare Dunn open 14 shows October through December.

CD review - Famous Friends Given the massive success of Chris Young's award-winning collaboration with Kane Brown on the title track, it would be an easy assumption to make that his eighth studio album would tow the same contemporary line that landed him a bevy of hits. The result is exactly that. But with some contingencies The opener, "Raised on Country," starts out with a raucous groove that may get your toes tapping for the entirety, but the lyrics devolve into some painfully tired cliches like ...
CD review - Losing Sleep Chris Young has one of the best country voices, and it's always a pleasure to hear him sing. But it's disappointing when the title cut sounds more like the groove to a Justin Bieber song than anything truly country. 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. ...
