– 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.
