Chris Young Plays ABCs Nashville

Posted on 10 January 2013 by Bill West

Chris YoungChris Young is forging a huge career in country music.   Next up he will get some major face time on ABC’s Nashville this month and it’s happening at a time when traditional country music is starting to slide out of vogue, and country songs are crossing over to pop more and more.  Still Young has a string of real hits to carry him through until a time comes and hats and twang and weeping fiddles get more credit.

Young has always had that twang.   He grew up just outside of Nashville in Murfreesboro, TN (born Alan Chris Young June 12, 1985) where you can’t avoid the country influence or the recording industry money.

His undeniable “big break” was as a contestant of Nashville Star in the shows early years.  He won the contest along with a recording deal on RCA Nashville.  Still the accolades and fans from the show were not enough to land Young a real hit record as his two singles from his self named debut album failed to crack the country Top 40.

Although he released Voices in May 2008 it never became a hit until it was later rereleased in late 2009.   The “Voices” album launched big hits to finally plant Youngs flag as one to watch in country music.   Gettin’ You Home, The Man I want to Be and Voices all hit number one. With the release of his third album “Neon” his momentum and stellar music pushed him even further.  His lead single from the album, Tomorrow was a quick success as was the fan favorite You.  Both hitting number one.

Young has joined major tours with Miranda Lambert and Jason Aldean and looks to continue to work his way into headlining his own show like his Liquid Neon Tour.

With the release of Neon in 2011 Young stepped away from his signature cowboy hat to go hatless.  It was a move he says was not over calculated but fans noticed.

He continues on a path to become one of the young A-listers winning awards at the American Country Awards and the CMT Music Awards.

Next up he showcases his acting chops with a guest spot on the ABC hit series Nashville.  The episode – also featuring Brantley Gilbert will air January 23rd.

Chris Young Voices

Posted on 27 May 2010 by editor



It’s number-one number two for one happy guy from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, as Chris Young scores his second consecutive number-one single, hitting the chart summit this week with “The Man I Want to Be.” It was only last October when Chris had his first chart-topper with “Gettin’ You Home,” and Chris says it’s just an amazing feeling to make it two in a row. Of course, while two number-ones are terrific, Chris can’t help but smile as he thinks about being on tour now with Alan Jackson. He laughs, “If I repeat this, like, 80 times, I can have the same show Alan Jackson does.”

But even as Chris continues to make his own mark on chart history, he’s offering a tip of the hat to some of the artists who’ve influenced him, and you can hear his salute to those music makers with the May 25th release of Chris’ Voices EP.
Shop on iTunes
It’s an all-acoustic digital album, available exclusively on the iTunes Store, and it contains Chris’ recordings of three classic favorites: Vern Gosdin’s “Chiseled in Stone,” Keith Whitley’s “I’m Over You,” and John Anderson’s “Swingin’.” For Chris, releasing the EP was a way to offer something special for his fans while also celebrating some of his favorite artists and songs. And doing it all acoustically was another way that Chris thought it could be a cool project. Chris says, “It’s just really pure…if you were sittin’ there across from me, and I wanted to play these three songs, this is what I would do.”Shop on iTunes
