It's Chris Young's time to shine
It was quite the understatement when singer/guitarist Chris Young named his 2018 tour Losing Sleep. Riding a growing wave of popularity, the country star had little time to close his eyes during the entire year. Originally scheduled for just 18 stops, the wildly successful series of shows played 55 arenas nationwide.
Barely pausing to catch his breath, the award-winning artist sprang into 2019 with another round of headlining performances. Named for his chart-topping single, the Raised On Country World Tour launched in Manchester, England, with a sold-out crowd. Now that they’re back in the States, Chris and his band are filling up American arenas while simultaneously delivering great new music.
In July, the Nashville Star winner surprised fans with the unexpected release of “Town Ain’t Big Enough” featuring American Idol’s Lauren Alaina. And June saw the debut of his heartfelt solo single “Drowning.” In between, Chris has donated his time to several children’s charities and continues work on an upcoming album. If that weren’t enough, 19 additional arena dates have been added to Raised On Country through the end of November. Losing sleep, indeed.
