Chris Young, born Christopher Alan Young June 12, 1985, is an American country music artist out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. On stage with the house band at a gig in Texas, he took an audience member's advice to enter and win the 2006 edition of the USA Network's Nashville Star television talent search. One month later saw him back in Tennessee to take the stage for his first CMA Music Festival appearance, at Riverfront Park in Downtown Nashville.
Already a seasoned live performer, playing 150 dates a year before dropping out of college, Young opened January, 2007 in concert at the Midland Center for the Arts in Michigan promoting his self-titled debut album for RCA Records. In the summer of 2009, he became a number one selling artist for the first time with a Gold Award and music video for the single "Gettin' You Home (The Black Dress Song)." Kicking off the summer that came next with his first win at the CMT Music Awards, the by-then star finished it opening for fellow chart-toppers Rascal Flatts on the band's Nothing Like This tour.
A singer-songwriter with a melancholy baritone and a lyrical range varying from slice-of-life to suggestive, Young joined the Stars and Stripes Tour in April, 2011, visiting servicemen in Iraq and Kuwait. He scored his fourth straight country number one hit "Tomorrow" later in 2011, from his third album, "NEON."
