Chris Young is in a Denver area hospital with a leg infection. He is listed in stable condition. Last night’s headlining show in Kalispell, MT was cancelled as well as his performances on Brad Paisley’s “Beat This Summer Tour Presented By Cracker Barrel Old Country Store” tonight in Penticton, BC, Aug. 16th in Mission, BC and Aug. 17th in Brownsville, OR. He is expected to resume touring in Redding, CA on Aug. 21th.
While the origin of the infection is unknown, Chris will remain in the hospital for at least the next 24 hours. Chris was en route to Kalispell, MT when the symptoms set in and he was taken by ambulance to the hospital.
“I’m so sorry to disappoint the fans but I didn’t even know I was sick,” said Chris. “One minute I was fine then suddenly I’m being rushed to the hospital,” he continued. “I look forward to being up and around and back on the road.”
Chris Young’s new single, “Aw Naw” is quickly climbing the country singles charts and is the first single from his forthcoming album, A.M. which will be released Sept. 17th on RCA Records Nashville.
We wish Chris a speedy recovery.
