Chris Young Headlines Sold-Out Show in Fort Worth

chris young

Chris Young proved the age-old adage that everything is bigger in Texas when he headlined a sold-out show at Billy Bob’s Ft. Worth over the weekend to a capacity crowd of nearly 6,000 fans. The date marks his second sold out show at the venue and his first play in the market in nearly three years.

“Billy Bob’s is one of my absolute favorite venues to play” shares the 29-year old RCA Records artist. “I always say I love playing anywhere in Texas and that goes double for this venue. I’m so happy to get to play for another sold out crowd in Ft. Worth/Dallas.”

“The World’s Largest Honky Tonk is almost too small to contain Chris Young’s talent,” shares venue President Concho Minick. “Sellouts are becoming the expectation as are knock out shows.”

Young returns to the road this weekend with headlining dates in Frederick, MD, Hampton Beach, NH, Newport, RI, Webster, MA and Bloomsburg, PA and will rejoin the Riser Tour with Dierks Bentley for shows in Cincinnati, OH, Cuyahoga Falls, OH and Nobelsville, IN the following weekend.

“Lonely Eyes” is the third single from his current album A.M. The album has already yielded the Gold certified, sixth chart-topper “Who I Am With You” and Top 5 hit and Gold certified single “Aw Naw.” To catch him on tour at www.chrisyoungcountry.com.

Chris Young visited Nashville School of the Arts (NSA) yesterday to take part in its student produced program, “NSA Presents.” Young, a YoungArts alumni and US Presidential Scholars in the Arts recipient while a student in Middle Tennessee, held true to a promise made earlier this year. At the program’s opening, Young made a presentation of his own, donating $30,000 to Nashville School of the Arts to help update and upgrade the school auditorium. NSA is the only arts magnet high school within Metro Nashville Public Schools, offering its students the “rare combination of rigorous, college preparatory curriculum instructed with intensely focused instruction in the performing or visual arts.”

Chris Young’s Latest Single, “Lonely Eyes” Inspired by Nashville Hangout

chris young

Chris Young admits to the occasional late night hang at Nashville’s renowned Losers Bar & Grill – but this week he’s singing about it! The single singer’s latest smash, “Lonely Eyes,” inspired by the local hangout, is impacting country radio this week, scoring the 2nd most added track with over 46 stations on board!

“Yeah, I’ve spent my fair share of time at Losers (Bar & Grill) in Nashville,” laughs Young. “As a songwriter I like to always be observing the world around me because you never know where you’ll find inspiration, and I’ve seen moments like what I sing about in ‘Lonely Eyes’ go down all the time. I’ve always said the best song wins, and the soaring melody and smart lyrics of this song grabbed me from the first time I heard it.”

Billboard Country Update recently highlighted the song in “Makin’ Tracks” and compares the storyline to forever favorites “Lucille” (Kenny Rogers), “The Chair” (George Strait) and “Drink On It” (Blake Shelton). Written by Johnny Bulford, Jason Matthews and Laura Veltz, “Lonely Eyes” watches two strangers lock eyes at a bar and imagine where the night might lead.

Early praise for the song includes:

“Chris turns the charm meter up to 10 on this throbbing roadhouse romance.” – Music Row

“Chris Young is one of the strongest male vocalists in the format right now…Young’s smooth vocals will strike a chord with all the women out there.” – All Access

“He has a brand. This traditional country song will strike a chord with fans…” – Taste of Country

“Chris Young’s 3rd single off his album A.M. is his best yet.” – Whiskey Riff

Listen below.

“Lonely Eyes” is the third single from his current album A.M.The album has already yielded the Gold certified chart-topper “Who I Am With You” and Top 5 hit and Gold certified single “Aw Naw.”
