Chris Young Reveals Tracklist for “It Must Be Christmas” with Special Duets

chris-young-christmas

Chris Young reveals the complete tracklist for his first Christmas album, It Must Be Christmas, set to release on October 14th. The collection features special guest appearances including country icon Alan Jackson on “There’s A New Kid In Town.” The song originally appeared on Jackson’s first Christmas album released in 1993 as a duet with the legendary Keith Whitley.  Country superstar Brad Paisley joins Young for a powerful rendition of “The First Noel.” Legendary soul trio Boyz II Men lend their voices for an epic take on the Christmas classic, “Silent Night.” Young co-wrote two original Christmas songs for the project – “Under The Weather” and the title track “It Must Be Christmas.”

Limited edition It Must Be Christmas gift bundles are available for order at ChrisYoungCountry.com. Bundles include everything from a Christmas ornament, It Must Be Christmas long-sleeve t-shirt, a fleece lined winter blanket and more!

2016 has proven to be a banner year for Young who recently received a CMA Musical Event Of The Year nomination for “Think Of You” with Cassadee Pope, the hit-maker’s eighth No. 1 single. Young’s celebrated fifth studio album, I’m Comin’ Over, produced two back-to-back No. 1 hits – the project’s Platinum selling title track and CMA Musical Event Of The Year nominated “Think Of You” duet with Cassadee Pope – and Young’s current critically-acclaimed single “Sober Saturday Night,” featuring Vince Gill. Later this month, Young launches the fall leg of his headlining “I’m Comin’ Over Tour” joined by Dan + Shay, Dustin Lynch and Cassadee Pope. Tickets may be purchased at aeglive.com and ChrisYoungCountry.com.

Alan Jackson to Open Another Place to Have a Good Time in Nashville

Alan Jackson bought Nashville bar The Wheel and The Wheel Cigar Bar for $5.75 million. The Tennessean reports the three-story, 6,000 sq. ft. building at 421 Broadway will re-open later this year as AJ’s Good Time Bar, named for Jackson’s 2008 song “Good Time.”

A message on Jackson’s website, which has also been seen posted on Nashville billboards, suggests the club’s entertainment will be country music. Jackson is already a partner in the Acme Feed & Seed bar/restaurant, also on lower Broadway.

“I always wanted to own a honky tonk that plays real country music on Broadway that I could put my name on,” Alan said.

Alan Jackson is among the more than 50 musical artists featured in a new exhibit at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. Louder Than Music: Rock, Power & Politics chronicles a variety of times, places and moments where music and American history have crossed paths over the last several decades – Alan is represented by the Jim Triggs guitar he played onstage at the 2001 CMA Awards ceremony in Nashville, where he first performed his iconic “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning),” a song inspired by the events and aftermath of the 9-11 terrorist attacks. The exhibit also includes Alan’s handwritten lyrics of the song.

Alan’s guitar is featured alongside artifacts and items from such wide-ranging talents as Beyonce, Bob Dylan, Lady Gaga, U2’s Bono and Keith Richards…as well as superstars and music icons such as John Lennon, Aretha Franklin, Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Wonder. Louder Than Music: Rock, Power & Politics is open now – the exhibit runs at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland through November 27 (Thanksgiving Weekend), when it will be packed and moved to The Newseum in Washington, DC to be placed on display a week ahead of next year’s Presidential Inauguration.

“Where Were You” captured a still-reeling nation’s emotions unlike any other song – it would go on to be honored with Grammy, CMA and ACM Awards and other accolades…and, 15 years after the events of September 2001, remains a staple of Jackson’s concerts due to fan demand.

Jackson recently celebrated his 25th year as a member of the Grand Ole Opry with an appearance on its world-famous stage…and he just spent a month at the top of Billboard’s all-genre Music DVD chart with Keepin’ It Country: Live at Red Rocks, a concert DVD captured on tour at the revered Colorado concert venue in 2015. Jackson’s Keepin’ It Country Tour – extended from 2015 into this year – continues this summer with performances this weekend at Ohio’s iconic Jamboree in the Hills (July 15) and the Faster Horses Festival in Michigan (July 17). More shows – available at www.alanjackson.com – follow in August and through the fall.
