Chris Young is having fun! His single, “Who I Am With You,” sits atop the Mediabase Country Singles Chart, it has been certified Gold, and he’s spending the summer doing what he loves most, on the road performing for the fans. “Yeah, I’m pretty happy right now,” said the singer-songwriter who has 6 #1 singles to his credit.

“Everybody is looking for that one person who lets them be themselves and, whether we want to admit it or not, pushes us to be a better person,” said Chris. “This song couldn’t say it any better and I’m glad I got to be the person to sing it.” “Who I Am With You” was written by Marv Green, Jason Sellers and Paul Jenkins.

In addition to topping the charts, Chris Young’s “Who I Am With You” claimed the #1 spot in Rolling Stone’s poll of Best Country Songs of 2014. The 29-year old singer is also earning rave reviews for his live show, with The Times Tribune declaring “headliner status is just around the corner.” This week, Young joins Dierks Bentley for shows at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO (July 23), The Greek Theater in Los Angeles, CA (July 25), AK-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix, AZ (July 26) and Sleep Train Amphitheater in Chula Vista, CA (July 27).

“Who I Am With You,” is the second single from his current album A.M. The album has already yielded the Top 5 hit and Gold certified single “Aw Naw.”

Join the Dierks Bentley “Riser Bird Movement”

Dierks Bentley

Flocks of Riser Birds began descending on Nashville this week to help announce country music star Dierks Bentley’s ninth annual “Miles & Music for Kids” celebrity motorcycle ride and all-star concert scheduled for Sun., Sept. 28 in Nashville, TN.   Randy Houser, Kip Moore, Jon Pardi  and Chris Young have been tapped as the first artists to take part in the event, which has raised over $2.5 million to date for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country. Presale tickets are available beginning tomorrow, July 9 on www.dierks.com and general public tickets go on sale this Fri., July 11 at 10:00A CT.

“The Riser bird symbol we’ve been using to represent this album has really come to mean something to my fans.  I’ve been hearing stories about it on the road, people are getting tattoos of it.  It’s a symbol of strength and resilience, and I think it’s perfect to extend into what we do for Miles & Music, especially when we are talking about the history of the event, the bikers and fans who come out every year to support it and most importantly, the children and their families being treated at Vandy. ” said Bentley.

“The Riser Bird Movement that started this week is a cool way to get the community involved in a deeper way and earlier this year….it’s been fun to see it start to spread across town.”

This year’s annual event will once again begin at the Harley Davidson of Columbia (1616 HarleyDavidson Blvd., Columbia, TN) for an hour-long ride that ends downtown at Nashville’s Riverfront Park. From Riverfront, Bentley will take the stage for a family-friendly day of music with a lineup that will continue to grow as the event approaches.

Fans can purchase a combo ticket for the ride and concert for $50 or individual concert tickets for $30. Special VIP packages and student tickets are also available. This month, Nashville residents can “Flock It Forward” at www.dierks.com/riserbirdmovement by sending Riser Birds to their friends, also benefiting “Miles & Music.” All proceeds from both events will benefit Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
