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


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 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 and

Chris Young celebrates the Holiday Season with ‘It Must Be Christmas’


Christmas will arrive early this year for  Chris Young with the release of his first-ever Christmas album on October 14th — It Must Be Christmas — to celebrate the holiday season.

“This is something I’ve wanted to do for a really long time,” said Young. “Christmas is one of my favorite times of year and it was hard to narrow down the list of songs for this record. I’m excited to share my own versions of many of the standards I sang as a kid every year at Christmas, plus I had the opportunity to write a couple of original songs to celebrate the season.”

Beginning today, a special limited autographed copy of Chris Young’s It Must Be Christmas can be pre-ordered at Amazon ahead of the October 14th release. In addition, limited edition gift packages are available for order at Bundles include everything from a Christmas ornament, It Must Be Christmas long-sleeve t-shirt, a fleece lined winter blanket and more!

It Must Be Christmas marks the hit-maker’s sixth album in a career that has spawned eight No. 1 songs and fifteen Gold/Platinum certifications. Young and Corey Crowder, who first teamed up to produce Young’s Gold certified album I’m Comin’ Over, also joined forces to produce It Must Be Christmas. Later this month Young will embark on the second leg of his headlining “I’m Comin’ Over Tour.” Special guests joining Young in concert in September and October are Dan + Shay, with Dustin Lynch coming on board in November and December. Fellow CMA Musical Event of the Year nominee and “Think Of You” duet partner Cassadee Pope will return for all dates after providing direct support during the first leg of the tour. Tickets can be purchased at and

ACM Honors Packed with Performances and Tributes to The Best of the Best

acm honors

Last night artists, songwriters, industry folks and fans gathered at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium to celebrate the off-camera awards from the 51st Annual Academy of Country Music Awards at the ACM Honors. Normally a low-key gathering, this year’s show pulled out the big guns with a performance packed show fit for television. Ironically enough, the show will air September 9th on CBS at 9PM ET/PT.


Musicians, songwriters, artists honored each other with one-of-a-kind covers of songs made famous by those before them. Paying tribute to those that paved the way. Without giving it all away, stand-out performances include Maren Morris’ “Delta Dawn,” Kelsea Ballerini’s tribute to Crystal Gayle with “Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue,” Luke Bryan and Cole Swindell’s “Love a Rainy Night” tribute to Eddie Rabbit… but the performance of the night goes to Alicia Keys and Cam absolutely killing Little Big Town‘s “Girl Crush.” Seriously. Those girls can sing.
