Chris Young to Kick-off Fall ‘I’m Comin’ Over Tour’ with Labor of Love

chris young

Chris Young and CASE Construction Equipment are teaming up in 2016 for the fall run of Young’s “I’m Comin’ Over Tour.” The partnership will kick off September 5 with the “Labor Of Love” concert in Racine, WI. Proceeds from the concert, headlined by Young, will benefit Team Rubicon, a disaster response organization comprised of more than 36,000 veterans and first responders, with the goal of helping the organization expand its veteran’s skills training programs. Tickets to 2016’s “Labor of Love” concert with Chris Young can be purchased at www.ticketmaster.com/laboroflove.

The partnership with CASE and Team Rubicon is a natural one for Young – his father works in construction and multiple family members, including his younger sister, are either in the Marines or are US military veterans.

“It’s going to be great having CASE out on tour with us,” said Young. “The work they do with connecting military veterans to job and training opportunities in the skilled trades is close to my heart, and I’m glad to have the opportunity to support those efforts.”

Chris Young’s “I’m Comin’ Over Tour” will span 25 shows running September through the end of the year. CASE Construction Equipment will join the tour as an official sponsor. Special guests joining Young on tour in September and October are Dan + Shay, with Dustin Lynch coming on board in November and December. Cassadee Pope, who provided direct support for the first leg of the tour, is returning for all Fall dates of Young’s “I’m Comin’ Over Tour.” Tickets can be purchased at aeglive.com and ChrisYoungCountry.com.

Chris Young Debuts “Sober Saturday Night” Music Video

Chris Young has released the music video for “Sober Saturday Night,” the follow up to Young’s eighth No. 1 single, “Think Of You,” and the third track to be released from the chart-topping ACM-nominated album, I’m Comin’ Over. “Sober Saturday Night,” featuring Country Music Hall of Fame® member Vince Gill, is written by Young with Brad Warren and Brett Warren.

“As we were going into the studio I knew I wanted someone to guest on ‘Sober Saturday Night’ for the guitar solo and harmonies,” shares Young. “Vince Gill was the perfect person for the song, and I was humbled when he agreed to be on it. I’ve always been a fan of his voice and his guitar playing and he killed it.”

The newly released music video is directed by David Poag and filmed in Culleoka and Columbia, Tennessee. It features Young relating the story of a couple’s tumultuous relationship. Watch the music video at smarturl.it/sobersaturdayvideo.

Young recently performed “Sober Saturday Night” on NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starting Jimmy Fallon” with Vince Gill and The Roots. This fall he’ll embark on the second leg of his headlining “I’m Comin’ Over Tour” with 25 shows from coast-to-coast

2016 British Country Music Awards Nominees Announced

bcma orginal1WITHOUT

The nominees for the prestigious British Country Music Awards have been announced.

This event has attracted and become the benchmark for many artists who were previously unknown to the Country music fans who just attend the many events around the club scene and as Country music in the UK grows more and more young acts have been enticed to the genre and so these awards recognise those up and coming artists both here and abroad as well as the more celebrated performers. They are open to all.

Members of the British Country Music Association will have the final say on the winners when voting takes place.

Of the nominees Ben Earle gets three nominations including two with Crissie Rhodes as part of The Shires. Nathan Carter gets another nod for Entertainer of the Year, he was nominated too in 2014 and 2015 as was Raintown who must be doing something right, they have four nominations this year, one for Entertainer and the other three in Video, Album and Group categories. Gary Perkins, who recently won CCN Band of the Year also gets a nomination in the Entertainer category.

Newcomers to the awards nominations are The Southern Companion, Ashton Lane, Thorne Hill and Red Sky July. A spokesman said: ‘The quality of the British acts who have come to the fore since British Country music has stepped up to the mark means we shall be soon listening to more of our own acts rather than importing them from across the world. We can match the US with quality, we just need to get them publicized more. The likes of The Southern Companion, Holloway Road, The Shires and Ward Thomas are creating waves and it is no wonder the large recording companies have opened offices in London.’

For more details of the Awards Show and the Best of British event to be held the day before at the same venue in London or go to bcmawards.co.uk.
