Chris Young cranked up Chicago over the weekend as he headlined Saturday’s Windy City Smokeout. More than 12,500 people crowded downtown Chicago, the festival’s largest audience to-date, as Young delivered a hit-packed set with fan favorites including “Tomorrow,” “Aw Naw,” “Voices,” “Who I Am With You” and “Lonely Eyes” plus new smash, “I’m Comin’ Over.”

Chicago was the third date on a four-day run. Next up for the Grammy nominated RCA Records entertainer are headlining dates in Westbury, NY (7/16), Mount Pocono, PA (7/17), Webster, MA (7/18) and Pomona, NY (7/19).

With the release of his most recent record, “I’m Comin’ Over” from his highly anticipated fifth studio album, Young is just as well known for his classic baritone as he is for melt-your-heart ballads and is winning audiences across the globe.

CMA Fest Wrap-Up Day 3

DSC05671

Well, it’s almost done, CMA Fest 2015 has concluded day three.  Our third day adventure was hampered by a morning rain that caused us to miss out on some of the things we had hoped to do, but the sun quickly shone and we were back at it…  We stayed at Riverfront to check out Jason Michael Carrol, The Swon Brothers, and Parmalee.

The highlight of the day was seeing the legendary Tanya Tucker close out Riverfront’s 3rd day to a capacity crowd.  Riverfront was literally shut-down, and they couldn’t let anyone else in.  Although Tanya was at her best a decade and a half earlier, it’s been a while since anyone has seen her perform.  Although her looks have changed, she proved that she’s still got it!  She sounded amazing and it was a definite highlight to see the crowd of all ages sing “Delta Dawn” back to her.

LP field was great.  Unfortunately, you won’t see many pictures because the photo-line situation was awful.  So, instead of a ton of stellar pictures we got a few mediocre.  But Chris Young, Thomas Rhett, Brett Eldredge, Little Big Town and Carrie Underwood rocked it.  As always, Little Big Town was a favorite of ours.  “Girl Crush” was awesome!!! Can’t wait for y’all to see the show.

We’re off to Day 4 !!!
