Chris Young first drew the public's attention when he was crowned the winner of "Nashville Star," a vocal competition show, in 2006. Following his win, he released his first album, "Chris Young," which debuted at No. 3 on the country charts. Young's sophomore album, "The Man I Want To Be," included three No. 1 hit singles, "Voices," "The Man I Want To Be," and "Gettin' You Home (Black Dress Song)," garnering him his first Grammy Award nomination.
In 2011, the country crooner achieved his first platinum-certified No. 1 single with the heartfelt ballad, "Tomorrow," from his third album, "Neon." The album featured other charted hits, including "You" at No. 1 and "I Can Take It From There" at No. 16. Young's music found its way to the mainstream charts when his album, "A.M." debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in 2013, featuring three hit singles: the rowdy No. 4 "Aw Naw," the hopeful No. 4 "Lonely Eyes," and the No. 8 ballad "Who I Am With You."
Young embraced his talent for songwriting on his most recent album, the No. 1 gold-certified "I'm Comin' Over," released in 2015. He co-wrote nine of the 11 songs, including his three Top 5 singles, "Sober Saturday Night," platinum-certified "I'm Comin' Over," and gold-certified "Think of You," which also received multiple award nominations.
In 2014, Young received worldwide attention after winning "International Act of the Year" at the British Country Music Association awards. Within the last 10 years, he has achieved 13 Top 20 singles, six platinum-certified singles, and four gold-certified albums. Now on tour, Young performs a powerhouse show, complete with melt-your-heart ballads and upbeat country hits for fans around the globe.
