Bio

The grandson of onetime Louisiana Hayride performer Richard Yates, country singer/songwriter Chris Young hails from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and first drew the public's attention when he appeared on the Nashville Star television show in 2006. Young's singing abilities first surfaced in children's theater productions in grade school, and with his family's full support, he threw himself into learning all he could about music, and country music in particular. By the time he was a senior in high school he was already playing clubs in the Nashville area, and his self-released debut album was out before he even graduated from high school. Young attended college at Belmont University in Nashville and then Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, all while still managing to do some 150 live shows a year. He was offered and accepted a gig fronting the house band at Cowboy's in Arlington, Texas, and it was there that a fan kept insisting that he audition for the Nashville Star TV show. Young eventually made the trip to Houston and passed the audition, and the whole affair paid off handsomely with a contract from RCA Records. Young's debut single, "Drinkin' Me Lonely," a song he wrote with Larry Wayne Clark, was released in 2006, followed later in the year by a Buddy Cannon-produced album called simply Chris Young. A second album, The Man I Want to Be, produced by James Stroud, appeared in 2009. Young's third album, 2011’s Neon, may not have gone Gold -- The Man I Want to Be did -- but it did have "Tomorrow," a heart-wrenching ballad that was his biggest hit to date, reaching number one on the Billboard country charts and cracking the pop Top 40 on its way to going Platinum. "You," the second single from Neon, also went to number one on the country charts, and two other hits followed: "Neon" and "I Can Take It from There." Young delivered his brighter, happier third album A.M. in the fall of 2013; it was preceded by the party anthem "Aw Naw," which peaked at 16 on the Billboard charts. A.M. produced two further Country Top 10 hits with the softer "Who I Am with You" and "Lonely Eyes," singles that appeared on the charts in 2014. Young returned in the fall of 2015 with "I'm Comin' Over," another Top 10 hit that was also the title track to his fifth album, which saw release in November of that year. ~ Steve Leggett
