Bio: Chris Young

With a dark baritone well beyond his years and a keen ear for the melodic country music of his childhood, Chris Young went from Nashville Star champion to actual Nashville star over the course of just a few years. Young won the reality show competition in 2006, securing a recording contract with RCA. After a slow start, he hit radio paydirt with his second record, 2009's The Man I Want to Be, featuring the sweet, seductive smash "Gettin' You Home (The Black Dress Song)," his first single to reach number one on the Billboard Country Airplay charts. Over the next decade, he stayed at the top of the charts with subsequent smashes like "Tomorrow," "You," "Neon," "I'm Comin' Over," and "Losing Sleep," songs that established his credentials as an old-fashioned crooner. This success led to an induction to the Grand Ole Opry in 2017. Young remained a hitmaker into the 2020s, reaching number one again in 2021 with "Famous Friends," a duet with Kane Brown. The grandson of onetime Louisiana Hayride performer Richard Yates, 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 had -- 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 Ten 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 Ten hit that was also the title track to his fifth album, which saw release in November of that year. "Think of You," a duet with Cassadee Pope, followed "I'm Comin' Over" to number two on Billboard's U.S. Hot Country chart, while the Vince Gill duet "Sober Saturday Night" went to number 31 later that year. During the holiday season of 2016, Young released It Must Be Christmas; it peaked at four on Billboard's Country Albums chart. He released his sixth album of originals, Losing Sleep, in October 2017. Young began releasing material from a new project in 2019, with "Raised on Country" reaching number five on Billboard Country Airplay while "Drowning" peaked at 25. Young bounced back to number one in 2021 with "Famous Friends," a duet with Kane Brown that reached the top of the charts prior to the August release of the album of the same name.
