CHRIS YOUNG CLAIMS NATIONAL SPOTLIGHT, SETTING PERFORMANCES ON GOOD MORNING AMERICA AND JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! FOR NEW CD, NEON, OUT JULY 12
“Tomorrow” certified GOLD with more than 550,000 downloads
Nashville, TN…(July 6, 2011)…With less than a week to go until the release of his highly anticipated third album, NEON, Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Chris Young is readying for what will be a jam-packed week of media appearances and tour dates.
On Tuesday, July 12, Young will celebrate the release of NEON with his first appearance on ABC-TV’s Good Morning America where he’ll perform his GOLD selling smash single “Tomorrow.” The single, which is at #5 on the Billboard and Mediabase charts, was recently certified by the RIAA with sales surpassing 550,000 digital downloads.
That same day fans can also get an intimate behind-the-scenes look into his busy world when Young’s “A Day In The Life” debuts on AOL Music and The Boot. The cameras were rolling in Nashville during CMA Music Fest at Young’s 10th annual fan club party and first appearance at LP Field in front of a packed house of 65,000 concertgoers.
While in the northeast, Young is also planning appearances on Fox News and Better TV. He’ll also entertain fans with a full band set from The Headliner in Neptune, NJ the night NEON releases.
Afterwards, Young will head south to join Jason Aldean’s sold-out My Kinda Party tour with stops in Orange Beach, AL (7/14), Tampa, FL (7/15), and West Palm Beach (7/16) with additional dates booked throughout the remainder of the year.
Only two weeks later, Jimmy Kimmel Live! will welcome Young to the stage on July 27 where he’ll perform two songs from his new CD, NEON. Audience tickets can be requested at http://www.1iota.com/show/view/Jimmy_Kimmel_Live. The show broadcasts on ABC-TV weeknights at midnight EST.
