September 7, 2012 – Nashville, TN – Middle Tennessee native and country music star Chris Young gave his fans a special treat yesterday when he announced via exclusive video
that he will make his first Nashville headlining appearance from the
Mother Church of Country Music, the historic Ryman Auditorium, on
November 15, 2012
. The premiere headlining appearance, which
includes special guests Thomas Rhett and Joanna Smith, is the first stop
on Chris’ upcoming Liquid Neon Tour and adds to an already stellar year
of high profile TV performances, hit singles, and awards nominations
for the baritone-voiced singer.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, September 14th at 10AM Central and are available via the Ryman box office, ryman.com, Ticketmaster outlets, ticketmaster.com, or by calling 800-745-3000.

While Young has played the Ryman as part of the Grand Ole Opry, this
historic show will mark his headlining debut on the celebrated stage.
Born and raised in Murfreesboro, this momentous occasion holds a special
place in the heart of this middle Tennessee native.

“The first time I set foot on the Ryman stage was an unbelievable
experience,” says Young. “I am so grateful for the support of my
hometown crowd all of these years and saying I can’t wait for this show
is an obvious understatement.”

Additional information on the Liquid Neon Tour will be announced in the
coming weeks. Special guests on the tour include Thomas Rhett, whose
Valory Music Co. released self-titled debut EP includes the hits “Beer
With Jesus” and the Top 15 track “Something To Do With My Hands.” RCA
recording artist and Young’s labelmate, Joanna Smith, will open the
shows. Continue to check out www.chrisyoungcountry.com for dates.
