Chris Young will Rock the U.K. & Ireland

Heading to the U.K. & Ireland with the CMA Songwriter Series


January 15, 2013 – Nashville, TN – Chris Young will be honored on
January 29th by the CMA with the coveted Triple Play Award for his #1
hits “Voices,” “Tomorrow,” and “You.”  The award recognizes songwriters
who have written three number-one songs within a 12-month period.

As a Triple Play honoree, it is a natural fit for CMA to select Chris as
a featured artist to help further the popularity of country music
overseas.  In February, Young makes his inaugural trip to the U.K. and
Ireland as part of the Country Music Association’s Songwriters Series
with stops in Dublin, Belfast and London. The series is set to be
recorded and broadcast at a later date on BBC Radio 2.

“I Can Take It From There,” Young’s latest single from his highly acclaimed third album NEON, recently released to country radio and is already Top 20 on the radio charts.

ABOUT CHRIS YOUNG: 2013 is off to a great start with
Chris Young not only continuing as headliner of his Liquid Neon Tour
stateside, but also taking his music to an international level with
performances slated in Ireland, the U.K., and Australia.   The Grammy
nominated vocalist continues to accumulate more career milestones with
last year’s highlights including TV performances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Talk, and the 47th Annual ACM Awards on CBS, appearances on the Grammy Nominations Concert Live on CBS, and CMT Artist of the Year
