Chris Young At Grand Ole Opry
Chris Young is a country singer/songwriter best known for his song “Gettin' You Home (The Black Dress Song).” Young landed a recording deal after winning the 2006 season of the TV singing contest Nashville Star.
Young grew up in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He was always interested in music and performing. He continued writing songs and touring when he went to college, eventually dropping out to pursue a musical career. Young auditioned for Nashville Star in Houston and went on to win the competition, which earned him a recording deal with RCA records. Two songs from Young's self-titled debut made country charts, “Drinkin' Me Lonely” and “You're Gonna Love Me.” Young really hit hit stride with the release of his next two albums, The Man I Want to Be in 2009 and Neon in 2011. Those albums produced 5 consecutive No. 1 singles, including “Voices,” “Gettin' You Home,” “The Man I Want to Be,” and “Tomorrow.” Young's songs show off a diverse range of styles, from sultry and swoon-worthy to pop-tinged party ballads and classic country. Young's songwriting talents have received the best kind of attention from the industry, and Young has opened for Alan Jackson and Rascal Flatts and joined Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert in tour. In 2011, Young won ACA Awards for Breakthrough Artist of the Year and Single of the Year for “Voices.”
