The newly added performances will commence with a show at the Ford Center in Evansville, IN on October 25. Young will make stops in cities like Detroit, Norfolk, and Knoxville, weaving his way over to the East Coast before wrapping with a performance in Manchester, NH on December 8.
The "Losing Sleep Tour" is the first headlining arena tour of Chris Young's career. It initially kicked off in January 2018, featuring 18 dates throughout North America with guest appearances by artists Kane Brown and Lanco.
The tour was named for Young’s latest project, Losing Sleep (2017), a follow up to his chart-topping 2015 album I’m Comin’ Over. Losing Sleep reached the number one spot on the country charts and was released shortly after Young’s induction into the Grand Ole Opry.
The expanded dates will include supporting appearances from country artists Dan + Shay and Morgan Evans, and dance/electronic artist Dee Jay Silver.
Who Is Chris Young?
Christopher Alan Young was born in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He showed interest in music from a very young age, performing in children’s musical theater. As he grew older, Young joined his high school’s choir program and eventually broke out into performing on his own at local clubs and restaurants.
Young first stepped into the spotlight in 2006 as a contestant on USA Network’s reality competition series Nashville Star. He went on to win the competition and was subsequently signed to RCA Records Nashville, releasing his self-titled debut album the very same year. His single “Drinkin’ Me Lonely” peaked at the number 42 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
His second album, The Man I Want to Be, dropped in 2009 and included the hit single “Gettin’ You Home (The Black Dress Song).” The track became Young’s first number one single, earning the singer a Grammy Award nomination for Best Male Country Vocal Performance. He released the single, “Tomorrow,” in 2011 from his third studio album, Neon. The track became Young’s first platinum selling single. Neon also included hit singles “You” and “I Can Take It from There,” both of which debuted at the number one spot.
The country singer has gone on to release several more albums including A.M. (2013), I’m Comin’ Over (2015), and Losing Sleep (2017). He also dropped a Christmas album, It Must Be Christmas, in 2016.
In August 2017, Young was invited by country music legend Vince Gill to become an official member of the Grand Ole Opry. He was inducted by award-winning country artist Brad Paisley on October 16, 2017.
