Chris Young entertained his first-ever headlining concert at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN, over the weekend. Young played until after 11 pm which included songs from the beginning of his career to honoring the military/vets in the venue by performing “The Dashboard”. The show was the 33rd sold-out show of the “Chris Young Losing Sleep 2018 World Tour”. The RCA Records Nashville artist has had the opportunity to headline the city’s most esteemed venues, including Ryman Auditorium (2012) and Ascend Amphitheater (2015). Bringing his headlining tour home to Nashville and Bridgestone Arena has been a dream come true for the 33-year old.
The night was capped off with surprise guests such as Cassadee Pope who performed “Think of You” with Young and Brad Paisley performed “I’m Still a Guy”.
Earlier in the show, Young told the crowd, “I’m going to be saying Thanks a lot tonight.” Native to Murfreesboro, TN, Chris also gave stories from his days as a rising country singer paying his dues, which paid off ultimately given to the audience’s joyful reaction to the singer. Young owned the crowd in every song he performed and kept the show moving by talking to the audience as if they were in his home.
Opening acts, Morgan Evans and Kane Brown gave the crowd more reasons to keep the party alive by performing their fan favorite tunes. Evans also brought out his superstar wife, Kelsea Ballerini, to perform with him on one of his songs. His album “Things That We Drink” is set to release on October 12th, which includes his rising single “Day Drunk” and #1 song “Kiss Somebody.” Brown sang his monstrous #1 songs “What Ifs” and “Heaven” to a roaring crowd along with songs from his previously released self-titled album. Brown will release his new album “Experiment” on November 9th.
Nashville’s headlining show closed a weekend of arena tour dates that also included a sold-out stop at Biloxi’s Mississippi Coast Coliseum. After a few days at home in Nashville, Young returns to the road with “Losing Sleep 2018 World Tour” dates in Charleston, SC (9/27), Greensboro, NC (9/28) and Philadelphia, PA (9/29).
