Chris Young hospitalized with leg infection

Chris Young Cover imageI hate so see anyone in the hospital, but even more so, when it’s one of my favorite entertainers. I received this press release a few days ago – I do apologize for not getting it up sooner, but as many of you know, we have had a death in our family, and have been making funeral arrangements, expecting family in, etc. It’s been a difficult time. My 90 year old mother-in-law died on Wednesday night, Aug. 14, 2013. I appreciate the kind words from friends who did know. Everyone has been great. Now, here’s the press release – with a few pictures I couldn’t resist throwing in for you.

Fair Chris Young 125[Press Release]  Singer-songwriter Chris Young is in a Denver area hospital with a leg infection.  He is listed in stable condition. Tonight’s headlining show in Kalispell, MT has been cancelled as well as his performances on Brad Paisley’s “Beat This Summer Tour Presented By Cracker Barrel Old Country Store” on Aug. 15 in Penticton, BC, Aug. 16 in Mission, BC and Aug. 17 in Brownsville, OR. He is expected to resume touring in Redding, CA on Aug. 21.

While the origin of the infection is unknown, Chris will remain in the hospital for at least the next 24 hours. Chris was en route to Kalispell, MT when the symptoms set in and he was taken by ambulance to the hospital.

Chris Young’s new single, “Aw Naw” is quickly climbing the country singles charts and is the first single from his forthcoming album, A.M., which will be released Sept. 17 on RCA Records Nashville.

Chris Young VA 119I did try to find an update on this press release, which I received a few days ago. The only thing I could find were a few Tweets from Chris:

ChrisYoungMusic Sorry “central line” not direct line

ChrisYoungMusic Ok last message before more antibiotics, it’s not a Pic line…it’s a direct line in my jugular. #youdon’twantone #trust me

ChrisYoungMusic Still in the ICU, but wanted to say thanks for all the well wishes. Sorry I had to cancel some shows guys.

I’ll be back with more as soon as I can. I have family coming in, and the funeral to get through tomorrow. I do appreciate so much the kindness and understanding I’ve had from eveyrone.
