Platinum-selling country music star Chris Young kicked off the opening weekend of his “Chris Young Losing Sleep 2018 World Tour,” with three back-to-back SOLD OUT headlining shows in Indianapolis, Kansas City and St. Louis! Chris played a 90-minute, hit-packed set, with the St. Louis Post Dispatch declaring “when it’s 20 degrees outside with a cold wind whipping…the act fans are going to hear needs to deliver…country singer Chris Young did that better than the post office, FedEx and Amazon combined.” (All photos in this article by Jeff Johnson)
Proclaimed “a headliner…capable of stirring an audience in ways very few in country music can” (Taste of Country) and a performer who “seems so comfortable on stage that fans felt like they could be hanging out with him in a bar or even a living room while he breaks into oh-so-satisfying song” (St. Louis Post Dispatch), the Grammy-nominated singer welcomed his Sony Music Nashville label mates Kane Brown and LANCO as special guests for the first leg of the tour.

As the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry, Young released his highly anticipated seventh studio album, Losing Sleep, late last year. The record became his second consecutive studio album to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart. The title track, currently at #5 Mediabase / #6 Billboard and climbing on the country radio charts, is certified GOLD by the RIAA, marking the 32-year old Grammy nominated singer/songwriter’s 17th Gold/Platinum certification. On March 9, the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum will unveil the exhibition American Currents: The Music of 2017, including memorabilia from Chris’ noteworthy year.
ABOUT CHRIS YOUNG: Recently inducted as the newest member of the iconic Grand Ole Opry, Chris Young achieved another milestone in 2017 with the release of Losing Sleep, his second consecutive studio album to debut at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart. At the age of 32 the RCA Records artist has seven albums to his credit, including the Platinum-certified Neon and 2015’s Gold-certified I’m Comin’ Over, which earned multiple ACM, BBMA, CMA, CMT, Grammy and RDMA nominations and scored three consecutive chart-topping singles.
