“…It may be not only Young’s voice, but his ever present sincerity, that keep this recording artist a fan favorite.” Lubbock Avalanche Journal
Chris also partnered with Military Warriors Support Foundation to present two Purple Heart recipients and combat wounded heroes with the keys to beautiful, mortgage-free homes. Former United States Army Sergeant Michael Williams was welcomed during Young’s headline set at Lubbock’s United Supermarkets Arena and Retired United States Army Specialist Cody Derryberry joined Young onstage from Tulsa, OK’s BOK Center where both were recognized and honored for their service and sacrifice to our country. The military heroes were greeted with thunderous applause from the appreciative crowd.
