ABOUT CHRIS YOUNG: 2011 was an amazing year for Chris Young, with nominations including: CMA New Artist of the Year, American Country Awards, and his first GRAMMY® nod, in addition to five national TV appearances. With his rich, warm baritone and penchant for writing relatable, slice-of-life songs, Young has emerged as both a critic and fan favorite. In the last few months, Young has celebrated GOLD selling status for both his sophomore album The Man I Want To Be, and smash single "Tomorrow" from his new album NEON. His latest single and follow up to four consecutive #1s, “You”, is screaming up the charts. Young has been out on the road most of this year on Jason Aldean’s “My Kinda Party Tour”. Miranda Lambert has selected Chris as her special guest for her tour “On Fire” starting in January 2012.

I’ll be at the office when Ellen runs so it’s either sneak to the kitchen and turn the TV on, or set the DVR at home (or perhaps both).
