“Last year on the road was incredible and I’m crazy excited to get back out there with new music and the ‘Raised On Country Tour’ and to have Chris Janson and Jimmie Allen join me on tour,” Young said.
Younghas accumulated an impressive lists of accomplishments by his 33rd birthday including membership in the iconic Grand Ole Opry, eleven career No. 1 singles, 17 R.I.A.A. Gold/Platinum/Multi-Platinum certified projects, two Grammy® nominations, three Country Music Association nominations and four Academy of Country Music nominations. As a prolific creator, Young has given fans seven studio albums in 12 years including Losing Sleep, his third project in less than two years. The title track is certified Platinum while “Hangin’ On” is his ninth No. 1 as a songwriter. Losing Sleep (2017) and I’m Comin’ Over (2015) debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart with “I’m Comin’ Over” becoming Young’s first double Platinum single.
Chris Janson is a platinum-selling, high-octane entertainer, multi-instrumentalist, award-winning singer/songwriter and the youngest living member of the Grand Ole Opry. Janson’s new song “Good Vibes” is the debut single from his forthcoming third studio album. His sophomore album, Everybody, produced his second No. 1 hit single, “Fix A Drink,” the chart-topping follow up to his No. 1 debut smash and summer anthem, “Buy Me A Boat.” His CMA-nominated song “Drunk Girl” won Music Row “Song of the Year” and has been called “the most important song to come out of Nashville in years.” Janson closed out the 53rd ACM Awards with what Rolling Stone called a “must-see performance” and sold-out multiple shows on his headlining Waitin’ On 5 Tour.
Jimmie Allen can be considered the epitome of the phrase “persistence pays off,” having laid it all on the line to make his dreams a reality. Allen’s debut single “Best Shot” is a certified hit, claiming the top spot as the No. 1 Most Shazamed song in the format for eight consecutive weeks and the No. 1 spot on country radio for three weeks, marking the first time a black artist has launched a career with a No. 1 hit with their debut single on country radio. On the heels of that historic success Allen is back with his latest single, “Make Me Want To,” which was the most added song by country radio stations in its first week (61 stations). The hot newcomer has already been heralded as one of the top “artists to watch in 2018” by Rolling Stone, Billboard, Pandora, Sounds Like Nashville, NY Country Swag, Country Music Rocks and New England Country Music and has earned spots in CMT’s “18 for 2018” Listen Up program and Bobby Bones’ Class of 2018.
