Proclaimed a “headliner on his own, capable of stirring an audience in ways very few in country music can” (Taste of Country) and “one of the more commanding voices in country music” (Houston Chronicle), the Grammy-nominated singer has invited his Sony Music Nashville label mates Kane Brown and LANCO to join as special guests for the first leg of the “Chris Young Losing Sleep 2018 World Tour.” “I’m excited about getting out on the road in the New Year with Kane and the guys from LANCO,” says Young. “It’s been really cool to write, record and tour with Kane over the last year. And then to have LANCO bring their unique energy out on the road too – I can guarantee it’s going to be a great time.”
ABOUT CHRIS YOUNG: Recently invited to become the newest member of the iconic Grand Ole Opry, Chris Young has earned multiple ACM, BBMA, CMA, CMT, Grammy and RDMA nominations and scored three consecutive chart-topping singles – including his ninth No. 1 “Sober Saturday Night” with Vince Gill – from his “excellent” (New York Times) album I’m Comin’ Over (2015). He continues to set the bar even higher with the release of his brand new single, “Losing Sleep,” which amassed more than 1.25 Million on-demand streams in its first week of release. With six albums to his credit, including 2016’s It Must Be Christmas and 2015’s Gold-certified studio album, I’m Comin’ Over, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart, Chris continues to reach new heights with his hotly anticipated seventh album — Losing Sleep — due October 20, 2017. Named “one of his era’s finest traditionalists” by the Associated Press, the upcoming record will be the RCA Records artist’s third project in less than two years.
