Chris Young to Play The Glens Falls Civic Center
Magic City Productions and CrossRhodes Entertainment are proud to announce that Country Star Chris Young will play the Glens Falls Civic Center on Friday, May 2nd.
The show will also feature Special guest Jerrod Niemann and opening act Courtney Cole.
Chris Younghas accomplished more by 28 than some artists do in a lifetime. Already a Grammy-nominated recording artist, he’s also a dynamic live performer consistently in demand, an international ambassador for his genre, a talented songwriter with five Number Ones to his name – by the way, he wrote four of them – and a handsome charmer to boot. Now, on the cusp of his fourth album, A.M., (out September 17 on RCA Nashville), the man known for his classic baritone and melt-your-heart ballads has suddenly revealed himself to be king of the good time, too, with lead single “Aw Naw” electrifying crowds and storming up the charts.
Young co-wrote six of the eleven tracks on the record, including lead single “Aw Naw,” which sets the tone immediately. An irreverent story about what Young calls “an accidental party – ‘Hey, I just came to have one, and ended up staying all night,’” it’s got an addictive four-on-the-floor vibe that’s tailor made for live sing-alongs, and a tongue-in-cheek title that’s both ridiculous and ridiculously inescapable. "It’s just a slang way of saying, ‘Oh, hell no,’” Young explains. “The guy that brought it up was [co-writer] Ashley Gorley. He goes, ‘Aw naw!’ And it was like, ‘How do you spell that?’”
And for anyone who knows the real Chris Young, the party anthems on A.M. won’t come as that much of a surprise. Though he’s made his name on mature, sensitive, heartfelt hits like “Tomorrow,” “You,” and “Voices,” he is, at heart, just like any other 28 –year-old guy. “If I wanted my friends to describe me any way possible,” Young says, “it would be ‘He’s fun to hang out with.’” On his rare days off from the road or the studio, you’ll find him fishing with his dad, geeking out on music from old-school Nashville to early ‘90s New Jack Swing, sitting in with a band at a hole-in-the-wall club, or simply closing down the bars on Lower Broadway with his buddies, ordering pizza and playing song wars on the jukebox until dawn. “I’m a normal dude,” says Young. “I just happen to have a really freakin’ cool job.”
On September 25, Sea Gayle/Arista Nashville’s Jerrod Niemann Released “Drink To That All Night,” the first single from High Noon, his upcoming album scheduled for release on March 25. Currently Top 15 and climbing the country charts, the up-tempo party anthem is the follow-up to his trio of hits from his acclaimed album, Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury, which include “One More Drinkin’ Song,” the Gold-certified “What Do You Want,” and the Platinum No. 1 single, “Lover, Lover.” His sophomore release, Free The Music, hit shelves last year and featured the Top 15 single “Shinin’ On Me” and the poignant ballad “Only God Could Love You More.” Niemann has quickly become a fan and industry favorite, earning award nominations from the ACM, CMA, CMT and the American Country Awards, while headlining his own shows and touring with such artists as Dierks Bentley and Brad Paisley.
Courtney Colemoved to Nashville from her hometown of Mandeville, La., where she started performing in musical theater at age 11. When she isn't playing with her puppy Ellie, Courtney is in the studio working to perfect her voice and musical talents. She believes she is CMT's Next Superstar because she is both honest and real -- two qualities that define country music. Her musical influences include Whitney Houston, Carrie Underwood and Reba McEntire.
