WEEK LIFE ... IN THE Chris Young (Hitmaker) 13-19 Jan 2019 Chris Young Losing Sleep World Tour 2019 Chris Young plays UK dates in May. “ 2019 has started off with a bang — new music and lining up my new headline tour – and it’s showing no signs of slowing down, which is perfect for me because I get to do what I love — make music and play it for audiences every night. In May I’m excited to go back to the UK for my first shows since 2017! Sunday, January 13 I’ve been going nonstop since January 4 when we dropped my new single, “Raised On Country,” and today flew from Nashville, Tennessee to San Antonio, Texas to start a week of visiting country radio. The song officially impacts country radio on January 28 in the U.S., meaning RCA is asking radio to start playing the song now. I’ve got a few weeks of travel ahead of me so Porter, my 1-yr old German Shepherd, will be getting some additional skills training in while I’m out of town. I miss that little furry guy already. 54 cmp - MARCH 2019 Monday, January 14 Today was exhausting but fantastic at the same time - 3 cities in 12 hours starting with live on-air visits to two radio stations in San Antonio before driving to Austin, Texas and later flying to Dallas, Texas. It was great to see so many friends in radio and also to be back in Texas. I have family there and lived in Arlington in 2005 touring, when I could, all over the state so it felt like I was home. A great way to start the week! Tuesday, January 15 Another early morning, woke up in Dallas and visited KPLX and KSCS, doing interviews with the morning shows for both stations. We’ll be announcing my 2019 headlining “Raised On Country Tour” soon, including a show in Dallas at Starplex Pavilion, and I can’t wait to get back out on tour! After Dallas I caught a plane to Denver, Colorado where I met up with my RCA Records Nashville regional Larry Santiago. 6 radio stations across two states in less than two days. Busy week!
