ABOUT CHRIS YOUNG:
Multi-platinum RCA Records Nashville global entertainer Chris Young has accumulated an impressive list of accomplishments, including membership in the iconic Grand Ole Opry, nearly 5 Billion on-demand streams, 13 Million singles sold, 12 career No. 1 singles, 22 R.I.A.A. Gold/Platinum/Multi-Platinum certified projects and numerous ACM, AMA, CMA and Grammy nominations, as well as wins for Performance of the Year and Collaborative Video of the Year at the CMT Music Awards. These accomplishments and more landed him in the Top 20 of Billboard’s top country artists of the decade.

“Famous Friends,” – Chris’s platinum-certified, multi-week chart-topping song with Kane Brown – is the title track to his “most personal album to date” (Forbes). The song earned the top spot on Billboard’s year-end Country Airplay Songs chart for 2021. In addition, the “booming duet” (Tennessean) “At The End Of A Bar” with Mitchell Tenpenny is Chris’s newest single from his 8th studio album, Famous Friends. His Famous Friends (Deluxe Edition), which features six new sides including collabs with Old Dominion and Jimmie Allen, will release on June 3.

Named “one of his era’s finest traditionalists” by the Associated Press, Chris is an international ambassador for country music, performing to capacity crowds around the world. With a hit-packed set that highlights his twelve chart-toppers — including back-to-back No. 1s “Losing Sleep,” “Sober Saturday Night,” “Think Of You,” and “I’m Comin’ Over” — the Grammy and ACM nominated vocalist’s most recent headlining tour played to over 400,000 fans in 3 countries.

 

ABOUT MITCHELL TENPENNY
Mitchell Tenpenny recently released an eight-song EP, Midtown Diaries EP, he produced Jordan B Schmidt. Mitchell co-wrote all the tracks including his smash “Truth About You” that he first previewed for his fans on TikTok. “You listen to the fans who listen to you,” Mitchell said about their instantaneous reaction as the song became the largest streaming debut of his career now with more than 60 million total on-demand streams. Mitchell can also be heard on the radio with Chris Young on their collaboration and ‘booming hit’ “At The End Of A Bar.”

Since the release of his debut single, “Drunk Me,” Mitchell has set new standards for breakout success in country music. The 2X Platinum-certified, No. 1 hit that has amassed over 550 million on-demand streams was taken from his introductory 2018 album, Telling All My Secrets, and earned him the best first week showing for any major label country debut LP. Since that time, the “winning” singer (the New York Times) was nominated for New Male Artist of the Year at the ACM Awards and Breakthrough Video (“Drunk Me”) at the CMT Music Awards and saw his “Alcohol You Later” and “Anything She Says” singles certified gold.
