The promise has been kept.
I have been a fan of Chris Young from
the beginning. Now he has finally had the
huge hit he has so long deserved. The follow-up,
the title tune to his CD, is even better.
“The Man I Want to Be” is a song and a
performance to treasure. So guess who has
his first Disc of the Day prize?

—The title tune to Chris’s new CD is a plaintive plea for
redemption. He wraps his pipes around the ballad with
enormous warmth and tenderness. I’m a believer, and
this is a star-making performance.
