|Country’s young crooner opens for Jason Aldean at Cruzan Amphitheater|
|This is a big week for country crooner Chris Young, and you can be a part of it. Young’s third album, Neon, was released Tuesday; his sixth single, Tomorrow, is still on the rise and may be headed to No. 1; and he performs Saturday at Cruzan Amphitheatre in suburban West Palm Beach.|
Tickets are selling fast for Jason Aldean’s My Kinda Party Tour, so don’t delay.
Here are five reasons to see Chris Young:
1- To hear ‘Tomorrow.’
Maybe you’ve been in a relationship that you know is bad for you but which is impossible to resist, or you’ve known a couple like that. Tomorrow is the fastest-rising single of his career, downloaded more than half a million times, making it Young’s biggest hit yet. Young co-wrote it with Anthony Smith and Frank Myers, and it’s a tear-jerker.
2 – Young’s approachable.
So much so that you can meet him in person. Young will be signing copies of his new CD Neon, from noon-2 p.m. Saturday, at the Walmart at 9990 Belvedere Road, West Palm Beach. The CD is his best work yet, and I especially love the title cut for its beautiful imagery. The orange of the fall, the red of a Santa Fe sunset, the yellow of a sunflower are so easy to visualize.
3 – Hat or no hat?
Young’s dropped the black cowboy hat, proving he does have hair under there. He says he did it so he can see fans better and to eliminate the shadow it casts on his face. He ranked at the top of the sexiest man list in Country Weekly with the hat, so time will tell if shedding his sombrero is a wise move. I say yes.
4 – Three consecutive No. 1 songs, beginning with ‘Getting You Home’ aka The Little Black Dress Song. This sexy love song really heated up Young’s career and set him on a upward trajectory. You’ll hear all three No. 1s, plus he’s got the answer to the local drought. Save Water, Drink Beer, off the new album, is a perfect party song for his thirsty South Florida fans.
5 – Young’s opening for Jason Aldean, one of the hottest acts out there right now. Add Thompson Square (Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not) to the lineup and you’ve got four hours of family-friendly entertainment.
