Chris Young: 11 Years After Nashville Star

He's Still Here Because of His Fans

On Tuesday (May 2), Chris Young took to Facebook to share some news about the new music he’s been working on and his current travels on Jason Aldean’s tour.

But why Tuesday?

Because it was the day he won Nashville Star when he was just 20 years old.

“This is the 11-year anniversary of me winning Nashville Star, thanks to you guys, and being on RCA, and it’s the reason why I’m still there, is because of y’all. So, thank you very much for that,” Young said.

Young won the reality TV show in 2006, when Wynonna and Cowboy Troy co-hosted, and Phil Vassar and Anastasia Brown were judges.

A few months after winning, Young released his very first country song that he co-wrote, “Drinkin’ Me Lonely.”
