Born in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Chris Young has had country music running through his veins from the very beginning. Since winning Nashville Star back in 2006, Chris Young's career has really taken flight. Of his four currently released albums, three of them went to #3 on the charts or higher, and the fourth made its way to #6. The 2009 release of The Man I Want To Be that made its way to #6 on the US chart was actually Chris Young's best selling album, as it became Gold certified.
Young's musicianship reminds me of Blake Shelton in terms of professionalism, Brad Paisley in terms of talent, and George Straight in terms of creativity. His vocals are deep and sometimes dark, and his sound is pure country. On becoming a musician, Chris Young has said:
"Music is why I'm here and it's something I can't live without. It's what I'm built to do."
Some of my favorite songs include Who I Am With You, Lost, & Voices.
