Nashville, TN – January 15, 2018 – Platinum-selling country music star Chris Young kicked off the opening weekend of his “Chris Young Losing Sleep 2018 World Tour,” with three back-to-back SOLD OUT headlining shows in Indianapolis, Kansas City, and St. Louis! Chris played a 90-minute, hit-packed set, with the St. Louis Post Dispatch declaring “when it's 20 degrees outside with a cold wind whipping...the act fans are going to hear needs to deliver...country singer Chris Young did that better than the post office, FedEx and Amazon combined.”
Proclaimed "a headliner…capable of stirring an audience in ways very few in country music can” (Taste of Country) and a performer who “seems so comfortable on stage that fans felt like they could be hanging out with him in a bar or even a living room while he breaks into oh-so-satisfying song” (St. Louis Post Dispatch), the Grammy-nominated singer welcomed his Sony Music Nashville labelmates Kane Brown and LANCO as special guests for the first leg of the tour.

The title track, currently at #5 Mediabase / #6 Billboard and climbing on the country radio charts, is certified GOLD by the RIAA, marking the 32-year old Grammy nominated singer/songwriter’s 17th Gold/Platinum certification. On March 9, the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum will unveil the exhibition American Currents: The Music of 2017, including memorabilia from Chris’ noteworthy year.
