Middle Tennessee native and country music star Chris Young gave his fans a special treat yesterday when he announced via exclusive video that he will make his first Nashville headlining appearance from the Mother Church of Country Music, the historic Ryman Auditorium, on November 15, 2012. The premiere headlining appearance, which includes special guests Thomas Rhett and Joanna Smith, is the first stop on Chris’ upcoming Liquid Neon Tour and adds to an already stellar year of high profile TV performances, hit singles, and awards nominations for the baritone-voiced singer. Thomas Rhett will open the show. Rhett’s self-titled debut EP hit #1 on iTunes Country Albums Chart.
While Young has played the Ryman as part of the Grand Ole Opry, this historic show will mark his headlining debut on the celebrated stage. Born and raised in Murfreesboro, this momentous occasion holds a special place in the heart of this middle Tennessee native.
“The first time I set foot on the Ryman stage was an unbelievable experience,” says Young. “I am so grateful for the support of my hometown crowd all of these years and saying I can’t wait for this show is an obvious understatement.”
