Chris Young Says New Album Is Stepping Stone To Achieve Goals
Chris Young‘s new album A.M., has already produced a hit with the debut single, “Aw Naw,” which is a Top 10 hit and climbing on the charts. This is great news for Chris, but he tells us he has a few other goals he’d like to accomplish with A.M. “I would be lying if I said that at some point…you know, I’ve been lucky enough to have a Gold record that at some point I don’t want a Platinum one. There’s definitely a lot more goals for me to reach and a lot of things that I need to achieve as an artist I think that are left on the board for me. There’s a lot of things left for me to do — and I think this record’s just another step in that direction. I think one of the things that I’ve always done before is have at least one or two fun tempos, but they’ve never been the songs picked as singles. And I really went out of my way to make the tempos on this record stand out. It’s why we led with ‘Aw Naw.’ And I think that’s probably the most important thing that I did on this record that makes it different from what I’ve done in the past. And it’s fun. I mean, I just had a lot of fun makin’ this record. You listen to it top to bottom, and I think you can tell.”
Chris continues on tour with Brad Paisley through November. He will perform at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville on October 8th.
