Chris Young Joins 'Billion-Air Club,' Teases New Music During CMA Fest

Chris Young officially joined the "Billion-Airs" club. He was surprised onstage during his Artist of the Day play at CMA Music Fest with plaques commemorating his more than two Billion career streams and 12 Million singles sold. Chris shared the honor with his fans saying, "This is thanks to every single person here who has bought a CD, streamed a single or come to my concerts – I can’t thank you enough for all the support you’ve shown me and can’t wait to share more music with you soon!"

Chris shared new music with fans during the weekend's CMA Fest. On Thursday (June 6th), the Grand Ole Opry member stood in the circle for an emotional performance of "Drowning," a personal song written with Corey Crowder and Josh Hoge. On Saturday (June 8th), Chris took the stage at Spotify House at Blake Shelton's Ole Red where he welcomed Lauren Alaina to the stage for the first-ever performance of their duet, "Town Ain’t Big Enough." Both songs will drop to digital and streaming services in the coming weeks and will be found on his upcoming album, Raised On Country, releasing later this year.
