Chris Young admits that he pushed himself creatively and vocally on his newest album, ‘A.M.,’ and it paid off.

The singer sold out a show at the House of Blues in Los Angeles on Monday (Sept. 30), but instead of basking in the glow of a financially successful show, the singer donated $25,000 of the ticket proceeds to two of his favorite charities.

Young chose St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Stars for Stripes as the recipients of his generosity. “It was a fun night of music and being able to give money to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Stars for Stripes makes it all that much better,” the singer said after finishing off the night with the donation.

It sounds like it was a fun night … and morning, as his show went into the early hours of the next day. The ‘Aw Naw’ singer’s fans are diehard — they began lining up Monday morning for the nearly two-hour show. It featured six songs from Young’s new album, including ‘Aw Naw’ and all of his No. 1 singles, plus a cover of ZZ Top’s ‘Sharp Dressed Man.’

While in the City of Angels, Young is making his second appearance on ‘Ellen.’ He performed ‘You’ on the show last year, when he was introduced as one of country music’s most reliable hitmakers.
