Chris Young Celebrates Gold Album, No. 1 Single in Nashville
Chris Young was the man of the hour on Tuesday night, August 30, as friends, family and his hard-working team gathered at Nashville's aVenue for his Neon Jubilee celebration. The party was in honor of the singer's recent success with his sophomore album, 'The Man I Want to Be,' going gold, as well as his latest chart-topping hit, 'Tomorrow,' which was the first single from his newly-released third album, 'Neon.'
"This is the first time I've had more than one thing going on at a time, as far as having a No. 1 party, and going into it celebrating having a new record and a gold record on the last album," Young told Taste of Country prior to the start of the party. "All that stuff kind of came together all at once. This is my first gold record ever. I didn't have any idea of what that's like."
"It's kind of like when I had my first No. 1 party," he continued. "I didn't really know what to expect. I had been to them a lot, but I never had to actually stand up there and say anything intelligent. I just kind of looked at people and clapped; they got the plaques. I'm sure it will be a little bit different from that because not only are we celebrating multiple things, but also something for me that's a benchmark as an artist. Getting your first gold record is really, really special."
'Tomorrow' became Young's fourth consecutive No. 1 hit, following in the footsteps of 'Gettin' You Home (The Black Dress Song)', 'The Man I Want to Be' and 'Voices.' Also on hand to celebrate his latest chart-topping single were Young's co-writers on the tune, Anthony Smith and Frank Myers. The tune has become the best-selling digital track of Young's career to date, having received over 750,000 digital downloads.
Young's next single, 'You,' is set to impact country radio on September 12.
