After Strep Battle, Chris Young Performs ‘I’m Comin’ Over’ on ‘Ellen’
After a rough bout of illness and a few canceled shows, Chris Young was finally feeling well enough to stop by Ellen and perform his No. 1 hit “I’m Comin’ Over” on Monday (Dec. 7). Fans wouldn’t be able to tell he’d been battling strep throat, as the artist launched into the tune with confidence.
His smooth, deep voice rolled over the notes with ease, proving that he may have finally beaten the sickness that caused him to cancel his last three shows in 2015 over the preceding weekend. He beamed any time he wasn’t singing, clearly happy to be back in the saddle.
Young posted on his Facebook page Dec. 3 announcing the cancellation of shows in Duluth, Minn., Rochester, Minn. and Green Bay, Wisc., with an accompanying photo of different medications, saying “this is my life right now. Been trying to beat this thing so bad” and promising to make up for it at his shows in January.
The singer's album, also titled I’m Comin’ Over, debuted at the No. 1 slot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart in late November, selling 57,000 copies in its first week — his first No. 1 album. The new record, his fifth studio album, was co-produced by Young and Corey Crowder, and the artist says it’s his most personal yet, featuring several songs inspired by people he has dated. It also includes a couple of notable duets, like one with the iconic Vince Gill called “Sober Saturday Night” and another with Cassadee Pope, “Think of You.” Fans will likely get to hear Pope and Young sing the duet live on tour, as Pope is joining Young on the road in January.
