Chris Young Is First Country Artist to Join Grammy’s ReImagined Series
Chris Young can add another first to his list of accomplishments. The singer is the first country artist to participate in ReImagined — a new, online series launched by the Grammy Awards.
Each episode highlights artists of all genres talking about and performing a Grammy-winning hit. Young chose Eric Clapton‘s ‘Change the World,’ which won three Grammys in 1996, including Record of the Year.
“The one bad thing about picking a song like ‘Change The World’ is it’s got so much cred and history … and it’s like, ‘Man, I hope I don’t mess this up,'” Young concedes of the tune, which also appeared in the film, ‘Phenomenon.’ “But it really was [a song] that just spoke to me. I think people … are going to get that I love the song and was just trying to kind of tip my hat to it.”

Young’s latest album, ‘A.M.’ debuted at No. 3 on the charts. The record’s first single, ‘Aw Naw,’ is in the Top 10 and climbing.
Young is on the road with Brad Paisley for the fall leg of Paisley’s Beat This Summer tour. He will also join George Strait for a few dates on Strait’s farewell The Cowboy Rides Away tour. See all of Young’s upcoming shows here.
