Chris Young Appears on NPR Song Travels
Chris Young might be one of the most successful acts in country music, but he has proven he is also a versatile artist. The singer recently joined with multi-Grammy winner Michael Feinstein for NPR Song Travels, making him the first country artist to participate in the esteemed program.
As part of the broadcast, Feinstein explored Young's musical journey, including the many successes he has had since winning 'Nashville Star' in 2006. The singer, who performed his hits 'You' and 'Gettin' You Home,' also joined Feinstein for an impromptu performance of 'I Left My Heart in San Francisco.'
"Chris is a shining and versatile musical luminary with whom I truly enjoyed collaborating,” Feinstein says. “He's a resonant songwriter, and we had fun doing an impromptu performance together. All in all it was a memorable experience."
Other artists who have participated in NPR Song Travels include Liza Minelli, Bette Middler and Mark O'Connor. Listen to the broadcast here.
Young's next album, 'A.M.' will be released on Sept. 17. The debut single from the project, 'Aw Naw,' is in the Top 30 and climbing. Pre-order 'A.M.' here.
