Chris Young Announces Famous Friends Tour With Mitchell Tenpenny
Chris Young has shared his fall tour plans. Just days before he delivers his new Famous Friends album, the singer has announced the Famous Friends Tour.
Mitchell Tenpenny and Callista Clark will open 12 of the 13 announced shows, with Matt Stell joining them for a stop in Texas on Oct. 23. Payton Smith will open the tour's final stop, in Connecticut on Dec. 5.
The Famous Friends Tour focuses on American amphitheaters and arenas that are far inland from the East and West Coasts. Shows in Texas dominate (there's four of them), but stops in South Dakota, Iowa, Arkansas and Wisconsin help round out a slate of dates that doesn't stray far from the Mississippi River. The full list of stops is below.
The song "Famous Friends" is Young's latest No. 1, a duet with Kane Brown. The Famous Friends album also features a collaboration with Lauren Alaina called "Town Ain't Big Enough," and another with Tenpenny called "At the End of the Bar."
In July, Young performed a free concert for friends in Nashville, a portion of which was recorded for the music video for "At the End of the Bar." That video will be revealed on Friday (Aug. 6), the same day Famous Friends arrives in full.
