Country hunk Chris Young will receive a Triple Play award from the Country Music Association (CMA) on January 29th. The Tennessee native will receive the prestiges award for writing three #1 singles within a twelve month period. Young, who was chosen for the hits “Voices,” “Tomorrow” and “You,” has also been selected as a featured artist to help spread the gospel of country music overseas. In February, the singer-songwriter will travel to the UK and Ireland as part of the CMA’s Songwriters Series.
Since winning USA Network’s Nashville Star Season 6 in 2006, Young has released three critically acclaimed studio albums, enjoyed gold and platinum sales and reached the top of the charts five times. The singer’s latest disc Neon follows on the heels of the gold-certified The Man I Want To Be, an album that took Young from television contest winner to country music contender. Currently on a headlining tour, Young is looking to add to his hit list with “I Can Take It From There,” the fourth single from Neon.
