Chris Young has announced a fall headlining tour in support of his new album Famous Friends. Titled after the LP, the Famous Friends Tour launches October 21st in Little Rock, Arkansas, and plays 13 shows into early December. Mitchell Tenpenny and Callista Clark will open the majority of dates.
“Touring this summer and playing fairs and festivals is fantastic and I’ve loved every minute of it. But being able to announce your own tour is different. People were waiting for that,” Young told Rolling Stone during an interview for an upcoming story. “There really is nothing other than people gathering and hearing music at a concert. There’s no way to replicate that. You can’t replicate it online. It’s just another animal entirely.”
Along with a few concert appearances earlier this summer, Young experienced the live buzz of a massive crowd, albeit briefly, this past Saturday in Nashville when he helped the Grand Ole Opry open Garth Brooks’ planned concert at Nissan Stadium. Severe storms cut the Opry segment short and ultimately postponed Brooks’ performance to a later date. Tickets for this tour are available online on Vivid Seats.
Young will release his eighth studio album Famous Friends on August 6th. A collection of 14 songs, it includes the Number One title track with Kane Brown, “Town Ain’t Big Enough” with Lauren Alaina, and “At the End of a Bar” with his tourmate Tenpenny.
