Chris Young made a special appearance on the Grand Ole Opry last month, using the famous radio show to introduce fans to his brand new single, the romantically-charged booty call of "I’m Comin' Over." The Tennessee native has sang on the revered stage many time before, but now that he has established himself as a consistent country hitmaker (with five Number One songs and his fifth album, I'm Comin' Over, on the way), he's starting to become a familiar face around the Opry, too.

In celebration of the Grand Ole Opry's 90th birthday, which includes a calendar full of celebratory events this fall, Young took Rolling Stone Country for a behind-the-scenes look at its inner-workings. With photographer Chris Hollo in tow, the singer-songwriter shows off the close-knit, family atmosphere that keeps the historic show running, the way fans can actually hang out with their favorite stars, and the nerve-wracking magic of performing on the same floorboards as Hank Williams, Patsy Cline and all of the country greats.
