ABOUT CHRIS YOUNG: Recently inducted as the newest member of the iconic Grand Ole Opry, Chris Young achieved another milestone in 2017 with the release of Losing Sleep, his second consecutive studio album to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart. At the age of 32 the RCA Records artist has ten No. 1 singles and seven albums to his credit, including the Platinum-certified Neon and 2015’s Gold-certified I’m Comin’ Over, which earned multiple ACM, BBMA, CMA, CMT, Grammy and RDMA nominations and scored three consecutive chart-topping singles. A prolific creator, Losing Sleep is Chris’s third project in less than two years and the title track is his eighth No. 1 as a songwriter.
Named “one of his era’s finest traditionalists” by the Associated Press, Chris has quickly become an international ambassador for country music, performing to packed houses around the world including the sold-out C2C Festival in the UK. With a hit-packed set that highlights his ten chart-toppers — including back-to-back No. 1s “Losing Sleep,” “Sober Saturday Night,” “Think Of You,” and “I’m Comin’ Over” — and seventeen Gold/Platinum certified projects, he’s headlining the Chris Young Losing Sleep 2018 World Tour, with more than 40 arena and amphitheater dates into the fall.

ABOUT MORGAN EVANS: Morgan Evans’ first U.S. single “Kiss Somebody,” co-written by Evans with Chris DeStefano (“That’s My Kind of Night”) and Josh Osborne (“Leave the Night On”), was the Top 3 most added single upon impact at country radio and debuted on Spotify’s Viral Chart at #15 in the US and #26 globally. Born and raised in Australia, the singer/songwriter is now chasing his dream halfway across the world. He has already begun receiving critical praise from outlets like Rolling Stone and Billboard and was recently selected as iHeartCountry’s first ever Australian “On The Verge” artist. Citing Keith Urban, Garth Brooks, Led Zeppelin and The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band as his formative influences, Evans has been crafting relentlessly hopeful and wholly infectious music since the age of 13. His raw talent and undeniable on-stage charisma earned him spots early in his career touring with artists such as Alan Jackson and Taylor Swift while still in Australia. Now having signed with Warner Music Nashville/Warner Bros. Records, Evans is bringing his engaging live show all over the world. Built around a loop pedal setup, it allows him to play solo with the presence and energy of a full band. Named an artist to watch in 2018 by outlets including Billboard, CMT, Pandora, SiriusXM, The Tennessean and more, Evans is currently in the studio working on his forthcoming album with songwriter/producer Chris DeStefano (Carrie Underwood, Brett Eldredge, Dan + Shay, Luke Bryan).
