Chris Young Honored By CMA

Chris Young Gets Honored By The Country Music Association.

The CMNB team is so very proud of Chris Young. He will be honored on January 29th by the Country Music Association with the coveted Triple Play Award for his #1 hits “Voices,” “Tomorrow,” and “You.”

The award recognizes songwriters who have written three number-one songs within a 12-month period.

As well as the award, the CMA selected Young as a featured artist to help further the popularity of country music overseas. In February, Young makes his inaugural trip to the U.K. and Ireland as part of the Country Music Association’s Songwriters Series with stops in Dublin, Belfast and London. The series is set to be recorded and broadcast at a later date on BBC Radio 2.

I Can Take It From There,” is Young’s latest single from his third album NEON.
