Country music’s own Chris Young, with the help of Stars For Stripes and the Minot Exchange, was reunited with Wounded Warrior Scott Lilley last week. Scott accompanied Chris in 2009 for Great American Country (GAC)’s television special “Stars For Stripes: Wounded Warriors Return” when Chris went to entertain the troops overseas. The pair was reunited at a CD signing at the Minot Air Force Base before Chris’ show at the North Dakota Fair later that evening.

“It was awesome to see Scott again and always great to be around the brave men and women who serve our country,” says Young.

Chris serves as a board member of Stars For Stripes, a non-profit organization that provides entertainment to deployed American Forces in remote areas. Check out the picture of the pair, and the Lilley family, reunited at Chris’ CD signing last week:

Chris Young Hosts a Virtual Meet & Greet with Fans


After signing autographs and hosting a fan club party for fans — events that, combined, lasted over nine hours at CMA Music Festival in Nashville — Chris Young had to bid adieu to hit the road for some tour stops. However, this did not keep Young from showing his gratitude to his fans he had to leave behind in Nashville.

Young utilized Netwave Technology while sitting backstage awaiting his set on Miranda Lambert‘s “On Fire ” Tour so that he could spend a tenth hour with his fans through a virtual meet and greet session. Fans continued to wait in line to meet Young, but this time, they communicated with him via video chat, where Young took a minute to speak to each individual fan and sign a digital autograph for them. As if this wasn’t enough, Young then went to Twitter and announced a Skype session with CMA Music Festival attendees while he was in Chicago. Young made history with his selfless actions, as he was the only artist this year to host a virtual meet and greet from Fan Fair Hall at CMA Music Festival.

Miranda Lambert made her first-ever headlining tour stop at the Bridgestone Arena last weekend during her “ON FIRE” tour. For her encore she brought out just a few friends along with her husband, Blake Shelton, Jerrod Niemann, Chris Young and her Pistol Annies for a group performance of “King Of The Road.” Turns out Blake can’t snap and she makes fun of him for it right in front of the packed crowd.

Welcome to Nashville, Artist Concepts!


What could be a better combination than a successful business manager, a hit songwriter, and a chart-topping recording artist? That is precisely what Becky Harris, Anthony Smith, and RCA recording artist Chris Young asked themselves when they teamed up to create Artist Concepts, a production and artist development company. While all three will be searching for new talent, each brings a unique skill set to the table and will handle their specialized aspect of the company as well.

Artist Concepts recently signed alumnae of Belmont University, Brinley Addington. Anthony Smith is currently accepting song submissions through e-mail at artistconcepts@yahoo.com. Brinley has also signed a publishing contract with Razor & Tie. To get a sneak peek at Addington, you can visit his website, www.brinleyaddington.com, follow him on Twitter @Brinley_, and climb aboard the ship for the Blake Shelton & Friends Cruise, as Brinley was just added to the line-up.

We would like to wish Artist Concepts and Brinley Addington the best of luck as they begin their journey together. We are looking forward to hearing big things from this camp in the near future!

RCA Nashville artist Chris Young is showing his true colors today. He’s supporting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital by raising money through the auction of a hand-made quilt made by his very own grandmother, affectionately nicknamed “Nanny.” It’s a one-of-a-kind quilt which he’s auctioning off to support the premiere children’s research hospital in the United States.

The quilt, which highlights many of Chris’ singles of his career to-date, is up for auction on his site right now. Bids are being accepted under the “Chris Chatter” forum of his official message board.

“I think it’s really cool that Nanny has taken up the cause to help raise money for these incredible St. Jude kids who are fighting for their lives,” said Young. “I hope my fans will check out her handmade quilts each month and consider making a bid to help support St. Jude.”
