NASHVILLE, TN –July 30, 2013 – As his hot new single “Aw Naw” races up the charts and his soon-to-be-released fourth album A.M. becomes available to pre-order today on iTunes, Grammy-nominated vocalist Chris Young recently took a musical journey with multi-platinum selling, Emmy-nominated entertainer Michael Feinstein for NPR’s Song Travels. Young is the first artist in the Country Music genre to join the esteemed program, whose past guests include such luminaries as Bette Midler, Liza Minelli, Mark O’Connor, and David Hyde Pierce.
Taped in Los Angeles last year, NPR Song Travels with Michael Feinstein explores the ultimate journey singers and songs take with one another. Chris, who was recently awarded the CMA Triple Play Award for having written three No.1 songs in a 12-month period, explores his musical past, present and future, recounting how music and the art of songwriting have shaped his own journey.
During the one-hour program, the 28-year old shares one-of-a-kind performances of his No. 1 hits “You” and “Gettin’ You Home.” He also joins Feinstein at his grand piano to offer a thrilling, off-the-cuff interpretation of the 1960’s classic, “I Left My Heart In San Francisco.” Listen to a stream of the broadcast HERE.http://www.npr.org/2013/07/26/205853...n-song-travels
"Chris is a shining and versatile musical luminary with whom I truly enjoyed collaborating,” said Feinstein. “He's a resonant songwriter, and we had fun doing an impromptu performance together. All in all it was a memorable experience."
