Andies FabulistWith the XTU Anniversary Show just days away – here’s a chance to get to know your headliner a little better.

Did you know Chris Young …

  1. … won a reality show?  He did! Chris was the big winner on Nashville Star in 2006!
  2. … is a huge fan of CHRISTMAS! One of Chris’s favorite childhood memories is driving around with his family and looking at Christmas lights.
  3. … is a bit of a klutz. Chris had to cancel an appearance at CMA Fest in 2014 when he was cutting an apple and accidentally cut his hand – it was really bad.
  4. … almost died on an airplane. The year before the apple incident, Chris had a cut on his leg. While traveling, he went into septic shock on the plane. When they landed, he was immediately transported to the ICU and had to have emergency surgery.
  5. … loves him some southern fried chicken. Chris is a Tennessee boy, so they know how to do it right!
