Chris Young is enjoying every minute on his first major headlining Raised On Country Tour. He had some specific criteria for the opening acts he chose for the tour, and as Chris tells us, Chris Janson and the others all fit the bill. ["I've always said I want people to come early and stay late when I had a tour, so being able to have him, LoCash, Dylan Scott, Jimmie Allen, being able to put people like that on my tour . . . It's still really weird for me to say, by the way. Just going, 'Oh yeah, it's my tour and so I'm inviting these people out . . .' I'm just glad they didn't hang up on me, and they're all so incredibly talented."] SOUNDCUE (:24 OC: . . . so incredibly talented.)

The Raised On Country Tour rolls on to Pennsylvania and New Jersey this weekend.

Chris continues climbing the charts with "Raised On Country," the lead single and title track from his upcoming studio album.
