Chris Young fans have a lot to look forward to. In addition to new album Losing Sleep coming out this Friday, new Chris Young tour dates just hit his website.
Dubbed the Losing Sleep 2018 World Tour after the album, the first leg of the trek kicks off Jan. 11. Right now, Young has 18 dates announced. But given its called a world tour and none of those dates go outside the United States, bet on many more coming down the pipeline.
For now though, Young has dates around much of the East Coast and a few Rust Belt states. Those 18 dates stretch through February 24 from Maine to Florida and Minnesota to Missouri.
Lanco and Kane Brown join Young on the first leg of the tour. Lanco has a hit on their hands with “Greatest Love Story,” and Brown just notched his first No. 1 at radio with “What Ifs,” a duet with Lauren Alaina.
Tickets for all of the shows go on sale Oct. 20, which is the same day his seventh album Losing Sleep comes out. For his part, Young already has nine No. 1 singles on radio. And his last record, 2015’s I’m Comin’ Over, took Young to new career heights. The album landed him an Album Of The Year nomination at the ACM Awards. He even earned a Grammy nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Think Of You,” a duet with Cassadee Pope.
Young co-wrote every track on the upcoming album. He released the lead single “Losing Sleep” earlier in the year and since released three more songs off the upcoming record.
Young was at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas when the shooting occurred. He told Entertainment Weekly that the tragedy made him more committed to music than ever.
“When we finally got out and were safe, I did have a conversation with my family, my manager and my road crew about whether or not to play — because I had a show Wednesday in Fresno,” Young says. “And I decided, for me, music can heal and that my decision would be to go play the show. Everybody will be dealing with this for a long time, and everybody will find different ways to cope, and for me, it’s through music.”
