Country Music Star Chris Young Coming to the Beaver Dam Amphitheatre
Country music star Chris Young is coming to western Kentucky! He's bringing his 2023 tour to the Beaver Dam Amphitheatre on Friday, August 11th.
I remember the first time I saw Chris Young in concert. It was the summer of 2011. Chris was part of the lineup for The Big O Music Fest at Reid's Orchard. I emceed that event and went to Chris' tour bus to find out what he wanted me to say about him when I introduced him on stage. I asked him if he wanted me to mention that he had been a contestant on Nashville Star.
He quickly said, "No."
I then reminded him it was kinda the elephant in the room and everyone in the crowd knew he had been a contestant on that particular reality talent contest. So, I said, "How about I tell them you were on Flavor of Love?" Chris laughed. He thought that was hilarious and said, "Do it!"
So, I went out on stage and said, "You all know this next guy from a TV reality show." The crowd, realizing Chris was set to come out on stage next, went crazy. They knew exactly who I was talking about.
Then I said, "Please welcome . . . from Flavor of Love . . . Chris Young!!!!!"
Granted, a lot of folks in the crowd were totally confused. But Chris and I thought it was hilarious!
