When you’re living the life of an entertainer on tour, great fans and great tour partners make all the difference — and Chris Young recently said that he felt blessed with both of those things when he spent the first part of the year out with good buddy Jerrod Niemann as special guests on Miranda Lambert‘s “On Fire” Tour. In fact, even though their tour with Miranda wrapped its five-month run back in June, Chris says that he and Jerrod are still missin’ Miranda.
“We miss her and her crew. I mean, everybody top to bottom on the Miranda tour was so great. And you know, we were out there with Jerrod Niemann, too, so…Jerrod and I have known each other for a long time, and it was just a lot of fun.”
Young continues, “There was more of a family vibe than anything because we’ve all known each other. You know? The entire time we were out there, just had a blast, loved her crowds. The fans that came out were absolutely amazing, and you know, we’ve got a lot of people that have followed us from her tour that we’ll see pop up on Twitter say, ‘Ahh, we loved you on the Miranda tour — we’re gonna come see you here.’ So it’s really, I think, was a great thing, and you know, I’ve talked to Jerrod about it, too. We still kinda miss bein’ out there with Miranda. It was fun.”
Chris’ latest album is NEON, which includes the title-track favorite as well as back-to-back number-one hits with the songs “You” and “Tomorrow.” Pick up your copy of NEON at your favorite retail store or online at iTunes or Amazon.
