Chris Young Is The Man I Want To Be, As New Album Hits Stores On September 1, 2009



Nashville, TN (Top40 Charts/ RCA Nashville) - Excitement over RCA Nashville star Chris Young is as sizzling as the summer temps as the man Country Weekly readers voted 'Country's Hottest Bachelor' has been heating up the radio airwaves everywhere with the irresistible groove of his smash single, 'Gettin' You Home (The Black Dress Song).' And while fans can pick up the digital single now, they can also look forward to more great music, with September 1 announced as the release date for Chris' sophomore album, The Man I Want to Be.

Helmed by veteran producer James Stroud, The Man I Want to Be delivers a powerhouse showcase for Young's inviting baritone, whether singing a duet with Willie Nelson on the Waylon Jennings classic 'Rose in Paradise,' capturing the essence of brotherly love in 'The Dashboard,' or giving voice to the title track, a beautiful Brett James/Tim Nichols-penned plea for a chance at a fresh beginning.

Other highlights include Chris' soulful, first-take reading on the timeless Brook Benton hit, 'Rainy Night in Georgia ,' in addition to three songs Young co-wrote, one of which is the playfully sexy 'Gettin' You Home,' which jumps to No 25 on the country airplay charts this week.

'Gettin' You Home' has caught fire on the airwaves, becoming the most-added new song at country radio last week, and the story continues to build, with more new airplay across the country, including such major markets as Chicago , Pittsburgh , Cleveland , Portland , and Phoenix .

The sultry groove of 'Gettin' You Home' has also been driving listeners to Chris' MySpace page where the song has racked up more than 800,000 plays.

The Man I Want to Be is the follow-up to Chris' self-titled debut album that launched the smash, 'Drinkin' Me Lonely,' and earned Young the highest selling album debut by any new male country artist in 2006.
