Chris Young Cranks Up Chicago with Largest Crowds in Windy City Smokeout’s History

Chris Young, “one of the strongest, most distinctive voices among country’s current crop” (Billboard), cranked up Chicago over the weekend as he headlined Saturday’s Windy City Smokeout. More than 12,500 people crowded downtown Chicago, the festival’s largest audience to-date, as Young delivered a hit-packed set with fan favorites including “Tomorrow,” “Aw Naw,” “Voices,” “Who I Am With You” and “Lonely Eyes” plus new smash, “I’m Comin’ Over.”

Chicago was the third date on a four-day run. Next up for the Grammy nominated RCA Records entertainer are headlining dates in Westbury, NY (7/16), Mount Pocono, PA (7/17), Webster, MA (7/18) and Pomona, NY (7/19).
