Named “one of his era’s finest traditionalists” by the Associated Press, Young quickly has become an international ambassador for country music, performing to packed houses worldwide, including the sold-out Country to Country Festival in the U.K.

Recently inducted as the newest member of the iconic Grand Ole Opry, Young achieved another milestone this year with the release of “Losing Sleep,” his second consecutive studio album to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart. With seven albums to his credit – including the 2015 gold-certified “I’m Coming Over,” which earned multiple award nominations and scored three consecutive chart-topping singles – “Losing Sleep” is Young’s third project in less than two years.

Next year will become another banner year for the 32-year-old neotraditionalist with his 2018 world tour. After a tremendous response to the initial winter run, Young extended his “Losing Sleep” tour with another 13 dates in April and May, including Missoula.

The hit-packed set will highlight Young’s nine chart-toppers, including “Gettin’ You Home,” “Voices,” “Tomorrow,” “I’m Comin’ Over” and “Think of You,” and the tour also will feature special guests Kane Brown and Morgan Evans.

Multiplatinum-selling vocalist Brown is the only artist in history to simultaneously top all five Billboard Country Charts and is the best-selling new country artist of the past three years. He continued his record of having every single, extended play and album reach No. 1 on iTunes with his recently released single, “Heaven.”   

Evans’ first U.S. single, “Kiss Somebody,” was the top-three, most-added single upon impact at country radio and debuted on Spotify’s Viral Chart at No. 15 in the U.S. and No. 26 globally. Born and raised in Australia, the singer/songwriter has crafted music since the age of 13 and now is chasing his dream halfway across the world.
