Five things you didn't know about Chris Young

Country music artist Chris Young is taking the world by storm. His latest song "Lonely Eyes" has been doing great on the charts and now fans want to get to know more about him. Unless you are a diehard fan, you won't know everything about him. Here are five things that you might not know about Chris Young.

  1. Chris Young actually won the show Nashville Star and that is where he got his start. On this show, he played his original song "Drinking Me Lonely" and fans fell in love with him. This is where a lot of people learned who he was, but most fans that hear him on the radio today don't even know that he did reality TV. His season four win got him a record deal with RCA.
  2. He has done jazz, musicals and even a little bit of hip hop in his day. Young was on a show on the network Noggin that was about switching places where he had to show off his hip hop skills. Let's just say it is a great thing that he decided to stay country.
  3. Young almost chopped his hand off last year. Okay maybe it wasn't that bad, but he was using a knife to cut an apple. He does admit it wasn't a knife that should have been used for an apple. The cut was pretty bad, Young had to have surgery and fans were worried it would affect his guitar playing in the future.
  4. If you are a fan of Reba McEntire or Buddy Jewel, you might have seen Chris Young in one of their music videos. He landed roles in their videos years ago before he was able to get his country music career going.
  5. Before Chris Young realized he would be an amazing country artist, he thought about going into law and in his younger day she said he wanted to be an astronaut. Fans are happy he didn't take up those careers instead.
