ACM-nominated singer and Murfreesboro native Chris Young recently donated a portion of his touring audio equipment and accessories to the Department of Production Services at Middle Tennessee State University. The department handles event production services for campus events and University-related off campus functions.
“We are pleased that Chris chose to donate some of his touring equipment to the University,” said Joe Bales, Vice President for Development and University Relations. “This donation represents his latest efforts to give back.”
Craig Doman, Director of Production Services, added “a great big thanks to Chris Young for thinking of us. We accept his donation with gratitude and look forward to incorporating his gift into our many services,” Doman continued. “Our staff, which includes more than 100 students, will greatly benefit.”
Earlier today (Jan. 26), Young was nominated for ACM Awards for Male Vocalist of the Year and Single Record of the Year for “Tomorrow.” His current single “You” is inside the Top 5 everywhere, and he’s currently on the road as part of Miranda Lambert’s On Fire tour.
