Sony Music Nashville artist Chris Young invited a small group of industry friends to a sneak peak of his new stage show and production this week (April 23) during rehearsals at Bandit Lights in LaVergne, Tenn. The new stage includes a video wall, four elevating multi-light displays, a boardwalk and other surprises. Young flawlessly performed his many hits (and future hits) for the guests, as well as, a special acoustic performance of “Text Me Texas.” Young is gearing up for his headlining dates, in addition to the upcoming Dierks Bentley 2014 Riser Tour.
