RCA Records Nashville artist Chris Young celebrated his songwriting success, when he was honored at all three of this week’s performing rights organizations’ awards ceremonies, including the ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC Awards.

Young’s multi-week No. 1 Platinum smash and title track to his current album, I’m Comin’ Over, was named one of BMI’s “Top 50 Most Performed Songs of the Year.” Earlier in the week, Young surprised his “I’m Comin’ Over” and “Think of You” co-writer Josh Hoge when Hoge was honored as SESAC Songwriter of the Year. Young also joined his I’m Comin’ Over co-producer and co-writer Corey Crowder at the ASCAP Awards Monday night where the Gold-certified track was named one of the Top 5 Songs of the Year.

Next week Young returns to the road for his headlining “I’m Comin’ Over Tour,” sponsored by CASE Construction Equipment. Dustin Lynch and Young’s “Think of You” duet partner Cassadee Pope join for the remainder of his 2016 tour dates.
