The WXTU 28th anniversary concert, slated for Saturday at the Susquehanna Bank Center is a free ticket but it’s a hot one just the same.
Country siren Miranda Lambert will headline the event and she’s a regular on the charts so it’s no wonder fans are doing what they can to score a ducat.
But it’s not just a Lambert event. There are a host of worthwhile performers set to play at the Camden concert. Kix Brooks, formerly of the iconic Brooks and Dunn duo, Uncle Kracker, who pulled a Darius Rucker by slipping out of pop-rock for country, Josh Thompson, Laura Bell Bundy, Eden’s Edge and Jerrod Neiman will also perform at the event.
It’ll be fun to catch each of those entertainers but don’t miss Chris Young, who has all the marks of a country star. First of all, it’s in his blood.
The emerging country recording artist’s grandfather Richard Yates was a country entertainer.
Apparently that skips a generation since Young is making his grandpappy proud.
Young’s second album, 2009’s ‘The Man I Want To Be,’ passed the 500,000 mark in sales over last summer. The disc, which has an enviable lifespan, was buoyed by four consecutive number one singles and relentless touring. Young, who crafts gritty, moving and at times boisterous country, appears to have the goods to go far in the industry.
The breakthrough album is full of sophisticated and passionate songs that deserve to be heard.
The same could be said of Young’s latest album, ‘Neon,’ which dropped in July. Young, who possesses a big, baritone, has taken some steps forward with his latest project. Young effectively straddles the line between traditional country and the poppy side of Music City, which is all over the radio today. He finds a nice balance throughout the project. He proves to be a fine writer having co-written 70 percent of the songs on ‘Neon.’
