Chris Young Teases Duet With Alan Jackson (We Think) on New Christmas Album

Chris Young’s first-ever holiday album, It Must Be Christmas, is set to drop on Oct. 14. While Chris has remained pretty tight-lipped about the songs and guest artists featured on the album, he did tease the song “There’s a New Kid in Town” on Twitter this morning, and it sounds like Alan Jackson has made a guest appearance.

Chris sat down with Nash Country Daily last week and mentioned that his favorite Christmas album as a child was Alan Jackson’s 1993 Honky Tonk Christmas.

“Yeah, definitely I have a favorite holiday album,” says Chris. “There’s a whole album to me, and I’ve referenced it a lot, but that Alan Jackson Christmas record to me was great—it was that and the Beach Boys’ Christmas album. Those two things had to be played or it wasn’t Christmastime at my house. That was it. I can tell you I did not cut this, but the one that always makes me laugh is Alan’s ‘Please Daddy, Don’t Get Drunk This Christmas.’ I was actually walking through a supermarket singing it at as a kid at one point. My mom was like, ‘You have to stop singing that. People are going to think there’s something wrong.'”

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
