Chris Young Funds Annual Scholarship at Middle Tennessee State University

Chris Young Funds Annual Scholarship at Middle Tennessee State University

Chris Young is coming over . . . with a big check for Middle Tennessee State University.

The Murfreesboro, Tenn., native (34 miles southeast of Nashville) and former MTSU student created an annual scholarship for recording industry students at his alma mater. Chris’s gift will allow MTSU’s Department of Recording Industry to award a yearly scholarship to a rising junior or senior.

“MTSU helped to give me a foundation for the music business and I want this scholarship to help other students who are looking to take a similar path,” said Chris.

Chris, who recently released his first holiday album, It Must Be Christmas, is also giving back along his remaining 2016 I’m Comin’ Over Tour stops. Running through Dec. 10, fans are encouraged to bring a new toy or book to his concerts, with everything donated to Toys for Tots in the local market.

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!”
