Young, Cracker Barrel combine forces

Wednesday, September 27, 2017 – Chris Young and Cracker Barrel teamed up to produce a five-part docu-series, "Chris Young Losing Sleep Cracker Barrel Series," the first of its kind for the brand.

The series, which debuts Sept. 28 on the restaurant chain's YouTube channel, features weekly episodes taking fans on a behind-the-scenes journey as Young wrote, recorded and performed.

Young will exclusively release a deluxe version of his new album, "Losing Sleep," which features the bonus track "Encore," at all Cracker Barrel stores nationwide and online on Oct. 20.

This is Young's third studio album in less than two years and the first project where he has co-written every song. Young collaborated with Liz Rose and Jon Randall, while continuing to work with Josh Hoge and co-producer Corey Crowder. "Encore" was co-written with Hoge and Lindsay Rimes.

CD review - I'm Comin' Over Chris Young has enjoyed steady success from his previous four releases, and there's no reason to suggest that "I'm Comin' Over" won't do the same. But that doesn't mean that Young is doing anything all that different from what's au courant. Young's go to has always been his full-sounding, big-bodied voice, and that remains intact here throughout these 11 songs, 9 of which he had a hand in writing. His voice is front and center (that's apparent ...
