Years ago [lastfm link_type=""]Chris Young[/lastfm] was just another pretty face and voice on Nashville Star.  Then he was the fresh kid releasing a new album in hopes that country folk would give it a twirl.  Three years ago he was recording his second album and shortly after that, he became a star who has watched his songs claim the No. 1 spot on the charts over and over again.

Now, Chris is riding a wave of not one, but five No.1 hits in a row. With ‘Gettin’ You Home (The Black Dress Song),’ ‘The Man I Want to Be,’ ‘Voices,’ ‘Tomorrow’ and ‘You,’ it seems that he couldn’t miss the bullseye if he tried.  Young recently came clean about what it feels like with that kind of success.  He says:  ”To put this in perspective, [lastfm link_type=""]Kenny Chesney[/lastfm]  has never had five consecutive No. 1-s.”   “Right now, [lastfm link_type=""]Blake Shelton[/lastfm] and I are the only solo artists with an active streak of No. 1-s,” he said.

“There’s always good stuff at the top of charts. And we’ve always had our songs peak when there are these other massive songs. So I get excited and proud that my stuff is breaking through that. It’s a good feeling when you know people are not only hearing it but actually want to go out and buy it.”
