Chris Young has had plenty of success with his career but what he cherish’s most is getting a compliment about his music from one of his hero’s.  Here’s what he had to say about Alan Jackson:  “Yeah, it’s wild when people that I look up to say they like my music or they’re a fan of it. And I mean, even people that you’ve been on tour with. I mean, I actually saved a soundbite of Alan Jackson talkin’ about how much he liked…I did a version of ‘Wanted’ when they, like, inducted him as a thing of honor, and I was like, nervous as hell, ’cause I’m like, ‘If I forget the words to “Wanted” in front of Alan Jackson, this is gonna be so awkward!’ And he actually went on and was like, ‘Man, if he’d been around, he should cut that song.’ I was like…I kind of freak out a little bit over that, you know? That’s somebody I grew up listenin’ to, and it happens from time to time when you’re a new artist comin’ up. I mean, you’re gonna run into people that you’ve listened to on the radio your entire life. So, it’s pretty wild.”
