Mother’s Day is this weekend and Chris Young thinks this is an opportunity to show your appreciation to mom. Chris is reminded of how grateful he is for everything his mom has done for him, particularly since she was a single parent for several years.
Chris Young talks about how important Mother’s Day is, “It’s a really big time of year for everybody. Even if it’s just to get to spend a little time with your mom. You know, it’s not necessarily all about, you know, getting her a gift, it’s about just saying, ‘Thank you.’ I mean, they really do shape so much of your life. Your parents do. And your mom’s always a big person. Especially for me. She raised us for a little while, me and my sister, basically by herself. Before my stepdad, who I call my dad, came in the picture, it was just her. And we . . . I never, as a kid, wanted for anything. And that was how my mom looked at everything. And that’s how a lot of moms do, and I think that’s why we have a Mother’s Day. Just some of the stuff they do, that they give up for their children, really to make sure you have a great life and a great experience as a child. It’s pretty amazing how much of their personal time they give up, and go, you know, ‘This isn’t for me, this is for my kid.'”
Chris performed Thursday, May 9th in London on his Raised On Country Tour. He’ll have some time to spend with his mom on Sunday, May 12th before continuing with his tour stateside on May 16th in Alpharetta, GA with special guest Dylan Scott.
Chris is making his way up the charts with “Raised On Country,” the debut single and title track of his upcoming album.
The Raised On Country Tour runs through mid-September where it wraps up in Jacksonville, FL.
