Chris Young at Stir Cove


Saturday night at Stir Cove was a hot one! But I often find that I forget about the weather when I’m having such a good time. Chris Young graced the stage right on time and the crowd was more than ready for him. As always, the country shows are one big party. Long beer lines and lots of conversation. Stir Cove was also gracious enough to allow patrons to bring in an empty water bottle to refill with free water. More than necessary on a night like this. 


Young was the 2006 winner of the reality singing competition series Nashville Star. Every album he has produced since has delivered hit songs. He even became a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 2017, which is one of the highest achievements in country music. Hard to believe it all began when a couple of his buddies convinced him to audition for the show. 


It was a very special night for all, but there are two people in particular who certainly will remember this night forever. A gentleman up front decided to make this the night he proposed to his lady friend while the band played Who I am With You. Young even halted his set to congratulate the couple (she said YES!) and had the camera zoom in on her left hand so we could all check out the ring. They then played an impromptu cover of Allison Krauss’ When You Say Nothing At All. Simply beautiful. The night ended with an encore of Aw Naw, a crowd favorite. 


Ya done it again, Stir! A great time was had by all and we’re chomping at the bit for Wednesday night! Thanks again to Stir Cove, Staff, and Security! Cheers!
