Chris Young, Lee Brice Launching Co-Headlining Tour

Chris Young says he thinks he and Lee Brice are "just going to have a ball" on their co-headlining tour. And the country star tells the "Hartford Courant" he's hoping audiences have just as much fun as they do. He says their goal is for people to "come out and forget any problems they got for several hours, and listen to music." Chris adds that both he and Lee "put on a show," so, their concert is something fans "don't want to miss." The singer says he thinks they make a very strong double-bill, because they "have different sounds and slightly different fan bases that complement each other." He also admits this tour is "just a really cool opportunity" for both of them.

Young and Brice are launching their collaborative trek in Syracuse, New York Thursday night. The Brothers Osborne are also on board to open most dates.
