Multi-platinum country music star Chris Young headlined the Key West Songwriters Festival with a show at the Coffee Butler Amphitheater on May 6.
Recently scoring the most nominations for Academy of Country Music Awards, Young’s career took off in 2006, when he won Season 4 of the TV competition “Nashville Star.” After winning, he was signed to RCA Records Nashville and released his self-titled debut album the same year.
Young’s music career skyrocketed in recent years, with hits such as “I’m Comin’ Over,” “Who I Am With You,” “The Man I Want to Be” and dozens of others.
Female fans in cut-off jeans and cowboy boots and hats filled the amphitheater as the sun set and launched another Songwriters weekend in Key West.
