With the countdown on to the September 17 release of his forthcoming album, A.M., Chris Young revealed the album cover and song titles today. “I couldn’t be more excited to share this with my fans,” said Chris. “We just finished the cover last week and got the songs sequenced so this is truly ‘hot off the press,’” he continued.

A.M. features 11 new songs, including the hot new single, “Aw Naw.” Chris co-wrote six of the songs including “Aw Naw” and the title track. “There’s a lot of fun on this album and that’s why I wanted to call the album A.M.,” said Chris. “Like the song says, ‘the whole world’s asleep but we’re wide awake in the A.M.” Fans can get an early listen to the song by catching Chris on tour this summer.

So has anyone else wondered exactly why Blake Shelton and Toby Keith didn't perform at each other's tornado relief concerts?

Blake performed his Healing In The Heartland benefit back on May 29 and Toby Keith had his Oklahoma Twister Relief show on July 6. I never got the feeling that they were dueling benefits between two Oklahoma boys or anything like that, but you do kind of have to wonder why two proud Oklahoma natives didn't join forces to help the other raise money for the state they love.

“The first concert they did, that Blake and those guys did, was wonderful because it was a TV show and it pumped a lot of money in quick and fast,” Toby told reporters. “I just couldn’t do it five or six days after because it was just too soon for me to be downtown playing music.
