Tennessee Native Chris Young Donates Toys to Gatlinburg Families


Tennessee native Chris Young is doing his part to give back to the Gatlinburg families who fell victim to the recent devastating wildfires. After already partnering with Toys for Tots for the holiday season, Young decided to focus his efforts by gifting unwrapped toys from his I’m Comin’ Over Tour to the children of Gatlinburg. Joining Young in his mission is CMA.

“Tennessee is my home and the families of Gatlinburg have lost so much – I’m glad to have the opportunity to help bring smiles to the children here at Christmastime,” said Young.

“We are asking our industry colleagues to give so that children who have nothing left have something to hope for this holiday season,” said Sarah Trahern, Chief Executive Officer of CMA.

Members of the trade association are encouraged to bring unwrapped toys to the annual member party on Tuesday, December 13 at CMA’s new corporate offices, 35 Music Square E., Suite 201, Nashville. CMA will be accepting donations through Friday, December 16 during regular operating hours (9:00 AM-5:00 PM/CT). On Tour Logistics a Division of Averitt Express will transport the toys from Nashville to Gatlinburg for free on Monday, December 19.
