Chris Young joined Brad Paisley‘s Beat This Winter Tour for shows in Norway and Sweden in March. In an exclusive interview with Taste of Country Nights, Young dishes on the advice the ‘I Can’t Change the World’ hitmaker gave him before taking the international stage.
“Where I went last time, everybody spoke English — I went to the UK, Ireland, Great Britain,” recalls Young. “I was asking Brad, ‘What do you want to give me a heads up on?’ and he said, ‘If they’ve learned a song, they will sing it at you in perfect English, but none of them speak it.'”
While it’s a strange piece of advice, one can imagine it would be very useful while onstage, because even though fans may be singing along with ‘Aw Naw’ doesn’t mean they’ll understand any onstage banter. “It’s just kind of wild,” Young continues, “It would be like me learning something in Korean. It’s very strange, but it’s so cool.”
