Chris Birthday/Fan Project



CMA Fest is June 10th-13th this year. Chris' birthday is June 12th. In honor of CMA Fest and Chris' birthday I have decided to do a special Fan Project for Chris. I did this for Lady Antebellum last year and it was awesome. Charles, Dave and Hillary loved it too.

My idea is to put a scrapbook together filled with pictures, notes, letters, things Chris has accomplished throughout his career, etc. I'm going to put everything into a scrapbook and give it to him during CMA Fest. If I get to go to his Fan Club Party, I'll give it to him then but there's a chance that I may not be at the Fan Club Party in which case I'll give it to him when I do see him.

I want this to be as fan interactive as possible. It's a fan project so I need help from YOU, the fans. What I need is pictures from Chris concerts, notes, letters, anything and everything you want included. Email me anything you want included at floridacountrygirl@gmail.com. I have a very good photo printer so if you email any pictures they will turn out really well.

I want to have everything in by May 1st so that I have plenty of time to put the book together and any last minute things can be put in.

If you have any questions you can tweet me at @chrisyoungfans, @jessicazelenak or email me at floridacountrygirl@gmail.com

Want to win a phone call from Chris?



How would you like to win dinner and flowers? How 'bout a phone call from Chris Young? Well Chris and his team have decided to do a contest and the winner will win a $75 dinner gift card, flowers and a phone call from Chris on, wait for it, Valentine's Day. You can go to Chris' official site for more information and the rules. Here is what is posted on the Official Chris Young Message Boards about it:

"
Grand prize includes Dinner, Flowers and a phone call from Chris


The response to TMIWTB has been overwhelming and we want to share some of the stories with you! Fans, both male and female, are writing Chris and stopping him at shows to tell him how his new single and video, THE MAN I WANT TO BE, has influenced their lives. Their personal stories are both touching and heartbreaking. Some tell how they sing THE MAN I WANT TO BE to their loved ones; others say the words to the song hit home and served as a wake up call; men and women request it at shows and make special dedications on the radio in hopes it will make an impact on a floundering relationship.

Can you relate to the song? What’s your story? Did it change a life or create hope that things will get better? Ladies, does it describe the man you hope to find? We want to know. Send it to us at chrisyoungcountrynews@yahoo.com with TMIWTB Story in the subject line before midnight (CST) January 22. Include your full name, address, daytime telephone number and email address. Five entries will be chosen from all qualifying submissions and will be posted online for fans to choose their favorite. The stories will be posted anonymously with a link on Chris’s website, newsletter, and myspace. The winner will be determined by the entry receiving the most votes and announced no later than February 7 – just in time for Valentine’s Day!


Grand prize includes:

$75 dinner gift card
Flowers sent to address provided
*Phone call from Chris!

Questions? Send them to chrisyoungcountrynews@yahoo.com."


You can find the rules and any other information you might need at his website. So what are you waiting for! Get your entries in!

Happy New Year!!!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!!
I hope everyone had a fantastic time ringing in the New Year. Here's to all the wonderful and awesome memories we made in 2009 and to all the new memories we are going to make in 2010. Like Brad Paisley tweeted, "Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one." I know I'm going to focus on writing a good one. I'm thinking that 2010 is going to be a time for reinvention.

I have a lot of things planned for this blog for 2010. I have some ideas for making it more interactive and a lot of fun. So keep checking back for some new stuff. And don't forget to follow Chris Young Fans on Twitter(@chrisyoungfans) as well as Chris himself(@chrisyoungmusic).

Good night to all of you and let's start 2010 off with a bang.
