Chris Young has one of this summer’s hottest tickets and over the weekend, he brought his Raised On Country Tour to the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey.
Performing for 21,500 fans, Young delighted the audience with a 90-minute set that featured 19 songs. Upping the ante with a massive stage production that included videos walls and vibrant lighting, Young was full of energy as he belted out hit after hit.
The packed amphitheater went crazy when Cassaadee Pope, who performed earlier in the day, joined him to sing their chart-topping duet, “Think Of You.”
Another highlight of Young’s set included his performance of his top 10 (and still climbing) current single, “Raised On Country.” A video montage of stars such as Kane Brown, Florida Georgia Line, Brett Young and Lauren Alaina talking about what makes them country played on the screens as Young transitioned into the song.
Chris Janson provided direct support to Young and delivered a set that was full of energy and charisma. It’s impossible not to have a good time when Janson is performing.
His 45-minute set his biggest hits as well as a few new tracks that will be featured on his forthcoming album. His latest single, the breezy “Good Vibes,” set the tone for his entire performance.
Dylan Scott, who is spending the better part of the summer on Young’s tour, opened the main stage. Performing hits like “Hooked,” “My Girl” and “Nothing To Do Town,” Scott had fans dancing and singing along.
Prior to the main stage performances, Walker Hayes, Cassadee Pope, Payton Taylor and Dylan Schneider performed as part of the 92.5 XTU 35th Anniversary Show.
