In the last five years, Chris Young has gone from being just another struggling country artist to scoring three top five albums, four straight number one singles, and a growing stack of awards, as well as a 2010 Grammy nomination.
All that success has changed his life — but it’s still new enough that Young can remember the days when the top of the charts seemed like they were a million miles away.
Williams, who compared a golf match between President Obama and Republican House Speaker John Boehner to “Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu,” attempted to clarify his remarks through a post on his website.

Her recording career spans 15 years and eight albums, but Terri Clark might just now be hitting her stride.
Clark’s latest album ‘Roots and Wings’ finds her tapping into her own experiences for a largely self-written batch of original tunes — and earning some of the best reviews of her career along the way.
