Chris Young will perform a new single tonight on A Home for the Holidays with Celine Dion. The special will feature stories of children adopted from foster care. Chris is thrilled to be part of the special that will air on CBS. “It’s really a cool opportunity for me to be a part of the A Home for the Holidays special for CBS, because not only is it with two people that I have a lot of respect for artistically in Celine Dion and Ne-Yo, but it’s bein’ able to do a holiday special that’s not just themed around country music and they’re havin’ a country artist. So I was really, really excited to be a part of it and get a chance to do it. And on top of all of the cool musical side to it and everything else, you know, it’s bringin’ to focus, too, adoption, at a time where a lot of people are makin’ those holiday memories with family. So it’s a great tie-in, and I think it’s a special that people will enjoy the music, and it’ll also make ‘em think.”
