Chris Young recently shared how he feared at one point that his record label might end up dropping him.

According to Taste of Country, the country star explained how things became rocky a year after his 2006 win on Nashville Star. Young had signed with RCA records after the competition, and prepared to start his music career.

Young commented on the shaky situation that began to develop in 2007. “In 2007, I was probably thinking, ‘Please dear God, don’t let the label drop me.’ There was a very real possibility at one point,” he added.

The reason for this growing unease for Young came after his two singles released to less-than expected results. “Drinkin’ Me Lonely” and “You’re Gonna Love Me” failed to perform well on the music charts, which discouraged Young and cast doubt on his dream.

Thankfully, things turned around for the country artist, and Young can only look back at that time now and see how far he’s come. “Now, it’s funny to look back and laugh about that,” he admitted humorously. In 2019, Young is preparing for an exciting new tour. The Raised on Country Tour will see Young joined by Chris Janson, Dylan Scott, LoCash and Jimmie Allen. The tour will kick off on May 16.
