Watch Now: Chris Young explains the "cool factor" behind his latest #1 hit

No Comments

RCA Nashville“Losing Sleep,” the title track of Chris Young’s current album, and the name of his tour, has become his fourth consecutive #1 hit. At the Country Radio Seminar in Nashville on Tuesday, Chris told ABC Radio why this particular song hitting number one at this particular time is extra-special for him.

“To have the title track of the tour and the title of the new album go number one while the tour is really just ramping up — we’re only three weekends in, and as much as those weekends have been amazing, there’s so much more that we’ve announced to look forward to — I do think there is a little bit of a cool factor,” Chris told ABC Radio.

He adds that he likes the idea of telling the audience, “Hey, right now, at this moment, while you guys are here at this tour, this song is number one and it’s the name of the tour.”

Chris officially got the good news about the #1 hit this past Monday, but he admitted that he and his team started celebrating a few days before that.

“Normally, you’re trying to figure out if the song’s gonna go numberone,” he explained. “And this one was one of the few where, pretty much on Friday, everybody was like, ‘OK, it’s gonna happen.'” Like, ‘It’s there.’ So, we were kinda celebrating a little bit all weekend…and definitely will be continuing that celebration next week!”

Chris’ Losing Sleep tour, with Kane Brown and LANCO, continues Thursday night in Pittsburgh.

Reese Witherspoon reveals how an abusive relationship changed her

No Comments

By Stephen Iervolino

HBO/Hilary Bronwyn Gayle(LOS ANGELES) — Reese Witherspoon opened up to Oprah Winfrey in a new interview for Oprah’s OWN show SuperSoul Sunday about an abusive relationship that changed who the Big Little Lies star and producer is.

Witherspoon, who stars alongside Winfrey in the upcoming Disney film A Wrinkle in Time, said that the relationship was psychologically and verbally abusive, and occurred when she was very young.

Making the decision to leave her partner, whom she did not name, was “profound,” she added.

“It changed who I was on a cellular level, the fact that I stood up for myself,” Witherspoon said. “I didn’t have self-esteem and I’m a different person now. And it’s part of the reason I can stand up and say, ‘Yes, I’m ambitious,’ because someone tried to take that from me.”

Last October, as dozens of actresses came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct, Witherspoon, 41, spoke at ELLE‘s Women in Hollywood event about being assaulted as a teenager by a director. She said that the incident was not an isolated one and praised her colleagues for telling stories that they’d previously kept quiet.

Now, Witherspoon is working to tell stories of complex women through projects like her HBO series, Big Little Lies, and hopefully, inspiring others to feel comfortable defending themselves and their ideals. The word ambition, she noted, is not seen as being synonymous with being feminine, and that, she added, should change.

“[Ambition] isn’t about being selfish. It isn’t about being self-serving. It’s actually about wanting to create more and do better for communities,” she said. “An ambitious woman is not a terrifying thing.”
