Our Virtual Gala will be a night to remember!

Chris Young has accumulated an impressive list of accomplishments, including membership in the iconic Grand Ole Opry, 2 Billion on-demand streams, and 12 Million singles sold. Named “one of his era’s finest traditionalists” by the Associated Press, Chris Young has quickly become an international ambassador for country music, performing to capacity crowds around the world. With a hit-packed set that highlights his eleven chart-toppers — including back-to-back No. 1s “Losing Sleep,” “Sober Saturday Night,” “Think Of You,” and “I’m Comin’ Over.”


Join us from the comfort of your own home for a night of impact and entertainment like no other! Whether you’re hanging in your PJ’s or hosting a watch party with our incredible Gala in a Box (exclusive to Great Futures Gala sponsors), you won’t want to miss the biggest night of the year to help Middle Tennessee youth.
