RCA NASHVILLE artist CHRIS YOUNG has embraced the giving spirit with the creation of his annual scholarship for recording industry students at his alma mater, MIDDLE TENNESSEE STATE UNIVERSITY (MTSU). YOUNG's gift will allow MTSU's Department of Recording Industry to award a yearly scholarship for a rising junior or senior beginning this FALL.
"MTSU helped to give me a foundation for the music business, and I want this scholarship to help other students who are looking to take a similar path," said YOUNG. MTSU VP/University Advancement JOE BALES commented, "CHRIS has remained a loyal and connected MTSU alum through the years. He's returned to perform several times in MTSU's MURPHY CENTER as his music career ascended and remains generous with his time and talent, even donating some of his touring audio equipment and accessories a few years ago."
