Scary Details on Chris Young’s Life Threatening Illness
It seems Chris Young‘s recent illness was much more serious than we knew, even life threatening at some points. Chris is back home and doctors have released him for the road starting with Brad Paisley’s tour stop August 22. Click to read the scary details.
As the story began last week, Chris was on a flight to Montana for a show when he became ill. Upon arrival at the airport, he was rushed by ambulance to the hospital with a leg infection. All seems a little overblown for a leg infection, doesn’t it?
Young was affected by a bacterial infection as a result of a small cut on his leg. The singer-songwriter was traveling to a Montana tour date on Tuesday, Aug. 13 when he went into septic shock and was taken to the hospital in Denver.
Glad to get the ok from docs to return to the road later this week with @BradPaisley starting Aug 22. And Redding, CA I’ll see you Sept 8!

Doctors advised Chris to take a week off to rest the leg, before he rejoins Brad Paisley’s “Beat This Summer” tour. And of course, if you’re part of Brad Paisley’s Tour you know the good natured ribbing is coming.
Hoping @ChrisYoungMusic feels better and gets back on the road soon. Facelifts can really be painful the first few days after, I hear.

In a more serious moment, Brad also offered an update on Chris Young’s condition and just how serious infections can be. Brad lost a family relative to a staph infection.
