The Sign That Chris Young Has Arrived—Scalpers

Chris Young opened his headlining Liquid Neon Tour Thursday night (Nov. 15) at Nashville's fabled Ryman Auditorium—about a half hour north of Chris' hometown of Murfreesboro, Tenn.

And like at most of his hometown shows, Chris saw his parents and grandparents in the front row.

But the hot ticket also attracted scalpers, who showed up to sell tickets outside the venue. Fans sent Chris pictures of the scalpers, whose presence has annoyed some country artists here recently, especially Eric Church.

But not Chris Young.

Chris told the crowd he wasn't sure that he would see the day that he would be famous enough that scalpers could make a buck from his concert tickets.

Congrats, Chris, you've made it.
