Chris Young is up for ACM Male Vocalist of the Year at the ACM Awards this Sunday night on CBS.  He’s actually been preparing for this moment since childhood.

“I studied music, and I really, really trained and did all the vocal lessons — all that stuff, really, so that I would sound like my record when I sang live,” Chris explains.  “I feel like that’s part of what being nominated for that is, being vocalist in that category.”

He adds, “It’s really special.  That one really surprised me.  I wasn’t expecting that this year at least.”

Chris is also set to perform on the ACM Awards, airing Sunday night at 8:00 Eastern time on CBS.
