Chris Young is working with officials at Middle Tennessee State University on the new Chris Young Cafe, which will open on the Nashville campus this fall. According to a press release shared on Tuesday, the new community and dining space will feature two raised platform stages and is surrounded by windows, allowing for natural light. It will be located in the Woodmore Building, in what used to be known as the Cyber Cafe, and is an easy walk from the Bragg Media and Entertainment Building. “MTSU will always hold a special place in my heart,” says Young, who attended the university in 2005. “It helped me launch my music career and I’m glad for the opportunity to give back to the University.” In addition to helping fund the renovations Young began an annual scholarship for recording industry students in 2016.
