Chris Young headed to the Big Apple on Wednesday (Aug. 8) to not only stop by the set of Good Morning America, but to make a visit to the set of Live With Kelly and Ryan where he performed his new single, "Hangin’ On."

Regular host Kelly Ripa wasn’t there to enjoy the sweet country sounds — she was on vacation — but fill-in host Maria Menounos along with regular host Ryan Seacrest seemed quite pleased to welcome the star to their stage.

Wearing an all-black ensemble, Young started off the performance with his distinctive sly smile, and then went on to tear into the song which is featured on his current album Losing Sleep.

Chris Young Has One of the Sexiest Voices in Country

A trip to New York can tire anyone out, but Young is just starting what should be a busy weekend of concert dates, including stops in, not coincidentally, New York and West Virginia. From there, the Grand Ole Opry member will prep for the start of his Losing Sleep World Tour next month, including a much-anticipated show at Nashville's own Bridgestone Arena on Sept. 22. Young will be joined on tour by openers Dan + Shay, Morgan Evans and Dee Jay Silver.

“I would love to say, ‘Yes, I always knew,’ but the truth is I didn’t,” Young says in a recent interview about if he ever dreamed he would be this successful. “I was, and I still am, excited that I get to play music for a living, That’s an incredibly humbling and lucky thing when that’s what you want to do and people like your music and show enough to make that a possibility.”
