Southwest Airlines unveiled the new aircraft commemorating 30 years of service in Tennessee. This would be cool for West Jet or Air Canada to do. The airline celebrated 30 years of being in TENNESSEE with a specially painted aircraft and flight from Nashville to Memphis.
YOUNG performed his #1 hit single, "I'm Comin' Over," and then the two sang their current duet, "Think of You," for guests while in the air.
Before the flight, Columbia Nashville artist Maren Morris performed for guests at a SOUTHWEST reception, and Republic Nashville's A Thousand Horses performed as the airline revealed the aircraft to guests.

Young posted a photo to FACEBOOK, saying, "Awesome time TODAY with SOUTHWEST AIRLINES. And thanks to Cassadee Pope for joining to sing our Top 20 (this WEEK) song 'Think Of You!'"

Capacity crowds enjoyed a 75-minute hit-packed set from the ACM nominee, including Young’s seven No.1 singles. Special guest and duet partner Pope joined Young onstage to perform their exciting new single, the Top 20 and climbing hit, “Think Of You.” Pope's set earlier in the evening featured her Platinum-certified breakout hit “Wasting All These Tears” and a Billy Joel cover of “Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song)."

Chris Young’s “I’m Comin’ Over” tour with special guest Cassadee Pope travels to Baltimore, MD and Utica, NY the weekend (27/28 Feb) before the hit maker headlines the Houston Rodeo next week.

Hailed by the New York Times as “excellent” and “one more…strong chapter in a steady career full of them,” the praise for Young’s I’m Comin’ Over (UK iTunes) is especially notable as the album has earned the artist and co-producer four Academy of Country Music Awards® nominations for his fifth album. 
The lead single and title track is certified Platinum by the RIAA.
