With Chris' strong baritone voice you could easily mistake him for the likes of Keith Whitley or Randy Travis.The man can sing!So it's a pleasure to listen to him.
Included is the very catchy and also his first no.1 hit Gettin' You Home.His voice really shines on the slow songs like The Dashboard,It Takes A Man and his fantastic version of Rainy Night In Georgia.There's also a special duet with Willie Nelson on Rose In Paradise.
He really shows of his powerful voice in the single Voices,this will give you shivers down your spine.
Chris co wrote four of the songs and it's produced by the legendary James Stroud.
The Man I Want To Be is just simple easy listening country that you can just sit back and enjoy.Highly recommended!

"The Man I Want To Be" is a great sophomore album. His first CD was good too, but in comparing the two, this newest CD portrays a much more mature choice of songs and seems to be better put together. I like the entire album from start to finish, but my personal favorite is "Voices". I also like "The Dashboard" and "The Shoebox."
Bottom line, Chris Young is a great artist and this is a great CD. Just buy it, you won't be disappointed.
One of the shining stars of the album is definitely `Gettin' You Home.' It's fun and romantic. Young's deep, rich vocals definitely help out each song, especially on this track. It's very `country' yet he has his own style. The album ends with a very relaxing song titled `Rainy Night in Georgia,' a song originally by American singer-songwriter Tony Joe White.
I'm not a diehard fan of country music but artists like Chris Young really draw me into the genre. But in the end, I don't think about what genre this album is in. It's just a good CD. The only thing I'd criticize is the length of the album. It has only ten tracks. I hope Young has longer albums in the future.
I highly recommend "The Man I Want to Be" not only to country fans but to anyone who enjoys fun, thoughtful and clever music. You won't be disappointed.
