MTSU Young Cafe Pathways marker

Multiplatinum country entertainer and Murfreesboro, Tenn., native Chris Young stands next to the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development's new Tennessee Music Pathways marker unveiled Wednesday, Jan. 27, outside the new MTSU learning lab and live entertainment venue that bears his name. The sign, revealed during a special livestreamed ceremony outside the Chris Young Cafe, details the former MTSU student's accomplishments. Young's marker for the statewide initiative, which identifies, interprets, promotes and preserves Tennessee’s musical heritage, is the second on the MTSU campus; the Center for Popular Music at MTSU, located inside the Bragg Media and Entertainment Building, received its Pathways marker in November 2018.
