Performing for a sold-out arena or amphitheater is a big rush for a country star, but the hours waiting to go on stage can get pretty boring. That's why Chris Young carries along his own entertainment -- the virtual golf game Golden Tee.

"If you’ve ever played virtual golf in a bar, that’s probably what you played," Chris says, "and it’s in a road case."

In addition to helping Chris and his band pass the time before shows, the Golden Tee game is always fun to show off to people visiting backstage.

Says Chris, "People are always like, 'Aww, you have anything cool out here?'  And I’m like, 'Well, we’ve got this road case that turns into a Golden Tee machine.' People are like, 'Oh, my God!' ‘Cause it’s the only one."

Chris takes his live show and his Golden Tee game to Waco, TX Friday night.
