Young releases emotional single "Drowning"

Friday, June 14, 2019 – Following an emotionally-charged performance of "Drowning" during his Opry appearance last week, Chris Young has released the song today.

The grief-soaked song was penned in tribute to Adam, a close friend of Chris's who passed away several years ago.

"When I wrote this song with Corey Crowder and Josh Hoge, we each thought of someone that we lost way too soon. For me, it was one of my best friends, Adam. Missing you comes in waves and tonight I'm drowning. This one is for you, brother," said Young last night on social media.

Young performed the song at the Opry, but had to step away from the mic and let his band finish the song, while he cried.

The lyrics include:
"So tonight I'm gonna pull out pictures, ones with you in 'em
Laugh and cry a little while reminiscing
By myself, I can't help that all I think about is
How you were taken way too soon
It ain't the same here without you
I gotta say, missing you comes in waves
And tonight I'm drowning

"Drowning" will be included on his upcoming album, "Raised On Country," releasing later this year. "Raised On Country" (#12 Billboard/Mediabase) is Young's latest single.

Young resumes his tour tonight at Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Mass. and tomorrow at Hartford, Conn.'s Xfinity Theatre.

However, Young's voice is just too good to waste on mere pop. ...
CD review - It Must Be Christmas Song selection can sometimes seem fairly inessential whenever chosen by a master singer. Such is the case with "It Must Be Christmas," Chris Young's new holiday collection. He sounds as perfectly comfortable with the jazzy "I'll Be Home for Christmas," where its supper club vibe takes a little of the edge off one seriously sad song, as he does with the Phil Spector rock nugget "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)." Young is also helped out by a few special guests. ...
CD review - I'm Comin' Over Chris Young has enjoyed steady success from his previous four releases, and there's no reason to suggest that "I'm Comin' Over" won't do the same. But that doesn't mean that Young is doing anything all that different from what's au courant. Young's go to has always been his full-sounding, big-bodied voice, and that remains intact here throughout these 11 songs, 9 of which he had a hand in writing. His voice is front and center (that's apparent ...
