Young thanks fans following arrest, releases new song as thanks

Thursday, February 1, 2024 – Chris Young took to Instagram today to thank fans following for their support after his arrest last week in Nashville

As a result, Young fast-tracked "Double Down," from his forthcoming album, "Young Love & Saturday Nights," to release at midnight eastern time tonight.

Young was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and assault on officer offensive contact following an incident at the Tin Pan Alley in Nashville on Jan. 22.

Young released four videos, which showed him being pushed down with two hands by another person, presumably an employee of the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission, who were doing an inspection. Charges were dropped last Friday.

Young said, "Hey guys, so I just wanted to say something. You know, I'm still processing a lot through the false accusations and everything that went on in the past week. But I wanted to say first and foremost, thank you to everybody that had my back. It meant the world to me, and I had so many friends and fans reach out and say 'we got you, we don't believe you did any of this.' So it's really nice to see the charges get dismissed."

"It's not something I wish anybody has to go through ever. But, like I said, the bright spot was seeing just all the love and support. So what I wanted to do as a thank you to you guys - because this was not planned - is drop a new song from the album so you guys will have something to listen to. We're going to put out 'Double Down' at midnight ,and I really hope you guys enjoy this one. Crank it up, enjoy it - I appreciate you, I love you, and thank you."

Young was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and assault on officer offensive contact following an altercation with Tin Roof Bar in Nashville. Young was allegedly drinking at the bar when agents from the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission came in to check IDs and license cards. The TMZ website said Young questioned officers after doing a check of him.

Written by Monty Criswell, Derek George and Tyler Reeve, "Double Down" is one of 18 songs on "Young Love & Saturday Nights," releasing March 22 (Sony Music Nashville).

Lyrics include:
Double down on a good time
Paint the town, talkin' real bright
Neon redneck, head bobbin'
To the hell yeah, honky tonk sound
Get a little loud, stomp your boot heels
Talkin' plowed like a cornfield
Two steppin' shuffle, thumb on your buckle
Raisin' up trouble
There goes another double down
Double down, down, down

The title track is the current single. His headlining "Young Love & Saturday Nights 2024 Tour" will start in April.

CD reviews for Chris Young

CD review - Famous Friends Given the massive success of Chris Young's award-winning collaboration with Kane Brown on the title track, it would be an easy assumption to make that his eighth studio album would tow the same contemporary line that landed him a bevy of hits. The result is exactly that. But with some contingencies The opener, "Raised on Country," starts out with a raucous groove that may get your toes tapping for the entirety, but the lyrics devolve into some painfully tired cliches like ...
CD review - Losing Sleep Chris Young has one of the best country voices, and it's always a pleasure to hear him sing. But it's disappointing when the title cut sounds more like the groove to a Justin Bieber song than anything truly country. When, say, someone like Jason Aldean performs music with barely any resemblance to real country music, it's not that big a deal; he's not a great natural singer to begin with. 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. ...
