Young delivers new single
Monday, January 11, 2016
– Chris Young is out with a new single, "Think of You," a duet with Republic Nashville singer and The Voice winner Cassadee Pope.
The song is on Young's "I'm Comin' Over" album, "Think of You" was co-written by Young, Corey Crowder and Josh Hoge and is available at country radio today for an official airplay impact date of Jan. 25. "Think of You" is the follow-up single to the title track.
"I love having Cassadee Pope on this song," said Young "I think she is a phenomenal singer and is the exact, perfect way to complete that song the way I wanted. It's one of my favorite tracks on the record."
Recalling how the song came about, Young said, "I was playing an acoustic show with Cassadee, and she started her first song, and the minute she opened her mouth, it clicked. We were right in the beginning stages of 'who do we get to do this?' and I said, 'I'm asking her right when I get off this stage.' She's awesome, and I'm so glad she said 'yes' because she was my first choice, and I think people are going to be really into this song."
"Knowing that we'll get to perform 'Think of You' together for all of our fans definitely builds another layer of excitement to heading out on tour with Chris," said Pope.

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 ...
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. ...
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. ...
