In February, Chris Young’s hit single “Losing Sleep,” from his latest album with the same name, reached number one on the Country Airplay charts. His previous album, I’m Comin’ Over, was an artistic wake up call for where Young’s brand of country could go, and Losing Sleep shows the massively successful artist expanding his horizons. Traditional themes fuse with streetwise urban flair, all welded together by one of the current genre’s most classic voices.

“I think the experimentation I did on the last record was the most I had really done,” Young admits. “So with this one it was about continuing that. There’s stuff like ‘Losing Sleep’ –which is really different sonically from a lot of things in my catalog –and there are going to be things that feel more familiar, too. Each song has a unique vibe and life to it.”

Young is no stranger to success. His hits “I’m Comin’ Over” and “Think of You” (a duet with Cassadee Pope) reached number one on Country charts, and “Sober Saturday Night” (a duet with Vince Gill) was number one on Country Airplay in March 2017. In total, that brings Young up to ten number one hits and 17 Gold or Platinum certifications, helping him rake in nominations from the Academy of Country Music, Billboard Music Awards, Country Music Association, and The Recording Academy, while also leading to a massive, twice-extended headlining tour. In August 2017, Young was invited by country legend Vince Gill to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry. Brad Paisley officially inducted him in October.
