Chris Young has announced that his next album, Famous Friends, will arrive August 6th.

Chris says, “I know I’ve said it before, but I honestly can’t say it enough – I am so excited to be releasing my new album.” 

The title of his 8th studio album shares the same name as his hit song with Kane Brown, and it turns out there will be more famous friends on Famous Friends. The new project will include his collaborations with Kane, Lauren Alania, and Mitchell Tenpenny – as well as tracks featuring background vocals from Sarah Buxton, Hillary Lindsey and Dan + Shay‘s Shay Mooney.

Chris says it was working with all those stars that help solidify the album’s title, “There are so many incredibly talented artists, songwriters and producers – all friends of mine – who helped make this album possible. Having friends share their talents as collaborators, songwriters, producers and more, it’s only natural to call the album Famous Friends.”

Famous Friends will include, the title track, “Raised On Country,” “Drowning,” “Town Ain’t Big Enough” and 10 additional songs…
