Chris Young Gets All His Famous Friends Together for His New Album

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…

After announcing the album, fans were giving a new song to check out – “Rescue Me.”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
