Chris Young & Kane Brown Reach Number-1 With “Famous Friends”

Congrats to Chris Young and Kane Brown as “Famous Friends” takes over the top spot on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart.

Chris, who has racked up 12 number-1s, admits that this trip to the top of the chart is a little more special because he gets to share it with his friend Kane Brown, “Always excited to celebrate a hit on Country radio but especially this song right here, ‘Famous Friends,’ going number one with my buddy Kane Brown. Just an amazing way to go right into the summer. Finally, getting to perform this back out on the road for people and being able to, you know, announce that it’s the number one song is just one of the most amazing things. So, so proud of this one. So thank you to everybody for listening, loving it.”

Kane, who also has had number-1 hits before – says it’s extra special this time because he got to reach the top with one of his musical heroes. “It means the world to me to have the number one song in the country with my good buddy Chris Young. Started covering his songs and we’ve done a couple songs together, we’ve written a lot of songs and just to have one as a number-one song Country radio, it means the world to me.”

Chris added, “Finding out you have the number one song in Country Music is such a crazy feeling. My career started with a #37 #52 #37 in that order. If you had asked me if I ever thought I’d be celebrating my 12th number one… just wow… no words. Kane Brown so proud to share this one with you brother! Thank you to anyone reading this, Corey Crowder and Cary Barlowe (my co-writers and CC is my co-producer), and all of Country Radio for sending this one to the top!!”
