Chris Young is returning to his roots in Rutherford County, Tenn., for his latest track, “Famous Friends.” Available to stream/download starting this Friday, Nov. 20, Chris’s new single, featuring Kane Brown, impacts country radio at the start of the new year.
Written by Chris with Cary Barlowe and Corey Crowder from a headline tour stop in Tampa in 2018, Chris and Kane first teased the track on social media. The autobiographical song mentions Rutherford County, where Chris grew up in Tennessee, and Kane’s hometown of Hamilton County along with Nashville’s Davidson County – a.k.a. Music City.
“This song is a piece of me, and it means a lot because it’s honest and it’s real-life,” shared Chris. “Plus, Kane and I are good friends and being able to have that history together, it adds a whole other level to the track. ‘Famous Friends’ is one of my favorite songs – it’s personal and it’s a lot of fun, so I’m glad it’s getting out there for people to hear it.”
An anthemic tribute to the names, faces, and legendary stories that make up each hometown, “Famous Friends” is Chris and Kane’s first collaboration since working together on Kane’s 2017 song “Setting the Night On Fire.”
