Chris Young and Kane Brown have topped the Mediabase country radio chart this week with “Famous Friends”, Chris Young’s 12th career #1 single and the 6th for Kane Brown.
On learning the news, Chris shared to socials: “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. @kanebrown_music so proud to share this one with you brother! Thank you to anyone reading this, @coreycrowder @carybarlowe (my co-writers and CC is my coproducer), and all of Country Radio for sending this one to the top!!! #FamousFriends #numberone.”
Written by Chris with Cary Barlowe and Corey Crowder from a headline tour stop in Tampa in 2018, the song also took home the trophy for Collaborative Video of the Year at the CMT Music Awards and is already a #1 smash on SiriusXM’s The Highway, Music Row’s CountryBreakout radio chart and a 3-week #1 on Canadian country radio.
Chris is also getting ready to release his highly anticipated 8th studio album Famous Friends on August 6th.
