Chris Young Releases Heartfelt Tune, “Drowning,” Inspired by Friend’s Death [Listen]

Chris Young released a new song, “Drowning,” from his upcoming eighth studio album, Raised On Country, which is expected to drop later this year.

Co-penned by Chris, Corey Crowder and Josh Hoge, “Drowning” was partly inspired by the death of Chris’ close friend, Adam, and features lyrics: “So tonight I’m gonna pull out pictures, ones with you in ’em / Laugh and cry a little while reminiscing / By myself, I can’t help that all I think about is / How you were taken way too soon / It ain’t the same here without you / I gotta say, missing you comes in waves / And tonight I’m drowning”

“When I wrote this song with Corey Crowder and Josh Hoge, we each thought of someone that we lost way too soon,” said Chris via Instagram. “For me, it was one of my best friends, Adam. Missing you comes in waves and tonight I’m drowning. This one is for you, brother.”
