Chris Young’s Latest Single, “Lonely Eyes” Inspired by Nashville Hangout

chris young

Chris Young admits to the occasional late night hang at Nashville’s renowned Losers Bar & Grill – but this week he’s singing about it! The single singer’s latest smash, “Lonely Eyes,” inspired by the local hangout, is impacting country radio this week, scoring the 2nd most added track with over 46 stations on board!

“Yeah, I’ve spent my fair share of time at Losers (Bar & Grill) in Nashville,” laughs Young. “As a songwriter I like to always be observing the world around me because you never know where you’ll find inspiration, and I’ve seen moments like what I sing about in ‘Lonely Eyes’ go down all the time. I’ve always said the best song wins, and the soaring melody and smart lyrics of this song grabbed me from the first time I heard it.”

Billboard Country Update recently highlighted the song in “Makin’ Tracks” and compares the storyline to forever favorites “Lucille” (Kenny Rogers), “The Chair” (George Strait) and “Drink On It” (Blake Shelton). Written by Johnny Bulford, Jason Matthews and Laura Veltz, “Lonely Eyes” watches two strangers lock eyes at a bar and imagine where the night might lead.

Early praise for the song includes:

“Chris turns the charm meter up to 10 on this throbbing roadhouse romance.” – Music Row

“Chris Young is one of the strongest male vocalists in the format right now…Young’s smooth vocals will strike a chord with all the women out there.” – All Access

“He has a brand. This traditional country song will strike a chord with fans…” – Taste of Country

“Chris Young’s 3rd single off his album A.M. is his best yet.” – Whiskey Riff

Listen below.

“Lonely Eyes” is the third single from his current album A.M.The album has already yielded the Gold certified chart-topper “Who I Am With You” and Top 5 hit and Gold certified single “Aw Naw.”

 ·  Wow, I love Robin Williams, god bless that fella, he will be missed, BIG time!

 

The Recording Academy has issued the following statement.

Five-time GRAMMY® winner Robin Williams was a prolific actor and stand-up comedian who literally did it all: television, film, theater, and live performances. After gaining fame in his breakout role of Mork in the television show “Mork & Mindy,” Williams became a household name. His improvisational skills and comedic timing were unmatched, and he quickly established himself as a larger-than-life presence on screen and on stage. His roles in classic movies such as Mrs. Doubtfire, The Birdcage, and Jumanji showcased his comedic chops, while his versatility was reflected in dramatic films such as Dead Poets Society, The Fisher King, and Good Will Hunting, which earned him an Academy Award® for Best Supporting Actor. Although Williams is most recognized for his film and television work, he has received GRAMMYs for Best Comedy Recording three times, Best Recording for Children, and Best Spoken Comedy Album. Additionally, his heart matched his expansive talent, as he often gave generously — both financially and personally — to a number of worthwhile causes throughout his life. Our entertainment community has lost an immense talent, a true inspiration, and a creative genius, and his remarkable legacy will forever be immortalized in his vast and impressive body of work. Our sincerest condolences go out to his family, friends, and his countless fans around the world who will continue to honor his memory through laughter.
