Chris Young honors his influences in “Raised on Country”

From a new, as-yet unannounced project from the songwriter.

Chris Young’s new single, “Raised on Country,” is a veritable who’s who of country legends that’ve influenced him over the years.

“I was raised on Merle, raised on Willie / Got my honky-tonk attitude from Joe Diffie / Daddy did too, it’s family tradition / When someone cranks it up you can’t help but listen / My upbringing sounds like George Strait singing,” Young hails on the chorus.

Co-written with producer Corey Crowder and songwriter Cary Barlowe, “Raised on Country” comes from Young’s as-yet unannounced new project, and follows 2018’s “Hangin’ on,” which was his ninth straight Top Five hit on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart.
