Chris Young Says Success Eases Pressure

Chris Young‘s "Losing Sleep" is the first music fans are hearing from his upcoming album. The song is climbing the charts, so that's a good sign for Chris, who has gotten used to commercial and critical success.

Chris is again co-producing the new project as he did with I'm Comin' Over, but he tells us he tries not to let the double-edged sword of success affect him. "I’m never gonna complain about an album being successful (laughter). You know, each one of them are so different from one another. They are really snapshots in time and where you are at that moment as a vocalist, as a songwriter, as a producer. And kind of what you are feeling, what you need to say. So I think each one of them can kinda stand on their own. Do you always look at how successful the last one was and hope that you can top it? Of course! But I was so proud of everything that happened with the whole album, with I’m Comin Over. The fact that all three singles went number 1, the fact they all sold really well, the fact that the album sold really well. It was the fastest Gold album I’d ever had in my career. All of those things kinda outweigh any, I guess, anxiousness I have about topping it with the next record."

Chris will headline the "Let Freedom Sing! Music City July 4th" in downtown Nashville.

Luke Combs Likes To Incorporate 'Old Southern Sayings' Into New Music

When you look at the track list of Luke Combs‘ debut album, This One’s For You, it features some song titles that sound familiar. For instance, take Luke’s new single, "When It Rains It Pours," and the album track "Be Careful What You Wish You," which Luke tells us were inspired by sayings that he grew up with. "Yeah, I’ve always been . . . I kind of like to write sayings, man, you know, ‘Be Careful What You Wish For’ or ‘When It Rains It Pours.’ These old southern sayings have always stuck out to me, so me and my buddy Ray (Fulcher) are actually really good at writing those and he is on both of those songs and a lot of the other ones that are colloquialisms I guess, for lack of a better term. I’ve always thought there was something interesting about being able to take a saying that you’ve heard a million times and turn it into something that maybe you didn’t see coming."

"When It Rains It Pours" is the follow up song to Luke’s two-week Number One hit "Hurricane."
