Chris Young and Kane Brown Earn #1 Song with “Famous Friends”

Chris Young and Kane Brown earn #1 song with their collaboration “Famous Friends.” The song is officially the top song at country radio.

Back in November, Chris Young dropped a brand new song in collaboration with his buddy, fellow superstar Kane Brown. That song is of course, hit single, “Famous Friends.” Today, the track is the number one song at country radio.

Written by Young with Cary Barlowe and Corey Crowder, the song is an ode to amazing people in Rutherford, Hamilton, and Davidson Country, Tennessee, all places that are special to the singer. The twosome sing about local heroes like preachers, sheriffs, and teachers. The collaboration marks the second time Young and Brown have shared the mic on a song. Back in 2016, the singers released “Setting the Night on Fire” together.

“I’ve got some famous friends you’ve probably never heard of // But back in Rutherford County our crowd is second to none // You might not know ‘em here in this big city we’re in // But when I go back home I’ve got some famous friends // Yeah I do”

“Famous Friends” is the 12th official number one single for Young. For Brown, the song brings his total hits to seven. Quite a feat for talented artists!
