NYCS First Impression: Chris Young ‘Losing Sleep’
If Chris Young knows how to do anything very well, it’s release albums chock full of smooth country songs. His voice is unmistakable and as far as his latest, Losing Sleep goes, it is everything fans love about the singer. While he doesn’t take major risks sonically, it is not necessarily a bad thing, balancing sexy love songs, heartbreak and finding new love.
Lending his baritone, twangy voice to a more pop-production, especially in the first single “Losing Sleep”, many of the tracks are primed for radio. He knows the sweet spot in his voice and with his song choices. For the first time on his sixth studio album, Young is a co-writer as well as a co-producer on each of the 10 songs.
The newest member of the Grand Ole Opry, who was inducted earlier this week, shines on “Radio and the Rain”, “Trouble Looking” and “Where I Go to Drink” which each showcase their own dynamic stories. Other highlights include “Holiday”, a simple love song and “Blacked Out” with his melancholy, Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley references.
Losing Sleep is an easy listen and each track offers a different point of view or story. It is emotional without being sappy and the love songs are honest and raw. Grab your copy on iTunes now. Young announced he will be headlining the Losing Sleep Tour in 2018, bringing along Kane Brown and LANCO to open each show.
