When Chris Young set out to write his latest single, "Raised on Country," he admits he had a pretty ambitious goal in mind.
"This song is so crazy, because when I wrote 'Raised on Country,' we were actually out on the road," he explains. "And we were like, 'You know, we really want just kind of a country anthem.'"
"And those are so hard to write," he continues, "because it seems like they'd be super obvious, but you've just got to come at it in the perfect way. And from the minute we started writing this song, we knew we were onto something."
Chris recalls there was little doubt "Raised on Country" would help chart the course for his new album, the follow-up to 2017's Losing Sleep.
"That day, I think I even said, I was like 'This is definitely going on the record. This is single potential,'" he remembers. "And I can't wait for everybody to hear 'Raised on Country.'"
