Straight off his sixth Number 1 hit song (see Nicole Piering’s post on the success of Chris Young), Chris Young returns with his next release, “Lonely Eyes.” A slow, sultry track, “Lonely Eyes” tells the tale of a woman who enters a bar with pain, sadness, and loneliness radiating from her, especially evident in her green eyes. Lucky for her, she chooses the right seat at the bar and makes herself comfortable right next to Young.
From Young’s perspective, the stranger, whom he affectionately nicknames “Lonely Eyes,” is a damsel in distress out looking for something, and he certainly hopes she finds that in him. With just the right amount of vulnerability and desperation in his voice, Young croons of his admiration for this woman, while striving to catch her eyes long enough to make her realize that he is the cure to her woes. The chorus begs “lonely eyes, well, it sure looks like you just might be looking for something, for something, oh. Look at me and I think you’ll see those lonely eyes don’t have to be alone tonight.”
The song, which appears on Young’s fourth studio album, A.M., was penned by Johnny Bulford (Billy Currington, Eli Young Band), Jason Matthews (Luke Bryan, James Otto), and Laura Veltz (Eli Young Band, Jana Kramer), and will serve as the third radio single off the critically acclaimed offering.
