Following the recent success of his No. 1 single “Think Of You” with Cassadee Pope, Chris Young is back with a powerful new song, “Sober Saturday Night.” Young co-wrote the song with Brad Warren and Brett Warren and added even more star power with country music legend Vince Gill lending his expertise in background vocals and guitar.
One of the best qualities of country music is its ability to relate to its audience. With lines like, “not out there gettin’ high underneath some neon lights, ain’t no whiskey strong enough to make things right,” Young paints a very vivid picture of heartbreak – something that everyone has likely experienced at least once in life. The lyrics do a fantastic job of exposing the pain and vulnerability that we so often try to cover up while going through a break up. Young’s voice is perfect for this type of song and the emotion shines through. This song could just be the one to prove that ballads still have a place up in the ranks of popularity with the up-beat party songs in country music.
“Sober Saturday Night” was recently released to radio stations across the country and has the potential to become another big hit for Young’s already impressive career. As the third single from his I’m Comin’ Over album, I would love to see this song make the same impact on radio and with his fans. No doubt there won’t be a dry eye in the house if he breaks this song out on stage.
