The album is available to pre-order/pre-save at https://CY.lnk.to/FamousFriends.
“I know I’ve said it before, but I honestly can’t say it enough – I am so excited to be releasing my new album,” shared Young. “There are so many incredibly talented artists, songwriters and producers – all friends of mine – who helped make this album possible. Having friends share their talents as collaborators, songwriters, producers and more, it’s only natural to call the album ‘Famous Friends.’”
The album features the singles ‘Raised On Country’, ‘Drowning’, ‘Town Ain’t Big Enough’ featuring Lauren Alaina and ‘Famous Friends; featuring Kane Brown. It also features ‘Rescue Me’, which was released today.
“I think ‘Rescue Me’ is such a cool twist on the typical love song concept,” said Young of the song written with Josh Hoge, Mark Holman, Matthew McGinn and Christian Davis Stalnecker, one of 13 tracks he had a hand in writing on the new record. “People were already falling in love with it just based off short social teases. It’s something special and I’m proud to have helped write it and produce it alongside Mark Holman.”
Young co-produced 13 of the album’s tracks along the likes of Corey Crowder, Chris DeStefano and Mark Holman. The closing track ‘Tonight We’re Dancing’ was solely produced by Young.
