WHAT DO YOU WANT WRITTEN ON YOUR
Lets dive into the new Chris Young Album A.M.
Track 1: Aw Naw: I LOVE THIS SONG! Great way to kick off an album, so glad that Chris cut this song, it is a new sound for him, but man is it a good sound! LOVE THIS SONG!
Track 2: Hold You To It: This song brings back the Chris Young we all know. I can see the couples getting after it for years to come on the dance floor. I really like this song, great lyrics and just a fun song that guys and girls can both relate to and like!
Track 3: Lonely Eyes: This song screams classic Chris Young; power ballad about a beautiful women. If you are a Chris Young fan like I am, you will love this song. The lyrics are not cliché or cheesy, they are relatable and great!
Track 4: Goodbye: Ever hear a song that immediately paints a picture in your mind and that picture is so vibrant that it gives you chills….. Well this is that song! WOW! Ever person man or woman has lived this song. I guarantee this song will find its way on to KNIX and it will be a hit for years!
Track 5: A.M. Title track off the new album, song is up-tempo and thankfully it does not talk about a tailgate or a red solo cup; this is a fun song. If you like to dance at Toby’s this song is for you. This song has just enough cliché country lyrics to be catchy but not so many that it becomes annoying.
Track 6: Nothin But The Cooler Left: So from the title of this song, I thought we had another tailgate solo cup Chevy song…. Well much to my surprise the lyrics and sound of this song are not cliché, this is a great country song, honestly I feel like many of the current cliché country songs should model themselves after this song, its catchy but not cheesy!
Track 7: Who I Am With You: If you are a guy like me who has lived a crazy life, made a ton of mistakes and seemed to always live for the moment, and finally met that person who accepts you for you, and lets you be the real you…. Then this song is singing to you, I have played this song over and over again since I got this album this morning. It is def a ballad; but these lyrics hit you like a ton of bricks!! My favorite song on the new album!
Track 8: Text Me Texas: Ever been in a long distance relationship and hated it, but you do it because you can’t let go…… Then you will love this song, it is very slow, and has a traditional country sound. I think this is either a love it or hate it kind of song. Personally this is my least favorite song on the album. Hey they can’t all be hits…
Track 9: We’re Gonna Find It Tonight: Guys go ahead and crank this one up and look at your girl, and sing every line to her. This is a great song about young love, up beat, catchy lyrics and just a fun song. This will be one of those songs that gets you dancing in the aisles at the next Chris Young concert.
Track 10: Forgiveness: Another slow ballad from Chris, this song is packed with emotion. If you ever really messed up in a relationship and wish you could move on this song is for you. Not sure if this will ever be on KNIX, but this is a good song.
Track 11: Lighters In The Air: From the title you think this song should be a Florida Georgia Line song, but once you hear it, you know this is a perfect song from Chris Young. This song reminds me of Eric Church’s Springsteen, this is just one of those songs that takes you back to that concert that you never forget. I sound like a broken record but this another great song.
I will get to the point, should you buy this album….. HECK YES! In the days of cliché poppy country that makes Zac Brown sick, it is refreshing to have a real country album with a modern feel. I can honestly say this album is worth every penny.
