Two singles set new milestones for country star
Chris Young doubles down on the Nielsen and radio airplay charts this week as “Drowning” and “Raised On Country” set new milestones for the multi-platinum entertainer.
“Anchored by soul-shattering lyrics” (People), “Drowning,” penned in memory of a close friend, debuts on the Nielsen chart with over 1.2 million streams. Young was overcome with emotion when he sang “Drowning” during a recent Opry appearance, and thousands others have gone online to share their own journey with grief in response to the song.
“Raised On Country,” also the title of his massive 2019 headlining tour, becomes his 15th Top 10 single, climbing to No. 7 on Mediabase and No. 9 on the Billboard charts as 21,500 people sang-along Saturday at BB&T Pavilion in Philadelphia, PA.
“Drowning” and “Raised On Country” are available now digitally. After tour stops in Scranton and Philadelphia over the weekend, Young returns to the road later this weekend with shows in Prior Lake, MN (June 28th) and Omaha, NE (June 29th).
