Chris Young notches 11th No 1 single

“Hangin’ On” is singer/songwriter’s 5th consecutive No. 1

Multi-platinum entertainer Chris Young scores his 11th No. 1 single on Sunday, November 11th, as “Hangin’ On” takes the top spot on the Mediabase Country Radio Chart. Written by Young with Corey Crowder and Josh Hoge, the song, which “finds Young revving up his rich country baritone” (Rolling Stone), is the Opry member’s ninth No. 1 as a songwriter.

“Hangin’ On” is also Young’s fifth consecutive No. 1, topping a list that includes the three-week No. 1 and 2x platinum certified “I’m Comin’ Over,” the ACM, CMA, Grammy and RDMA nominated, platinum single “Think Of You” with Cassadee Pope, the BBMA nominated Gold single “Sober Saturday Night” featuring Vince Gill, and platinum certified and title of his sold-out arena headlining tour, “Losing Sleep.”

“Making music is all I’ve ever wanted to do, so to be celebrating my 11th No. 1 really is a dream come true,” states Young.

“Hangin’ On” is found on Young’s most recent chart-topping album, Losing Sleep, also the namesake for his 2018 arena headlining tour. Over the weekend, Young took his Losing Sleep World Tour to packed houses at Giant Center in Hershey, PA and Onecenter War Memorial Auditorium in Syracuse, NY.
