It’s pretty amazing to think of all the success Chris Young has had when you think about his stature in the country world. He’s certainly a respected and well-liked artist it seems, but when you talk about big stars in the genre his name will rarely come up. Yet this is a guy that’s been having top five hits for over five years. Here is his next single, which sounds like another hit.
Lonely Eyes – Chris Young
The song is about a a guy and a girl that have a moment in a bar one night. They’re both they’re for the same reason or so the guy thinks. He’s there because he’s lonely and looking for something, someone, anything that might make him feel better even if it’s just for the night.
And he sees the woman walk in with the same lonely eyes. He brightens up a little bit. He’s hoping that she’s feeling the same way and that fate will bring them together to help heal each other even if it’s just for a short time.
This is a cool song. It’s not a love song. I would describe it as a bit of a sad song. It comes across as a ballad, but is more of a medium tempo and the music is pretty heavy, which is kind of cool. Chris is definitely one of today’s only country stars with a traditional sound, but he’s been mixing in more electric guitars and it’s kind of cool. The song has a little bit of an ’80s rock feel to it and I like it.
I think this sounds like another smash hit for Chris. But my opinion is biased because I think he’s one of the best and one of the most underrated stars in country right now.
Let me know what you think of the new song. I need a reality check.
Chart Estimate: #3
CML Points: 90/100
This is one artist who is SOOOO underrated and overlooked…….vocally one of the best out there at this time!
I’m biased too!
I’ve been following his career since the fall of 2006, then through the lull of radio airplay! Thanking radio in 2009 for taking a chance with GETTIN YOU HOME……THE REST IS HISTORY…..
10 shows, 4 meet/greets and one fan club party…..the best is yet to be for him!
Dayne, I agree with you 100% . Chris is a incredible singer and is very underrated. He is true country not a sell out like some groups(no pop here) I love his music, and all of he’s songs. He deserves so much more recognition.
Chris has the best voice in country music. It is high time the industry recognizes how extremely talented and powerful this artist truely is. I love this song and his rich voice brings it to life. Can’t wait to see what else is in store for Chris Young’s career.
Chris Young, along with Dierks Bentley are the best singers in country music today. They are actually on tour together. That is one concert I would love to attend.
I love your review and totally agree! This song is different than what is on the radio now and I love it. It reminds me of his song “You”. It’s got a different vibe and the lyrics and melody sell it. I see it being another big ole #1 for Chris!!!
He is the most underrated country artist for sure. He is an amazing entertainer. I have been following his career since Nashville Star. He is the nicest man I know.
