Watch Chris Young Debut Tear-Inducing New Song, “Drowning,” on the Grand Ole Opry

The Grand Ole Opry released a video of Chris Young debuting his touching new song, “Drowning,” on the Opry in June.

Co-penned by Chris, Corey Crowder and Josh Hoge, “Drowning” was partly inspired by the death of Chris’ close friend, Adam, and features lyrics: “So tonight I’m gonna pull out pictures, ones with you in ’em / Laugh and cry a little while reminiscing / By myself, I can’t help that all I think about is / How you were taken way too soon / It ain’t the same here without you / I gotta say, missing you comes in waves / And tonight I’m drowning.”

Toward the end of Chris’ Opry performance of “Drowning,” he was so overcome with emotion that he ended the song prematurely.

“When I wrote this song with Corey Crowder and Josh Hoge, we each thought of someone that we lost way too soon,” said Chris via Instagram. “For me, it was one of my best friends, Adam. Missing you comes in waves and tonight I’m drowning. This one is for you, brother.”

“Drowning” will be featured on Chris’ upcoming eighth studio album, Raised On Country, which is expected to drop later this year.
