MusicRow presented RCA Nashville’s Chris Young with his MusicRow Challenge Coin (Coin No. 0192) for “Lonely Eyes,” at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium yesterday, Feb. 12. Penned by Johnny Bulford, Jason Matthews, Laura Veltz, this is the third single from Young’s fourth studio album, A. M. “Lonely Eyes” topped the MusicRow radio chart on Jan. 29.
Upon release of the single last year, acclaimed music critic Robert K. Oermann said, “Chris turns the charm meter up to 10 on this throbbing roadhouse romance. He also sings his fanny off.”
This is Young’s second MusicRow Challenge Coin, with the first honoring his No. 1 hit, “Who I Am With You.”
