Chris Young and Kane Brown have topped the Mediabase country radio chart this week with their hit, “Famous Friends.” The feat marks Young’s 12th career No. 1, and the sixth for Brown.
Penned by Young, Cary Barlowe, and Corey Crowder on a tour stop in Tampa in 2018, the autobiographical tune name-checks Rutherford County where Young grew up and Brown’s hometown of Hamilton County, along with Music City’s home of Davidson County. The song also took home the trophy for Collaborative Video of the Year at the CMT Music Awards and is already a No. 1 on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout radio chart, SiriusXM’s The Highway, and spent three weeks at No. 1 on Canadian country radio.
Young took to socials to celebrate the news saying, “Finding out you have the number one song in Country Music is such a crazy feeling. My career started with a No. 37, No. 52, No.37 in that order. If you had asked me if I ever thought I’d be celebrating my 12th number one… just wow… no words.”

With nearly five billion career streams, Young is also gearing up for the release of his highly anticipated 8th studio album, Famous Friends, on Aug. 6. Led by the chart-topping title track with Brown, the 14-song project features several more of Chris’s famous friends, including collaborations with Lauren Alaina and Mitchell Tenpenny, plus background vocals from Sarah Buxton and Hillary Lindsey.
