This week, multi-Platinum entertainer Chris Young and Riser House/Columbia Nashville/Sony Music Nashville recording artist Mitchell Tenpenny have taken their “At The End Of A Bar” collaboration to the top of the Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase country radio charts.
Included on Young’s Famous Friends (Deluxe Edition), the track marks the singer-songwriter’s 13th No. 1 single as an artist and his 11th trip to the top as a songwriter. Meanwhile, the single also notches Tenpenny’s second No. 1 as an artist and as a songwriter.
Young, Tenpenny and Chris DeStefano wrote “At The End Of A Bar” in February 2021 during a Nashville snowstorm. “It’s a true testament to never skip a day of work because you never know what you might write,” Young says. “It’s also a hell of a lot of fun to sing, and Mitchell Tenpenny and I had entirely too much fun stacking vocals on this, so we had to make it a duet.”
“I’m just so excited to have a number one with this song. It’s a special song and a great story about how it was written. Even cooler to have it with some of my best buddies,” shares Tenpenny. “Chris has become one of my best friends, so to get to celebrate this together is special in itself. And I can’t express enough how amazing Chris DeStefano is. His talent and his energy in the room is unmatched. We’ve written some of my favorite songs together and I’m just honored to share a No. 1 with these incredible men.”
“At The End Of A Bar” is the follow-up to Young’s multi-Platinum, multi-week No. 1, “Famous Friends” with Kane Brown.
