Even though Chris Young didn’t write his latest single, “Lonely Eyes,” he says the barroom scene he describes in the tune could’ve been inspired by one of his favorite hangouts in midtown Nashville, not far from Music Row.
“Yeah, I’ve spent my fair share of time at Losers [Bar & Grill],” he laughs. “I’ve seen moments like what I sing about in ‘Lonely Eyes’ go down all the time. I’ve always said the best song wins, and the soaring melody and smart lyrics of this song grabbed me from the first time I heard it.”
Written by Johnny Bulford, Jason Matthews and Laura Veltz, “Lonely Eyes” is the third single from Chris’s fourth album, A.M. His last release, “Who I Am with You,” went all the way to number one.
