Get Ready To Fall in Love with Chris Young’s Heart Tugging Song “You”

by

Chris Young is one of the hottest names and hottest voices in Nashville, and he made so many hearts flutter when he released his “more sensual than sexy” song, “You.” 

It was released in 2011 as the second single from his third album Neon, and it quickly became Young’s fifth consecutive No. 1 hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. The song also became Young’s third Top 40 hit on the Hot 100, peaking at No. 34. 

After selling more than a million digital copies in the United States, “You” was certified Platinum.

A Song By Two of The Nashville’s Best

Written by Chris Young with songwriter-producer Luke Laird, “You” tells the tale of a man singing to his lover that no one else could affect him the way she does.

“No one gets me like you, and when you kiss me. Girl, you rock me harder than some downtown band. I thought I knew what love was, but I didn’t have a clue. I never found anything that makes me feel like I do about you,” the song goes.

Luke Laird is one of the biggest songwriters in Nashville with more than 20 No. 1 Billboard singles, including Blake Shelton’s “Gonna,” Carrie Underwood’s “So Small,” and Lady A’s “Downtown.”

Laird attended college in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, which is also Young’s hometown. He had often heard things about Young, being the talented young singer-songwriter, even before Young landed a record deal. But when Young showed up at Music Row to write with Laird, it was actually the first time they’d met. 

“Our publishers booked that co-write,” Laird recalled. “He came over to my studio on Music Row one day. That was the first time we met, too. He came in, and I was working on this groove. He liked it. As we were talking, he had this really cool melody he shared. He was like, man, I think it would be cool to write a song called ‘You.’ I figured if he thinks it’s cool, it will be cool!”

When they were finished, Young decided to add lines about how the narrator’s life “got a whole new direction” to give it a more serious tone. Both Laird and Young called the song “simple and straightforward.” And the rest was history.
