My brush with Chris Young…hear the story after the song here…

This is the second single by Chris Young, from his third studio album, Neon. The song was released September 12, 2011.

Young wrote this with Nashville songwriter Luke Laird, whose other credits include Carrie Underwood’s “Temporary Home” and “So Small” Blake Shelton’s “Hillbilly Bone.”

The Chris Hicky-directed retro video finds Young portraying a heartthrob gas station attendant.

Laird went to college in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, which is Young’s hometown, so he had often heard things about the young singer-songwriter even before he landed a record deal. However, when Young showed up at Music Row to write with Laird it was the first time that they’d actually met. “Our publishers booked that co-write,” Laird recalled to Taste of Country. “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 [laughs]!”

“You” was Young’s fifth consecutive country #1 February 11.2012 following “Gettin’ You Home (The Black Dress Song)”,”The Man I Want To Be,” “Voices” and “Tomorrow” .

LYRICS: Written by Chris Young and Luke Laird
The bluest skies don’t seem so blue

And the stars seem to be a little dimmer too

Now that you’re around you put ’em all to shame

Let me break it down cause what I’m trying to say is

No one gets me like you 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

Gotta whole new direction it seems these days

I used to rush off to work and get home late but

Now I show up late and rush back home

My priorities are different, I can’t leave you alone

No one gets me like you 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

Girl if you ever get to guessing if I’m thinking about you

Just remember that

No one gets me like you 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

You you you, youuuuu, whoa you
