Chris Young Continues to Build Up Confidence as a Songwriter

Earlier this week, Chris Young celebrated the success of his No. 1 single, ‘Voices,’ which he co-wrote with Chris Tompkins and Craig Wiseman. It just so happens that Young’s current single, ‘Tomorrow,’ is another tune which the handsome singer took part in writing.

‘Tomorrow’ has become the fastest-rising single of Young’s career, this week entering the Top 20 after only six weeks of being on the charts. With all this success as a songwriter, Young admits his confidence level has increased some as a songwriter, but he also knows he has his work cut out for him the deeper he gets into the songwriting world.

“I don’t think anybody ever gets completely confident as a songwriter,” Young tells Taste of Country. “It definitely makes you feel good [to have hit songs] as a songwriter. It also makes you know you have to work harder because I know how great this feeling is [to have a No. 1 song]. I want to experience this as often as possible. It’s one of those things that I know I can be really successful writing songs, but then there’s also [the reality of] ‘OK, I need to go back and start writing some more.’ I don’t know if I’m ever going to be like, ‘Oh yeah, I’ve got this … this is easy,’ but it’s a good feeling.”

Young is gearing up to hit the road with Jason Aldean on the My Kinda Party tour, beginning July 8. The tour also features Thompson Square on the bill.
