Chris Young, ‘Tomorrow’ – Song Spotlight
‘Nashville Star’ winner and old soul Chris Young has launched his brand new single ‘Tomorrow’ at country radio. While the title might seem like a harbinger of Young’s bright future, the song is actually a tender, lovelorn ballad that tugs unmercifully at your heart strings, no matter how stoic or emotionally thick-skinned you might be. ‘Tomorrow’ will appear on Young’s forthcoming album ‘Neon,’ due out on RCA Nashville later this year.
Young, who performed for more than one million fans at his 180 concerts in 2010, is coming off a banner year and has enjoyed string of No. 1 hits, the most recent being ‘Voices.’ Another of his numero unos, ‘Gettin’ You Home,’ is also nominated for a Grammy. Young seems poised to notch his fourth No. 1 with ‘Tomorrow,’ which is so pretty it hurts. Young’s vocals are so deep they reach marrow and they are the showpiece of the song, which resonates with its emotional heft and easy-to-relate-to subject matter.
The song is about how agonizing it is to tear yourself away from a deteriorating relationship and how you cling to it for one final night before walking away. Young croons “Tonight I’m gonna love you like there’s no tomorrow,” despite the fact that he and his beloved are “like fire and gasoline / I’m no good for you / You’re no good for me / We only bring each other tears and sorrow.” We’ve all had one of those relationships, where it’s damn near impossible to let go even when it’s for the best, and that’s what gives the song such a universal appeal.
Regardless, ‘Tomorrow’ is looking awful good for Chris Young right about now. To purchase Chris Young’s latest single, ‘Tomorrow,’ click here.
