CountryMusicRocks Album Review: Chris Young ‘Neon’

After three consecutive #1 singles as well as a recent Grammy nomination, Chris Young is releasing his highly anticipated 3rd studio album, NEON, on Tuesday, July 12th.  In a recent interview, Chris told CountryMusicRocks that this was the hardest album he has had to sing and that he pushed himself both as a singer & as a songwriter. (check out our interview with Chris here)  Chris co-wrote 7 out of the 10 tracks and his hard work is definitely evident on his new album. 

NEON showcases Chris Young’s rich & unmistakable voice that has become a favorite in country music.  While NEON is just a few days away from being released, the album already houses a certified Gold single with powerhouse ballad – “Tomorrow”.  The entire album stands out with quality tracks graced with Young’s solid vocals as he delivers a genuine & seasoned country tone that is certain to be embraced. His fun, upbeat personality shines on “Save Water, Drink Beer” & “Lost” while “Old Things New” and “Flashlight” expresses his softer side as the songs contains personal meaning to him.  The album titled track “Neon” has a back-in-the-day country feel & sound to it, but is presented with a modern day appeal that will be refreshing to hear on country radio.  “She’s Got This Thing About Her” is a beautiful ballad that features an elegant musical arrangement.  Add in Young’s compelling voice & you have a complete soundtrack to a love story compiled into to one captivating song.

NEON is a fresh new album that country music fans are sure to enjoy. There are no fillers on this album, instead you get 10 great songs from an artist that is consistently making an impact in country music.
