Chris shared the news on Instagram writing, “Finding out you have the number one song in Country Music is such a crazy feeling. My career started with a #37 #52 #37 in that order. If you had asked me if I ever thought I’d be celebrating my 12th number one… just wow… no words. @kanebrown_music so proud to share this one with you brother! Thank you to anyone reading this, @coreycrowder @carybarlowe (my co-writers and CC is my co-producer) , and all of Country Radio for sending this one to the top!!! #FamousFriends #numberone.”

Chris co-wrote the autobiographical song which mentions Rutherford County, where Chris grew up in Tennessee, and Kane’s hometown of Hamilton County along with Nashville’s Davidson County – a.k.a. Music City and namechecks some of their real-life friends who are famous but only to them.
Chris said the title of the song is misleading, and that was done on purpose. He explained, “It’s not what you think when you first see the title. It’s like ‘Famous Friends,’ Chris Young and Kane Brown. I wanted everybody to go, ‘What is this gonna be about?’ And then when they hear the song it’s supposed to be, you know, we’re really taking the hat off to all the people that might not be famous to everybody else but they’re famous to you, they’re famous to your hometown, they’re famous to your friends that you know, and that was something that we thought everybody could relate to.”
“Famous Friends” is Chris and Kane’s first collaboration since working together on Kane’s 2017 song “Setting the Night On Fire.” Watch the video below!
