Chris Young celebrated the success of his third No. 1 single, “Voices,” with a party at ASCAP Monday night, honoring both him and his co-writers, Chris Tompkins and Craig Wiseman. “Voices” was not only a No. 1 single, but also a record-breaking hit. Chris first released the song in 2008 and it peaked at 37. Following the success of “Gettin’ You Home” and “The Man I Want To Be,” Chris’ label decided to release the track a second time. When the track went No. 1, it broke a 25-year record previously held by Randy Travis’ “On The Other Hand” as only the second time in the modern era of the Billboard country chart for a re-release to reach No. 1.
At the No. 1 party, Chris talked to GAC about how he and his co-writers penned “Voices” and revealed where he was when he found out it had reached the top spot. Watch our interview with Chris to see what he has to say!
