Lyrics for Famous Friends by Chris Young:

Verse 1: Chris Young
My buddy Brandon holds the record
For single-season touchdown throws
And good ol' Johnny, he's the life of every party
It's like cheers the know him everywhere he goes

Chorus: Chris Young & Kane Brown
I've got some famous friends, you've probably never heard of
But back in Rutherford County, our crowd is second to none
You might not know them here in this big city we're in
But when I go back home, I've got some famous friends
Yeah I do
(Oh-oh, oh-oh)

Verse 2: Kane Brown
My buddy Jason he's the sheriff
He'll flash his lights but lеt me go
My boy Randy he's a preachеr
My girl Megan, she's been teacher of the year
That's swear for five years in a row

Chorus: Chris Young & Kane Brown
I've got some famous friends, you've probably never heard of
But back in Hamilton County, our crowd is second to none
You might not know them here in this big city we're in
But when I go back home, I've got some famous friends
Yeah I do

Bridge: Kane Brown & Chris Young
I got friends in high places, only small town roads
'Cause 'round here it's all about the people that you know

Chorus: Chris Young & Kane Brown
I've got some famous friends, you probably never heard of
But back in Davidson County, our crowd is second to none
You might not know them here in this big city we're in
But when I go back home, I've got some famous friends
Yeah I do

Outro: Chris Young & Kane Brown
Yeah I do
You might not know them here in this big city we're in
But when I go back home, I've got some famous friends, yeah
I've got some famous friends (I've got some famous friends)
Yeah

Song Facts

In this single — named for Chris Young’s actual friends — and those of co-writers Cary Barlowe and Corey Crowder, Young sings the praises of every one he knew that was famous in their own small-town way.

Young said about the new song: why they wrote it the way they did and why it made sense to have Kane Brown join him on it.

“The hook of the song is basically, ’I’ve got some famous friends you’ve probably never heard of.’ It’s talking about people who are from your hometown. ’And you might not know them here, like if I’m in some big city somewhere. But when I go back home, I’ve got some famous friends.’“

“It was kind of a different idea and something that I really was drawn to when we were writing the song. We were out on the bus, out on tour, and we’d written a ballad and a tempo song. And I was like, ’Man I really want to write something about the people I grew up with, with kind of a hometown vibe.’ And this was what spawned from that idea. All the names I reference are actual people, so that’s kind of cool. It’s like a bunch of little pictures of people and who they are. And it’ll be a lot of fun when they hear it.”

Once the song was written, Young said, he knew he wanted it to be a big moment. So enter Kane Brown.

Young and Brown had collaborated before, on Brown’s 2017 “Setting the Night On Fire.”

The song references the counties where both Young and Brown grew up — Rutherford and Hamilton, respectively, along with Nashville’s Davidson County.
