Chris Young debuts self-directed music video for ‘Drowning’

Holy smokes this video will get you right in the feels!

Chris Young has added the title of director to his resume after releasing the touching video for Drowning.

In the video, Chris holds up a picture of Adam Carnes, his longtime friend whose loss is memorialized in the song. Also featured in the video are fans who hold up photos of their lost ones, moving tributes to spouses, children, parents, siblings and friends. The fans were filmed at the Richmond, VA date of Chris’ “Raised On Country World Tour 2019.”

The live shots of Chris singing Drowning were filmed at the MGM Grand Garden Arena during his first headlining show in Las Vegas in nearly two years. Fans raised their phones to light the arena as the performance served to honor the victims and fellow survivors of the tragic Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting two years ago.

“I’ve been so amazed at the reaction to this song,” Young said in a release. “I wrote it with two friends as a moment of healing and had no idea it would touch so many people before it was even chosen as a single. The video, combining so many personal moments alongside a live performance, totally embodies that and I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”

Drowning is now playing on radio, so be sure to request it. The song will also be part of Chris’ upcoming new album.
