Multi-platinum, global entertainer Chris Young (RCA Records Nashville) and multi-faceted entertainer Mitchell Tenpenny (Riser House/Columbia Nashville/Sony Music Nashville) have taken their “booming duet” (Tennessean) to the top of the Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase country radio charts this week with their hit song, “At The End Of A Bar.” Found on Young’s Famous Friends (Deluxe Edition), “At The End Of A Bar” marks his 13th career No.1 single as an artist and his 11th No. 1 single as a songwriter and is the follow-up to his multi-platinum, multi-week No. 1, “Famous Friends” with Kane Brown. “At The End Of A Bar” is the 2nd No. 1 for Tenpenny as an artist and his 2nd No. 1 single as a songwriter. Young, Tenpenny and Chris DeStefano wrote “At The End Of A Bar” in February 2021 during a Nashville snowstorm where most of the city was shut down. “It’s a true testament to never skip a day of work because you never know what you might write,” Young says. Produced by DeStefano and Young, he continues, “it’s also a hell of a lot of fun to sing, and Mitchell Tenpenny and I had entirely too much fun stacking vocals on this, so we had to make it a duet.” On learning the No. 1 news, Young shared to Instagram: “Thanks to ALL OF YOU, ‘At The End Of A Bar’ is officially my 13th NUMBER 1! Pretty crazy to think that ‘Gettin’ You Home’ was my first number 1 in 2009 and I can’t believe my career has grown so much since then! Thanks for writing and singing this one with me @m10penny! (And you too @Chrisdestefano).” “I’m just so excited to have a number one with this song. It’s a special song and a great story about how it was written. Even cooler to have it with some of my best buddies,” shares Tenpenny. “Chris has become one of my best friends, so to get to celebrate this together is special in itself. And I can’t express enough how amazing Chris DeStefano is. His talent and his energy in the room is unmatched. We’ve written some of my favorite songs together and I’m just honored to share a #1 with these incredible men.” The chart-topping status comes following the summer release of Young’s “most personal album to date” (Forbes), Chris Young’s Famous Friends (Deluxe Edition). In addition to No. 1s “Famous Friends” with Kane Brown and “At The End of a Bar,” with Mitchell Tenpenny, the project features six new sides. New collaborations include “Music Note” with Jimmie Allen, an “excellent ode to musical heroes and chasing dreams” (Billboard) and “Everybody Needs A Song” with Old Dominion. Two new solo songs – “If I Knew What Was Good For Me” and “Like A Slow Song” — as well as acoustic versions of fan favorites “I’m Comin’ Over” and “Think of You” with Cassadee Pope round out the twenty sides on the new release, all produced or co-produced by Chris.
