Combine Chris Young’s unmistakably rich vocals with Cassadee Pope’s fresh, edgy vibe and you already have a winning recipe; add a creative lyrical perspective on the classic theme of lost love, and *boom* – a catchy, upbeat song that’s sure to invade country radio with force.
“Think of You” is the second single from Chris Young’s 2015 album I’m Comin’ Over, and is released on the heels of the #1-hit title track. Young co-wrote the duet with Corey Crowder and Josh Hoge, and immediately tapped Pope as his recording partner. The concept is nothing new – a relationship ends, and both parties struggle to adjust to life without the other – but the perspective adds a unique twist.
Key lyrics: “Maybe they’re like me and they want us back” . . . “When they think of me they think of you.” The characters in the story look at their broken relationship from the perspective of their friends, acquaintances, and even the general public – as if the universe itself is upset with them for breaking up and hopes they’ll reunite.
Keep your ears peeled: Pope is set to join Young on tour this year, a matchup that’s sure to produce plenty of fantastic live renditions of the duet.
