Kane Brown’s “Famous Friends” duet with Chris Young is a “full circle” moment for him.
During an interview with RADIO.COM’s Katie Neal for the Superstar Power Hour, the “Worship You” singer shared that he immediately fell in love with the song when Young sent it to him as it reminded him of one of the several tracks written by Young that he has covered through the years.
“I fell in love with it, It reminded of songs I used to do, covers of his, back when I first started,” Brown said.
Brown’s career first started to take off when he was releasing covers of his favorite songs on Facebook, and he says “most” of the “covers were Chris’,” then adding that he “probably had 15-20 of them.”
He shared that the superstars “had songs together before” and that they have written together in the past but they’ve “never had a single out to radio” together, so he says it “feels good to have a full-circle moment and an actual song out to radio with him.”

Young released the duet with Brown in late November 2020, the song finds both Brown and Young trading vocals while dropping the names of some of their “famous friends” and the three counties that mean a lot to them including Rutherford County, Hamilton County and Davidson County.
The track went on to become one of the most-added songs at country radio during its release week.
He previously revealed that Young “really helped” him find his “voice” and is ultimately who “got him into singing”
