Chris Young and Cassadee Pope Come Together for July 4 Duet [Watch]
Chris Young headlined Nashville's Let Freedom Sing! Music City July 4th celebration on Tuesday, playing a free hour-long set on a stage set up on Lower Broadway. While the singer performed hit after hit for the thousands of fans in attendance, it was his Grammy-nominated duet "Think of You" with Cassadee Pope that garnered the loudest response.
Mid-set the singer thanked fans for his Grammy-nominated song, and as he launched into the chorus, Pope walked out to join him. Festively dressed in a blue ensemble and red heels, she looked the part for Independence Day, and everyone in the streets of downtown Music City was loving it.
Watch the singers perform the song in the video clip above and enlist approximately 240,000 people in attendance to sing along.
Young recently released the lead single to his upcoming seventh studio album. "Losing Sleep," which he co-wrote with frequent collaborators Josh Hoge and Chris DeStefano, is a sexy beat-heavy power ballad that has Young singing of turning the lights down low for a night wrapped up in sheets with his lady.
“I continue to be blown away by the response to my last record and it makes me push myself even harder in the studio and onstage,” Young explains. “With every new album I think I want to try and write something easier and not so high in my register, but of course, on ‘Losing Sleep’ we push the boundaries even further and layer in some fun, new grooves too.”
"Losing Sleep" follows the success of Young's ninth No. 1 hit "Sober Saturday Night" which featured Vince Gill.
