Chris Young's new single "Losing Sleep" is racing up the charts, and we sat down with him to get the scoop on the song.

He revealed to us that he wrote the song 2 years ago, shortly after the I'm Coming Over album was released. It was a song that he loved immediately, but also was tough because he knew it would be awhile before he could actually share it with fans.

It's fun when you get to the point to finally release something new, he said. "Just really happy it was the first single picked, it's something sonically that's a little different for me."

Chris is currently on tour with Jason Aldean, and says that the response from the crowd is already been great. "The songs not even Top 40 yet, and people are already singing it back - which is just an incredible sign."
