Released: Jul 2011
Label: Rca Records Label Nashville
He's a deep-voiced, big-hearted softie, this guy: Even his drinking songs stop to admire pretty sunsets or explain that "Save Water, Drink Beer" is really just a conservation thing. Chris Young's third record is anchored by the monster tainted-love smash "Tomorrow," and the rest of Neon sustains that spell of basso profundo sentimentality: Lovestruck belters like "You" and "When She's On" happily recall Darius Rucker. Best here though is "Flashlight," a legitimately affecting ode to all those formative years with Dad, fixing cars and talking girls. Young's still doing plenty of the latter.
