Watch Chris Young’s official “Raised On Country” music video below!

Directed by Peter Zavadil (Joe Diffie “Prop Me Up Beside The Jukebox,” Pistol Annies “Got My Name Changed Back”), “Raised On Country” was filmed at a Nashville-area dive bar and the landmark WSM Radio Tower and features Young, along with two of his longtime bandmates, Kevin Collierand Ryan Haas, in the high-wattage video. Young, a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 2017, was excited to film at the historic location built in 1932. At the time, the tower was the tallest in the world, and its 50,000 watts ensured the Opry could be heard on 650 AM-WSM from New York to California and parts of Mexico and Canada.

“As a member of the Opry, I was honored to be allowed to film ‘Raised On Country’ in and around the WSM Radio Tower and the same airwaves where songs from my musical icons have played over the years,” shared Young in a press release. “It was a long day and I had a lot of fun filming the video, even in the scenes where we had debris flying in our faces inside the studio.”

“Raised on Country” Lyrics 

Got a little southern drawl in my talk
Little pickup truck on my highway
Got a little boot stomp in my walk
Little neon lighting my Friday
Got some Tennessee in my whiskey
Raise a cup up if you with me
I was raised on Merle, raised on Willie
Got my Honky Tonk attitude from Joe Diffie
Daddy did too, it’s family tradition
If someone cranks it up, you can’t help but listen
My upbringing sounds like George Strait singing
And I gotta give props to the radio
‘Cause if you know me, I was raised on country
It’s the only reason that I survived
Every breakup and every party
It’s the soundtrack to my life
It runs deep in my DNA
I was raised on Merle, raised on Willie
Got my Honky Tonk attitude from Joe Diffie
Daddy did too, it’s family tradition
If someone cranks it up, you can’t help but listen
My upbringing sounds like George Strait singing
And I gotta give props to the radio
‘Cause if you know me, I was raised on country
I was raised on country

Learned a lot about living and a little ’bout love
