Chris Young's latest single, "I Can Take It From There" is the fourth release from his album Neon, and it's already a Top 30 hit and climbing. Chris, who wrote the tune with Rhett Akins and Ben Hayslip, says it's his co-writers who deserve much of the credit for the song's success.
"I had no idea that day walking in; I had nothing," Chris admitted to The Boot and other reporters at a recent media event, speaking of the writing session that spawned the hit tune. "It was actually Ben's idea. He was like, 'What do you think of something like this?' I said, 'I don't really have something like that for the record.' I think we wrote it in about an hour and went to lunch. It was a really simple day. I found that the majority of the stuff I'm putting on a record doesn't take all day. We all like the idea and we've got the right melody for the idea. [When] it's all marrying correctly, it falls out pretty quick. It might get stumped on a line here or there, really trying to hammer out what the best way is to say it, but most of the time that's how it happens. If we've got the idea and everybody's on the same track, it falls out pretty quick."
