Chris Young is the self-titled debut album by American country music artist Chris Young, who in 2006 was a winner on the television singing competition Nashville Star. Released on RCA Records Nashville in 2006, the album produced two chart singles for Young on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts: "Drinkin' Me Lonely" and "You're Gonna Love Me", which respectively reached No. 42 and No. 48.

The song "Flowers" was originally recorded by its co-writer, Billy Yates, who released it as a single from his self-titled debut album in 1997. "Beer or Gasoline" was co-written by David Lee Murphy and Ira Dean, the latter of whom was bassist for Trick Pony at the time.


Critical reception

Thom Jurek of Allmusic rated the album three stars out of five, criticizing Buddy Cannon's "generic" production but praising the neotraditionalist country sound of the album as well as Young's voice.[1]
