The wait will soon be over. New music from Chris Young is out this week.

Back in November, Chris Young teased a new song via his Instagram. The video revealed a preliminary mix of his next single "Raised On Country." The tune name-drops several legendary country stars and at least one classic song.

Never play you guys hear anything early... but I love this song, been working on it forever, and I was DEFINITELY #RaisedOnCountry

A post shared by Chris Young (@chrisyoungmusic) on

"I was raised on Merle, raised on Willie / Got my honky-tonk attitude from Joe Diffie / Daddy did too, it's family tradition / When someone cranks it up you can't help but listen / My upbringing sounds like George Strait singing / 'Cause if you know me, I was raised on country."

According to Young, "Raised On Country" will be released on Friday, January 4.
