Behind The Song ACM Awards Edition: Chris Young 'I'm Comin' Over'

By Brian Ives,

"Some people call it a 'breakup song,'" Young told of his hit "I'm Comin' Over."

"I don't necessarily know if it is a 'breakup song.' The song never really says that they break up. There's this rough patch, this on-again/off-again thing, is it gonna work? Is it not? There's a bunch of stuff that needs to be said and needs to be discussed, and you need closure."

Whatever it was about, it resonated with fans, topping the U.S. Country Airplay charts. It also earned Young a nomination for Single Record of the Year at this year's ACM Awards.

The album I'm Comin' Over is also nominated for Album of the Year.
