Tracy Lawrence & Chris Young recently sat down together to sing a duet. Lawrence played guitar, and he and Young took turns singing Lawrence’s own song, “Find Out Who Your Friends Are.”
One could speculate that the duo collaborated to perform this song in response to the aftermath of Young’s recent arrest.
On the evening of January 22, Chris Young encountered trouble when he and his friends started recording ABC officers during a compliance check at Tin Roof Bar. Their documentation continued as they followed the officers next door to Dawg House Saloon, allegedly resulting in an altercation.
Initial reports based on the arrest affidavit suggested Young prevented officers from leaving and allegedly “struck” one on the shoulder, creating a “hostile” atmosphere in the bar.
Turns out, new security camera footage shows Young never actually put his hand on the officer.
Charges against Young were dropped soon after the incident.
Casey Beathard and Ed Hill co-wrote “Find Out Who Your Friends Are.” Lawrence released the song in 2006 as a single from his album For the Love.
The lyrics of “Find Out Who Your Friends Are” convey a message about the true nature of relationships, especially during difficult times. The narrative centers around a man experiencing tough situations, such as a broken-down truck and financial troubles. In these moments of adversity, he discovers who his true friends are—those who are willing to lend a helping hand and offer support when times are tough.
Essentially, the meaning behind “Find Out Who Your Friends Are” most likely resonates with Chris Young at the moment. Hopefully, he had people sticking by his side for support.
On Young’s recent post of him and Lawrence singing together, fans eagerly shared words of encouragement for the country singer.
“So happy you were able to get the true story out there Chris,” commented one fan.
“Chris your music is never ending and makes you feel loved and happy I love your music keep them coming I will always buy your music love you,” said another follower.
“Glad you were cleared of the charges. Looks like your friends are there for you when you need them. Tracy is a good dude,” wrote another supporter.
