Chris Young performs onstage during the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena on April 15, 2018 in Las Vegas.

Country artist Chris Young released his seventh studio album in October called Losing Sleep. The lead single and title track from the album marked his ninth No. 1 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart. The second track, "Hangin' On," was released earlier this year and has so far peaked at No. 8 on the Hot Country Songs chart dated Nov. 10. 

In the song, Young sings about falling for a girl that he meets one night and how he's "hangin' on" to every word she says. A music video was released for the single, featuring clips of a couple enjoying their date at the beach intercut with Young performing the song onstage. By the end of the video, the couple ends up at his concert, dancing to the music. 

Check out the lyrics and music video for the feel-good song "Hangin' On" below. 

I'm a few drinks in, but that ain't the reason
I'm all tongue tied and my breath's leaving this fast
I can't get past those blue eyes shining
They keep drawing me in to you
Got me fallin' off track
You get me like that

Yeah I'm hangin' on, hangin' on
To every word you say, every move you make
I'm hangin' on, hangin' on
Wondering what's up next
Girl, I can't wait
Ain't nothing like spinning you around the room
Where everyone can see
You hangin' on, hangin' on to me

It ain't the song, and it ain't the playlist
It's every smile coming off of your sweet lips, yeah
That makes me wanna stay here
No, this ain't a one night, one time thing
You always light me up like a flame and it's clear
Every time you're near

Yeah I'm hangin' on, hangin' on
To every word you say
Every move you make
I'm hangin' on, hangin' on
Wondering what's up next
Girl, I can't wait
Ain't nothing like spinning you around the room
Where everyone can see
You hangin' on, hangin' on to me
Yeah, you hangin' on to me

So let me pull you a little closer
Even when the music's over

I'll be hangin' on, hangin' on
To every word you say
Every move you make
I'm hangin' on, hangin' on
Wondering what's up next
Girl, I can't wait
Ain't nothing like spinning you around the room
Where everyone can see
You hangin' on, hangin' on to me
Yeah, you hangin' on to me
