Chris Young offered fans a taste of new music on Wednesday (May 27) with the release of a snippet of a new song called “If That Ain’t God.”
Young teased the uplifting, faith-filled track across his social media accounts. Although he shared only the first verse and chorus, the song’s message immediately resonated with fans, who went on to beg the country hitmaker to release the full song.
“If That Ain’t God” finds Young recognizing God’s presence after hearing a news story about a boy in his hometown who beat cancer. Reminiscent of the ’90s country era, the track is a true story song. Songs like this are what country music was built on and where Young shines the brightest.
“If that ain’t God/ If that ain’t him/ If that ain’t the man upstairs somewhere lookin’ down on us again/ Don’t it make you wanna pray/ Don’t it make you wanna live/ If that ain’t God/ If that ain’t God/ I don’t know what is,” Young sings on the chorus.

Fans have been patiently waiting for Young to release the follow-up to his 2017 Losing Sleep album. The singer/songwriter had originally planned to release a new album in 2019, however, that album release was shifted and no new plans have been revealed yet.
Throughout the past year, Young has shared a few new tracks with fans, including “Raised On Country,” the deeply emotional “Drowning” and “Town Ain’t Big Enough,” a duet with Lauren Alaina. He also teased a collaboration with Kane Brown that is likely to appear on his forthcoming project.
