Chris Young broke down while trying to get through his song “Drowning” at the Opry. Chris lost his good friend Adam to a car accident and never written anything about it. One day he says the words just poured out. He performed the song at the Opry a couple of weeks ago. “I thought I was okay at the end of the first chorus, but by verse two, I knew I was in trouble,” Young, 34, recalls to PEOPLE about his emotional performance at the Grand Ole Opry on June 6. “I tried my best to pull myself together, but I just couldn’t. And then the audience all stood up and started applauding, and that was it. I couldn’t finish the song.” Since then the video has gone viral.

Last week, I debuted my new tune Drowning at the @opry and broke down…since then so many people have shared stories of loved ones lost and how they have connected to this song. I want you guys to have this one, and make it your own, so I’m going to release it this Friday. pic.twitter.com/DZU9l7Kwjc
