"Sober Saturday Night" is a song recorded by American country music singers Chris Young and Vince Gill. It was released in June 6, 2016 as the third and final single from Young's fifth studio album, I'm Comin' Over (2015).[1] Young co-wrote the track with The Warren Brothers and assisted Corey Crowder with production.

Critical reception

The staff of Taste of Country described the song as both a "vocal showcase" and a "personal performance." The blog also noted that the contrast between the two vocalists' tones "makes the unlikely pair a compelling listen."[2]

Commercial performance

The song reached No. 4 on the Hot Country Songs, and No. 1 on the Country Airplay chart, making it Young's third consecutive number one, his eighth overall, and Gill's sixth number one and his first since "Tryin' to Get Over You" in 1994. It also reached No. 47 on the Billboard 100. It has sold 204,000 copies as of March 2017.[3]

Music video

A lyric video for the song was posted to Young's Vevo channel on November 6, 2015 during the lead-up to the album's release.[4] The official music video was directed by David Poag and premiered July 14, 2016.[5] Similar to the story told by the lyrics, the video depicts a man who appears to be recovering from a hangover but who is actually "adapting to a new normal" without the influence of alcohol, with the bar scenes implied to be flashbacks to the man's troubled past.[5]
