Hit maker Chris Young is teasing fans with a spiritually charged new track, dropping snippets of a tune called “If That Ain’t God” all over social media.

Posting two different previews of the epic sounding midtempo on Thursday (May 28), Young hasn’t offered much in the way of explanation for the track — other than “it’s a special song.” Instead he’s letting the tune itself do the talking, full of gratitude and big-picture confidence in uncertain times.

All about seeing a guiding hand everywhere he looks, “If That Ain’t God” is a song that recognizes the trouble in the world, but doesn’t dwell on it. Young sings about kids beating cancer and hitting a home run in their first little league game, celebrating the tiny miracles that seem so poignant when we look back. And he contemplates the hardships of his own twisted trail, which ultimately led to a happy life. Pairing his full-bodied baritone with a heavenly blast of modern sonics, he paints the picture of a supreme being who’s always watching.

“If That Ain’t God” was co-written by Young with Matt Roy, Mitchell Oglesby and Greylan James, and there’s no word yet on if or when it will be officially released. Young’s current single is another heavy-hearted anthem, a ballad dedicated to a late friend titled “Drowning.”
