At The End Of A Bar was written by Chris Young, Mitchell Tenpenny and Chris DeStefano.
“We were just talking about how Mitchell and I met. I said Mitchell and I met at the end of a bar, and Mitchell said That’s the song title. That’s the song we’re gonna write today.”
It is the fourth single from Young’s eighth studio album Famous Friends.
Chris and Mitchell wrote the song in February 2021 during an ice storm in Nashville, Tennessee. The title came from Tenpenny recalling how he met Young.
“It’s a true testament to never skip a day of work because you never know what you might write. It’s also a hell of a lot of fun to sing, and Mitchell Tenpenny and I had entirely too much fun stacking vocals on this, so we had to make it a duet.”
Thanks to ALL OF YOU, At The End Of A Bar is officially my 13th NUMBER 1! Pretty crazy to think that Gettin’ You Home was my first number 1 in 2009 & I can’t believe my career has grown so much since then! Thanks for writing & singing this one with me @m10penny! @destefanomusic pic.twitter.com/d4GHqpSVY8

“I’m just so excited to have a number one with this song. It’s a special song and a great story about how it was written. Even cooler to have it with some of my best buddies. Chris has become one of my best friends, so to get to celebrate this together is special in itself. And I can’t express enough how amazing Chris DeStefano is. His talent and his energy in the room is unmatched. We’ve written some of my favorite songs together and I’m just honored to share a #1 with these incredible men.”
