Album: Losing Sleep (2017)
  • Young takes it slow with this feel-good smooth jam, which paints a picture of a romance that's like a break from real life:

    You make me want to make a margarita
    You make me want to put on my shades
    You take me on a trip around the world
    Don't need to hop a plane

    Young is telling his girl that she makes every day feel like a holiday.
  • Young co-wrote this fun song along with Cary Barlowe, Johnny Bulford and Corey Crowder. "We were in Florida so we were like 'Let's write something that's got a vacation vibe to it,'" he explained to "I think from the jump, having that line at the top of the chorus takes you there immediately –'You make me wanna make a margarita'–you could call it 'The Margarita Song.'"
