The lead single and title track from Chris Young's sixth album, the singer penned this song with his frequent co-writers Chris DeStefano and Josh Hoge. However, the writing session that led to "Losing Sleep" was the first time that all three men had collaborated together. Young told The Boot
"I had written a lot of songs with Chris DeStefano; I love that guy - so insanely talented. And I had written, obviously, a lot of songs with Josh Hoge, but the three of us had not gotten together. I was like, 'Man, I just think that combination would be really, really cool.'
I asked Chris, 'Hey, do you mind writing at the end of the year?' Because some people don't - some people shut it down; they need to take time. I was really in a mode where I wanted to keep writing and felt like I had some stuff to say. He was like, 'Man, I'm fine with that. We'll get in and see what we get.'
That was our first co-write, the three of us together. So we were like, 'Okay, this works. This is cool.'"
