We have another Triple Shot today about starting things over in the New Year. If you’re trying to become the person you want to be, you have to look in the mirror and start with that person – you can’t make excuses or blame others. Stick to it day by day and by the end of the year; you will be better than you used to be.

Chris Young’s “The Man I Want to Be” was written by Brett James and Tim Nichols. It was released in November 2009 as the third single from his second album “The Man I Want to Be.” The song was his second consecutive No.1 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
