Chris Stapleton’s new song, “Arkansas” is available now, October 28th, on all streaming platforms. Inspired by a recent drive across the state, take a look below as we dive deeper into the track.
Chris Stapleton is most definitely an icon of modern country music, and his releases continue to live up to the throne he’s on. With a strong electric guitar intro, and the first line coming completely unexpectedly, Stapleton makes sure that you hear this song and listen to him. His unique voice and depth of graininess in tone never fail to relay the bootstrapped version of country so many of his fans know all too well.
Inspired by a recent trip Stapleton and his wife took across the state, he paints a picture of everyone there having a ball and that the fun is so outlandish, it might just be against the law. The mention of the Ozark mountains colors an image that anyone could long for, and with the added mention of a good time, sounds sure to make an impression.
“Well, we burned through the one light towns like a scalded dog / When we lit out of Fayetteville, they were callin’ the hogs / We made a pit stop in Little Rock for some barbecue / And when we hit West Memphis there were blue lights in our rearview”
Maybe Arkansas really is the place to visit, driving the open roads, windows down, with “Arkansas” itself playing. This song will be included on his upcoming album Starting Over, out Nov. 13.
