Country singer Chris Stapleton and pop singer Pink have a new song together called “Love Me Anyway” for her new album called “Hurts 2B Human”. The piano ballad is a collaboration of two artists from two very different genres coming together to create a stunningly beautiful song.
Pink co-wrote the track with Allen Shamblin and Tom Douglas, who are the writers behind Miranda Lambert’s hit song “The House That Built Me.” With the help of the pop star, the duo has created another personal song that will for sure be making its way to the top of the charts.
“Love Me Anyway” shows a vulnerable side of both artists. It’s about a girl asking her significant other could he love her no matter how mean she may get, if they’re miles apart from each other, if she flirts with someone else, etc. These questions are 100% relatable as who hasn’t asked their significant other if they would love you anyway even if you did something stupid?
Stapleton’s iconic voice comes in just shy of the second chorus but shows his true talent in the last minute of the song when you hear him sing, “Could you? (Could you still love me?) / Could you? (Pick up the pieces of me?) / Could you? (Could you still love me?) / Could you love me anyway?”
This isn’t the first time Stapleton has crossed over into the pop world as he is known for collaborating with Justin Timberlake on the song “Say Something” as well as their iconic performance together at the 2015 CMA Awards. It’s also not Pink’s first time teaming up with a country artist as she can be heard with Kenny Chesney on the award-winning song “Setting the World on Fire.”
Stapleton has been busy lately. Did you know he made his acting debut in the latest ‘Game of Thrones’ episode as a White Walker? He is also currently on tour and will be making a stop at the PNC Bank Arts Center on August 9th! Get your tickets here.
