Chris Stapleton has been bringing new music to his live shows lately which means hopefully a new album is on its way. During his 2019 "All-American Road Show," he's played unreleased tracks including "The Bad Side Of The Blood," "Minimum Wage," and the latest "Get Down To Arkansas."
"Get Down To Arkansas" was initially debuted at live shows over the summer while on the road with Marcus King and Brent Cobb. Before officially diving into the song, Stapleton explained to the audience that the song originated from a road trip he took from Oklahoma City to Nashville.
"It wasn't that long ago that I had a birthday, and I happen to like fast cars, somebody here might like fast cars, I don't know," Stapleton says to the crowd. "So my wife bought me a fast car, but the fast car was in Oklahoma City, so me and JT- back there on the bass- got dropped off in Oklahoma City and we drove like a bat out of hell through the Ozark Mountains all the way to Nashville, Tennessee. He adds, "And that's what this song is all about."
Most recently, during a show on October 12 in West Palm Beach, Florida, Stapleton performed "Get Down To Arkansas" but this time alongside fellow country duo, Brothers Osborne. The three talented guys delivered a highly energetic performance, leaving fans eager for the official track release.
"Get Down To Arkansas" is likely to be included on Stapleton's upcoming album although no details on the new project have yet to be officially revealed. The new record will follow up 2017's From A Room, Vol. 2.
Stapleton recently announced his plans to host a benefit concert back in his home state of Kentucky called "A Concert For Kentucky." The show will take place on April 25 at Kentucky's Kroger Field. In addition to performances from Stapleton the event will also feature other acts including Willie Nelson & Family, Sheryl Crow, and country-soul singer, Yola.
