“Arkansas” by Chris Stapleton
This song was inspired by a road trip Chris Stapleton took through the state of Arkansas, most notably making his way “through the Ozark Mountains” based on his own account. And basically, what he is doing is celebrating Arkansas. The chorus features the singer depicting the state as one big party town. But the verses respectively feature him focusing more on the locality’s natural beauty and general exciting culture, such as barbecue cuisine and the people’s affinity for the sport of football.
And all things considered, what can be definitively ascertained is that Chris really enjoyed his time in Arkansas.
This is a song that Chris Stapleton actually premiered, via live performances, in 2019. But it wasn’t officially released until 23 October 2020, as the third single from his album “Starting Over”.
Stapleton wrote “Arkansas” alongside Mike Campbell, and he produced the track with Dave Cobb.
