Hear Chris Stapleton’s Solo Version of ‘Midnight Train to Memphis’ [LISTEN]

Chris Stapleton‘s From A Room: Volume 2 includes a song that SteelDrivers fans will find familiar: “Midnight Train to Memphis.” Originally recorded by the bluegrass band, the song is Track No. 7 on Stapleton’s upcoming new solo album, and has been shipped to AAA, rock, non-commercial and Americana radio as a single.

“Midnight Train to Memphis” was written by Stapleton and his former SteelDrivers’ bandmate Mike Henderson. Official, studio-quality audio of the song has not yet been released, but fans can watch Stapleton perform “Midnight Train to Memphis” live during his Summer 2017 All-American Road Show Tour above.

“Forty days of shotguns and barbed-wire fences / Forty nights to sit and listen to the midnight train to Memphis,” Stapleton sings in “Midnight Train to Memphis.” “Well now, 10 for the jury, 10 for the judge / Twenty more to forget my grudge / When I get to 39 / That’s the longest day in a prisoner’s mind.”

The SteelDrivers included their version of “Midnight Train to Memphis” on 2008’s The SteelDrivers, released via Rounder Records. The album hit No. 2 on the bluegrass charts.

From A Room: Volume 2 will be Stapleton’s second record of 2017. From A Room: Volume 1 dropped on May 5, and Volume 2 is set for release on Dec. 1. The project features nine tracks, seven of which were co-written by Stapleton.
