Is Chris Stapelton’s ‘Midnight Train To Memphis’ A Hit

Chris Stapleton has made a name for himself as a powerful vocalist and impressive guitar player, and his new single, “Midnight Train to Memphis,” exemplifies his talent.

“Midnight Train to Memphis” appears on From A Room: Volume 2, the second project Stapleton released in 2017. Co-written by the rising star and Mike Henderson — one of the founding members of bluegrass group the SteelDrivers — “Midnight Train to Memphis” has long been a staple in the singer’s live shows.

Stapleton sings of being stuck in jail for a miserable 40 days for not being able to pay his fine. Alongside gritty electric guitar and his soulful baritone, he keeps his listener intrigued on the mesmerizing track.

“Forty days of shotguns and barbed wire fences / Forty nights to sit and listen / To the midnight train to Memphis,”Stapleton croons on the chorus.

With plenty of grungy electric guitar and a memorable percussion beat, the musical accompaniment adequately portrays the frustration of a man stuck in jail counting down the days until his freedom.
