Chris Stapleton Takes Johnny Cash’s ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ Straight to Funky Town
Since its release in 1955, Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues" has been recorded by so many greats including Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, and Brooks & Dunn. But have you heard Chris Stapleton's take the classic country song to funky town?
Stapleton is a verifiable country music star now. Do you remember when he made his leap into to country music's spotlight following his CMA performance with Justin Timberlake? Would you believe me if I told you that was almost 4 years ago? It was, November 2015.
Since then Stapleton has had three of the biggest selling albums in country music, Traveller, From a Room Vol.1, and From a Room Vol. 2. The world knows Chris Stapleton, very well in fact. But have you heard him get funky with some Johnny Cash yet?
