Interesting facts and trivia about Arkansas. By Songfacts®.

On this driving southern stomp, Chris Stapleton recounts a road trip he took through the Ozarks mountains. Took a Nine Eleven 'bout a hundred and seven down a back road Where the white river runs and the southern sun makes the kudzu grow And what I found in the Ozark mountains I ain't ever seen It sure does feel like you're sittin' on the top of the world to me

Stapleton began playing "Arkansas" during some of his late 2019 live shows. He explained that the song was born when his wife, Morgane, gave him an Irish-green Porsche 911 for his birthday. Stapleton drove the car, accompanied by his bass player, from Oklahoma City back home to his Tennessee ranch.

Stapleton wrote the jangly Southern rocker with Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. The pair first met when Stapleton opened for the band at Chicago's Wrigley Field in 2017. They stayed in touch and the Nashville star traveled to Los Angeles to write with Campbell.
