Stop What You’re Doing and Listen to Chris Stapleton’s “Millionaire”


I’m not saying this lightly– I think this might be my favorite Chris Stapleton song. “Millionaire” is the first release off Stapleton’s upcoming From A Room: Vol. 2 and it’s classic Stapleton, but softer almost. Surprisingly, but not shockingly because classic Stapleton is all about a cover– this is a cover of Kevin Welch’s 2001 release.

Welch wrote the tune, but Stapleton with help from wife Morgane really brings it to life. The phrases are simple, but seem new when the Stapleton’s put their vocals to work on the track.

Love is more precious than gold
It can’t be bought, and it can’t be sold
I’ve got love enough to spare
That makes me a millionaire
I’ve got a woman
With eyes that shine
Down deep
As a diamond mine
She is my treasure
So very rare
She’s made me
A millionaire
When we ride around
This old town
In my beat up car
With the windows down
People look at her
Then they look at me
Say that man
Is sure living in luxury
Repeat chorus
Her kisses fall
From everywhere
Like riches on
A millionaire
So when my pocketaˆ™s are empty
And my cupboard is bare
I still feel
Like a millionaire
