These days, there aren’t a lot of country music artists that truly embody the aspect of storytelling in their music. Carrie Underwood does it, just like Reba McEntire did it before her and Chris Stapleton nails it during his newly released “Scarecrow in the Garden.”
“Scarecrow in the Garden” was written by Stapleton, Brice Long and Matt Fleener and recorded in the historic RCA Studio A with harmonies from the incomparable Morgane Stapleton.
The song is the story of generational farmers in West Virginia who passed the land down from one son to another before the land eventually let them down.
The song is the second new material unveiled from Stapleton’s anticipated new album, From A Room: Volume 2, which will be released December 1 on Mercury Records Nashville and is now available to pre-order digitally and with exclusive limited-edition bundles.
