Chris Stapleton needs a little time. He’s not ready for love, even though he loves deeply and with abandon. “White Horse” thumps its way down a dusty backroad, kicking up dirt and gravel. Unsurprisingly, Stapleton is unforgiving with a blistering, heaven-bound vocal performance that squeezes every bit of emotion from your heart. “If you want a cowboy on a white horse riding off into the sunset,” he admits. “If that’s the kinda love you wanna wait for, hold on tight, girl, I ain’t there yet.” He might not be ready now, but he could be. It’ll just take a little time.
