Rocking the charts with his debut album wasn't an easy task for Chris Stapleton, but his incredible strength as both a songwriter and natural country sound brought a refreshing new tune forward that people can't get enough of. 

Spending nearly two decades as a renowned songwriter garnered Stapleton the notoriety that he needed to launch himself as an artist. Beginning in 2013, he signed with Mercury Nashville and launched a single that didn't perform very well and the corresponding record was never released. 

For almost two years, Stapleton went back to the drawing board and began writing new music focused around events in his life, with the biggest being the passing of his father at the end of 2013. 

"I needed a little head clearing space," Stapleton remembered. "My wife had the presence of mind to know me well enough that I needed that. She bought me an old jeep out in Phoenix, Arizona, and we flew out there and decided to drive it home." 

"Along the way, just driving through the desert, I was thinking about life and how we're all just passing through it and that's what the song is."

Returning to his hometown of Lexington, Kentucky, Stapleton gave locals a truly one-of-a-kind concert in a small record store. During this performance, you can hear the passion in his voice and feel how deeply the music resonates within him as an artist.

LYRICS BELOW

I see the sunrise creeping in
Everything changes like the desert wind
Here she comes and then she's gone again

I'm just a traveler on this earth
Sure as my heart's behind the pocket of my shirt
I'll just keep rolling till I'm in the dirt
'Cause I'm a traveler, oh, I'm a traveler
I couldn't tell you honey, I don't know
Where I'm going but I've got to go
'Cause every turn reveals some other road
And I'm a traveler, oh, I'm a traveler

My heartbeat's rhythm is a lonesome sound
Just like the rubber turning on the ground
Always lost and nowhere bound
I'm just a traveler on this earth
Sure as my heart's behind the pocket of my shirt
I'll just keep rolling till I'm in the dirt
'Cause I'm a traveler, oh, I'm a traveler
I couldn't tell you honey, I don't know
Where I'm going but I've got to go
'Cause every turn reveals some other road
And I'm a traveler, oh, I'm a traveler

When I'm gone
Somebody else will have to feel this wrong
Somebody else will have to sing this song
Somebody else will have to sing along
Sing along

I'm just a traveler on this earth
Sure as my heart's behind the pocket of my shirt
I'll just keep rolling till I'm in the dirt
'Cause I'm a traveler, oh, I'm a traveler
I couldn't tell you honey, I don't know
Where I'm going but I've got to go
'Cause every turn reveals some other road
And I'm a traveller, oh, I'm a traveller
