White Horse Info:

• "White Horse" is a song by American singer-songwriter Chris Stapleton, released on July 21, 2023 as the lead single from his fifth studio album Higher.

• Chris Stapleton stated via iHeart Country:
"White Horse" was a song that I wrote with my friend, Dan Wilson. We were out in Los Angeles, it was about I think probably late 2012, early 2013, and there was a movie called The Lone Ranger that was coming out, and I walked in the room to write with Dan at his house, and he said, "Hey they're looking for songs for this Lone Ranger movie." I said, "Cool. Let's write something. What do you know about it?" He goes, "Well, we don't really know anything." I was like, "Well, let's just make a song that might sound like that." And so, that's kind of where that came from, and we got to talking about how it would be cool to have a kind of rock-driven-western-themed song, and that's kind of where the song came from and we kind of built it around a guitar riff, really."

•Lyrically, Stapleton tells his imaginary partner that he needs time to open his heart to her and confesses he is not ready to be the man she desires, so she must wait.

•"White Horse"reached the US Billboard Hot 100 No. 12, US Adult Alternative Songs (Billboard) No. 20, US Country Airplay (Billboard) No. 11, and US Hot Country Songs (Billboard) No. 5.
