Chris Stapleton Performing New Song During NASCAR Awards Show on Wednesday

Chris Stapleton will be kicking off the NASCAR awards tonight with the TV debut of his brand new song, "Arkansas."

"Arkansas" is featured on Stapleton's new album Starting Over that dropped last week and it's pretty fitting for an award show that features fast cars. The lyrics in "Arkansas" talk about driving a Porsche 911 over 100 mph across the country while running from the law. He mentions stopping in Little Rock for BBQ and driving through Memphis with "blue lights in our rearview."

The ceremony will take place on Wednesday, November 18 on the NBC Sports Network at 8 p.m. ET.
