Chris Stapleton appeared on A Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday night to perform his new song, “Devil Always Made Me Think Twice”. The track, written by Stapleton and Al Anderson, appears as the second track on his latest album, Starting Over, which recently debuted in the top spot on the Billboard Country Albums chart.
Stapleton and his band performed the gritty country-blues number from a saloon-like studio space. The lyrical content matches the ominous sonics on the track as the alt-country star growls, “Jesus tried to steer me in the right direction but the devil always made me think twice.” Watch Chris Stapleton perform “Devil Always Made Me Think Twice” on Colbert below:
