Back in June, it was revealed that country powerhouse Chris Stapleton had plans to release a new song with two big-name collaborators…Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars.

Even though they don’t make country music themselves, Sheeran and Mars share ties to the genre. Mars grew up as a young Elvis Presley impersonator, and Sheeran has often collaborated with country singers. In addition to singing with Taylor Swift during her country days, he has also penned some country songs.

One of the songs Sheeran wrote was Keith Urban‘s “Parallel Line.” He also co-wrote a new song of Kenny Chesney‘s called “Tip of My Tongue.”

So when it was revealed that Stapleton would be collaborating with Sheeran and Mars, fans were understandably pumped.

Finally, their collaboration was released with a bang on the 4th of July.

The new song, titled “BLOW,” can be found on Sheeran’s upcoming record No. 6 Collaborations Project. Stapleton and Mars are just two of 22 total collaborators who contributed to the project.

When asked by Rolling Stone what it was like to create “BLOW” with the two superstar artists, Sheeran had this to say.

Bruno, Chris and I had a lot of fun recording,” he said. “Play them loud, tell your mates, enjoy.

You are sure to enjoy the guitar-heavy “BLOW” as soon as you start listening to it. 

Even though Chris is a featured vocalist on the sultry song, he doesn’t take a back seat. He powers through an entire verse and chorus, and his gravelly voice enhances the song’s gritty, rock and roll vibe.

We could talk up this song all day, but nothing beats hearing it with your own ears. Go ahead and check out its official lyric video below, then let us know what you think when you finish!
