Chris Stapleton Finally Releases Longtime Fan Favorite “You Should Probably Leave”

Becky Fluke

How long have we been waiting for this song?

The first time I wrote about this song was back in 2016. Some random person at a Chris Stapleton show filmed an unreleased song with their cellphone, and that was all it took. I was hooked… and so was everybody else.

Flashforward to today, we have the release of Chris’ 4th studio album, Starting Over, and the wait is finally over. Written by Ashley Gorley, Chris DuBois and Chris himself, “You Should Probably Leave,” tells the story as old as time… bad decisions.

“Cause I know you, And you know me
And we both know, Where this is gonna lead
And you want me to say, That I want you to stay
So you should probably leave
Yeah you should probably leave.”

Who hasn’t been there?
