Chris Stapleton + Pink’s Collaboration, ‘Love Me Anyway’, Is Now a Radio Single [LISTEN]
Country hitmaker Chris Stapleton and pop powerhouse Pink are sending their collaboration "Love Me Anyway" to country radio. Readers can press play above to hear the piano ballad.
Pink's voice shines, with just a hint of hurt, as Stapleton adds harmonies beginning in the second verse. In a bridge, they trade lines: "Could you / Could you still love me? / Could you / Pick up the pieces of me? / Could you / Could you still love me? / Could you love me anyway?"
Pink co-wrote "Love Me Anyway" with Allen Shamblin and Thomas Douglas. The song comes from her newest album Hurts 2B Human, released in late April.
"Love Me Anyway" isn't Stapleton's first foray into the world of pop music: He's worked with superstar Justin Timberlake a number of times, including on the song "Say Something," from Timberlake's Man of the Woods album. Additionally, powerhouse vocalist Adele recorded a cover of the SteelDrivers' "If It Hadn't Been for Love," co-written by Stapleton and his former bandmate Mike Henderson, for her album 21.
Pink, meanwhile, is no stranger to country and folk music, either. In 2016, she recorded a Grammy-winning duet alongside Kenny Chesney, "Setting the World on Fire," and in 2017, she performed her song "Barbies" -- co-written and co-produced by Ross Golan, who co-penned Keith Urban's "Shame" and Lady Antebellum's "Compass" -- at the CMA Awards. Pink has also worked with the Indigo Girls, and as one-half of the folk duo You+Me with Canadian singer-songwriter Dallas Green.
