Chris Stapleton books a trip to "Detroit City" with Hall-of-Famer Bobby Bare

The song, which is alternately known as “I Wanna Go Home,” was co-written by fellow Hall of Famer Mel Tillis. It became Bare’s first top-ten hit in 1963 and went on to win the Grammy for Best Country/Western Recording the next year.

Stapleton’s as-yet-untitled sophomore album is set to come out May 5, several weeks before his “Detroit City” duet is due.
