Justin Timberlake is a household name in the music industry! He is primarily recognized for his pop and R&B songs and collaborations, but his versatility as a songwriter has led him to explore collaborations with artists in the country genre. In fact, there are only TWO country artists that have written songs for Justin Timberlake‘s projects. Those artists are Chris Stapleton and Toby Keith. Who knew, right? toby keith on stage

Toby Keith is obviously a prominent figure in country music. He has consistently delivered chart-topping hits throughout his career. Songs like “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” set the tone for his career with its nostalgic charm. “How Do You Like Me Now?!” showcased his signature rebellious attitude. “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American)” became an anthem of patriotism. Toby Keith’s catalog is a testament to his incredible songwriting. That’s one of the reasons Justin Timberlake wrote “Sauce” with him.

“Ooh, sauceUh, you got all of itYeahYou know, you got all of itYou got all of itGo ‘head”- “Sauce”

And then there’s Chris Stapleton, a powerhouse in the realm of country music. Stapleton has left an indelible mark not only as a solo artist but also as a sought-after songwriter for other musicians. Stapleton has penned chart-topping songs for artists like Kenny Chesney (“Never Wanted Nothing More”) and Luke Bryan (“Drink a Beer”).

Whether performing his own songs or lending his pen to others, Chris Stapleton’s music continues to captivate radio audiences with its authenticity and timeless appeal. It’s no wonder why Justin Timberlake wanted to work with Chris Stapleton on songs like “Say Something,” “Morning Light,” and “The Hard Stuff.”
