On Sunday night, Charles Wesley Godwin's touching ode to West Virginia made its way into Episode 8 of Tulsa King. The new Paramount+ series follows a veteran mafia boss as he returns to the field, following a prolonged stint in prison.

Wesley Godwin's wistful, bittersweet track pays tribute to the Appalachian terrain that has long served as his home.

He documents the troubles that now plague parts of the region, from drug abuse to poverty, but underpins it all with a sense of pride at having grown up in ‘Coal Country’.

The track joins a star-studded array of songs that have so far been featured in Tulsa King's debut season. These include the likes of ‘Beer Can’ by Luke Combs, ‘Paycheck to Paycheck’ by Midland and ‘Them Stems’ by Chris Stapleton.

Charles Wesley Godwin recently appeared in the latest episode of Zach Bryan's Belting Bronco live series, during which he performed ‘Jesse’ and ‘Strong’ from the back of a Ford, as he travelled across Oklahoma with his band, The Allegheny High.

During the Belting Bronco episode, Wesley Godwin also teamed up with Zach Bryan for a heart-wrenching performance of ‘Jamie’, which originally featured on the latter's 2022 EP, Summertime Blues.

The duo joined forces once again for a cover of John Denver's ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’ for Zach Bryan's new live album, All My Homies Hate Ticketmaster (Live From Red Rocks). The proejct was released on Christmas Day.
