It’s a song that’s sure to resonate with audiences everywhere. “Goodbye Gasoline’ is about a girl who’s strong and independent,” Colston says. “He knows she’s better off without him, but he hates everything about her leaving – all the way down to the gasoline that fuels her getaway. ”
In Colston’s first new release since 2021’s “Some Hearts Break Easy,” the East Texas native walks a fine line between regret and acceptance as he croons, “Her tank’s full of ‘she won’t be coming back to me — that goodbye gasoline.’”
Since the release of his 2018 debut EP GONE, Colston has developed quite the fan base, amassing more than 13 million streams across various platforms. Known for his high-energy shows and relatable lyrics, he’s toured alongside Texas country mainstays like Eli Young Band and Casey Donahew, as well as contemporary country stars like Koe Wetzel, Parker McCollum, and many more.
Fans of “Goodbye Gasoline” are in luck: “We’re kicking off every show this year with this song — the very first song out of the gate,” Colston says. “I just love the energy and the response of the crowd when we play it live.”

About Chris Colston
Since releasing his debut album BombsAway in 2020, Chris Colston has been sweeping through the Texas music scene. He has built a dedicated fanbase playing sold-out stadium shows with Koe Wetzel and touring with some of the most sought-after performers in the genre, including Parker McCollum, HARDY, Eli Young Band and Casey Donahew.
His musical story began at a young age when his stepfather signed him up for drum lessons, leading him to eventually pick up the guitar. Not long after, he formed his first band and hit the road playing anywhere that would let him in the door. He honed his musical sound playing for some of the most discerning music afficionados in Texas, where the threshold for anything contrived is the distance between the stage and a beer bottle. Finding his voice in an area known for producing outstanding musical talent set the bar and contributed to his personal style, which he describes as “gritty Texas roots combined with rock n’ roll.” Colston is currently in the studio working on a new album, set to be released later this year.
