Ryan Upchurch turns "Mud to Gold"

Updated: Mar 8, 2021


Ryan Upchurch has been working magic from the moment he stepped on the scene. His new album is sure to be full of the same greatness. With the album release inching closer, Ryan released some of that magic with a video for the title track, "Mud to Gold".









Everyone saw Ryan share some 'behind the scenes' video via Social Media. It was nice to see the finished product placed with the amazing song. It was a real cool concept for a video.









The video looked back on previous music videos, and showed his growth from then to now. He worked his ass off to make creek mud in pure music gold. Creekers everywhere will agree.


You can scope out the video and the lyrics down below. Let us know what you think in the comments.

Mud to Gold

By Ryan Upchurch


Like mud to gold

mines in this soil

and I bring that soul

and I will never get old

I'm turning mud into gold

Like mud to gold

mines in this soil

and I bring that soul

and I will never get old

I'm turning mud into gold

Dripping in this swamp water

with the snakes, I'm not bothered

I done been backstabbed

in the front back and in the head but

It's good partner and I ain't no beginner

ain't nobody's paid for dinner

I ain't perfect I'm a sinner

underground so warn the devil

all I am is a hellion raising hell

rocking medallions

in 90s model cars standard

holding some hellacious engines

and all this ain't no pretending

my vengeance comes with no mentions

I'm sicker than dirty covid syringes

stuck in you bitches

Yeah you think I'm the cure

and then you all die

I'm asleep in my bed

still blinking one eye

still thinking of lines

to cast in the pines

for ones like me who

lives the same life

just country motherfuckers

in a town with a time way behind

but we still make it shine in the light

Like mud to gold

mines in this soil

and I bring that soul

and I will never get old

I'm turning mud into gold

Like mud to gold

mines in this soil

and I bring that soul

and I will never get old

I'm turning mud into gold

These millionaires don't understand

these label owners don't fuckin get it

If I sign to slavery Ill be shelved up

and dust collected for fucking ages

cuz you can't see no vision

your mind is not connected

you've been blinded by Ferraris

parties and coke base ass records

Everything is yeah yeah yeah

Everything is hit em wit it

Stars are made from walking in the trenches

And it seems like y'all forgettin'

Raps about to fucking come up

Where the fuck your asses come from

What you had to conquer

transferred over into a bunch of small words

for a big impact on people

cuz that's your position as leader

Yeah I'm white and country

spit tobacco like a gunslinger

yeah I put you through the wringer

don't ever shit talk my people

or preacher will shoot and not

think twice about the bullets neither

Like mud to gold

mines in this soil

and I bring that soul

and I will never get old

I'm turning mud into gold

Like mud to gold

mines in this soil

and I bring that soul

and I will never get old

I'm turning mud into gold
