Top 6 Unforgettable Chris Stapleton Moments
From award show sweeps to dream collaborations, the fall of 2015 and onward has been Chris Stapleton‘s year. Fans of traditional country music have a new hero, fans of modern country music think he’s great, too, and even the most cringeworthy words sound like honey when he sings them.
Readers can press play on the video above to re-live some of Stapleton’s most unforgettable career moments. Of course, his collaboration with Justin Timberlake at the 2015 CMA Awards was epic, but don’t forget about some of his other, equally remarkable moments: Stapleton’s cover of Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin'” with Maren Morris (at the historic Ryman Auditorium, no less!) was truly mesmerizing … not to mention that time when Anderson East and Miranda Lambert joined him and wife Morgane onstage for a rousing rendition of “My Girl.”
Whether he was revealing new songs on Saturday Night Live or creating powerful music videos that bring light to mental health issues, Stapleton has also given many an unforgettable performance on his own. And in the middle of winning big at not one, not two, but three award shows (the CMA Awards, the ACM Awards and, oh yeah, the Grammys), he even had time to pay beautiful homage to the legendary Prince.
