Chris Stapleton And George Strait Team Up For A Willie Nelson Classic, Watch

Chris Stapleton George Strait

Chris Stapleton gave an audience a surprising treat when he walked on stage and helped George Strait sing a Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard classic.

George was playing for a crowd at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on June 8 when he began a cover of Pancho and Lefty, which was already enough to send fans into an uproar. But halfway through, Chris walked on stage to cover Merle’s lyrics, and fans nearly couldn’t handle their excitement—including Kelly Clarkson, who happened to be in the crowd.

As George Strait strummed an interlude, Chris Stapleton nonchalantly walked onto the stage holding his own guitar. It took a moment for fans to realize what was happening. But when they heard Chris start to sing, they exploded in cheers.

Kelly caught a photo of the moment on camera and shared her joy over witnessing the moment with her Instagram fans.

“This is the greatest show I will ever attend,” she captioned alongside of pic of Chris Stapleton on the Megatron. “You are crazy gifted and your whole band is incredible!”

“This is the greatest night ever!” she continued in a second post. “Good God these vocals, the catalog of songs! What a blessing to get to experience this in person.”

Chris Stapleton has been co-headling George Strait’s tour along with Little Big Town since last year. The Grammy winner will be joining The King Of Country for four more concerts this year. They also teamed up for a duet called Honky Tonk Hall of Fame that will drop with George’s Cowboys and Dreamers album on September 6.
