“I’ve played everything from my living room to stadiums with these guys. They’ve seen me on my best & worst days and had my back the whole time. They are some of the best friends a man could ask for and my musical brothers.” Now that is a message. You can tell that Chris Stapleton and his band are close with one another, through the lows and all of the Grammy wins.

After so many years working with artists across genres, Justin Timberlake comes to mind, and Chris Stapleton has his eyes on a new collab. While talking to the media, the Grammy-award-winning artist was asked about who he would like to collab within the near future. He had to think about it, but he came up with a very interesting answer.

“There are lots and lots of people. But you know, I do those things when they come up and when the time is right and they all happen organically,” he said. “I don’t have a specific answer for you, probably, because I’m blanking right now. There are so many great artists.”

Then, he thought about it for a second.

“I like Harry Styles a lot. Harry Styles is making some really great music, he’s a great singer, great songwriter. Yeah.”

Whatever Chris Stapleton puts out, I’m going to listen. While Styles might not be a conventional choice, neither was Adele or Ed Sheeran, or Tom Morello… Stapleton x Styles. Fingers crossed it happens?
