by Tia Bailey

Country music star Chris Stapleton recently shared some cute fan encounters. The singer/songwriter revealed which experience was his most memorable.

Stapleton was speaking with Fox News Digital when a viral video was brought up. The country music star met a young girl with autism, and her mother told him that his music is sometimes the only thing that calms her down.

“Well, I was back home, you know, trying to help out,” Stapleton told Fox News Digital. “They got terrible flooding back home…and ran into some folks in Walmart. And it was this the little girl’s mother. And yeah, it was I’m not sure if she knew it was me or not. But, you know, obviously, the music has meant something to her and to her parents.”

He then added: “Those moments are very cool.”

The star recently appeared at the ACM Awards. He was one of the many talented artists being honored at the event.

Singer Vince Gill ended up performing an unreleased song by him and Stapleton at the awards show.

Later after the performance, Stapleton told the audience that he had  “wanted to be” Vince Gill when he was younger. Fans loved the moments we got to see during the show.
