Justin Timberlake and Chris Stapleton brought the house down with an epic country duet at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday night, and the "Mirrors" singer took to Instagram on Thursday to rave about his friend and fellow musician.
"About last night... I've been friends with @castapleton and his lovely wife Morgane for a couple of years now, but sometimes you meet people and feel like you've known them your whole life," Timberlake captioned a shot of him and Stapleton after their duet. "He is one of THE MOST gifted musicians, songwriters, and vocalists I've ever met. So stoked to share this moment with him and watch him put the WHOLE WORLD on notice."
Timberlake and Stapleton, joined by a massive backing band as well as Morgane on harmonies, brought the crowd to their feet Wednesday with a rendition of "Tennessee Whiskey," followed by Timberlake’s single "Drink You Away."
"So happy for you brother," Timberlake continued in his raving message to Stapleton. "Chalk one up for the good guys."
It’s not the first time JT has sung the praises of Stapleton, a former bluegrass singer who took home New Artist of the Year honors at the CMA Awards. Timberlake put fans on notice last December with a simple tweet.
"REAL music fans already know. So, mainstream: @ChrisStapleton. Remember that name…," the singer tweeted last year.
Fellow country star Miranda Lambert raved about the pair’s duet, tweeting that she’ll "never get over that performance." And she’s not the only one. Fans immediately took to social media to demand more from both singers and encourage Timberlake to keep going country.
I know I'm a day late to this one but I'm all for JT making a country album.
