Chris Stapleton made the best use of his time while he was in New York collecting three Grammy awards—Best Country Album, Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance— on Sunday night (Jan. 28).
The “Nobody To Blame” singer high-tailed it over to the “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Tuesday night (Jan. 30) to be a part of a special live episode. Chris performed the song “Drunkard’s Prayer,” co-penned by Chris and Jameson Clark, from his current album, From A Room: Vol. 2.
“When I get drunk, and talk to God / I say I’m sorry for all the things I’m not / I mean every word I say / And I promise I can change / When I get drunk, and talk to God,” Chris kicks off the song.
Four spotlights placed behind Chris set the mood for the soulful rendition. With just an acoustic guitar and his gravelly vocals, Chris was able to send chills down the spine of those in listening proximity. The show’s host, Stephen, was moved by the performance, telling the singer, “Beautiful man, thank you.”
Chris previously hit the small screen with as the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” the night before the Grammy awards. Next up for the balladeer is his 2018 All-American Road Show Tour with Marty Stuart and Brent Cobb.
