Back In 2010, Dierks Bentley Called Chris Stapleton “The Best Singer In The World”

A man and a woman

A few years ago, Chris Stapleton was the best kept secret in music, except it wasn’t a secret to anyone actually in music.

With the release of Dierks Bentley’s bluegrass-inspired (and incredible) album The Mountain, I dove back into Up On The Ridge, Dierks’ bluegrass project from back in 2010.

Lo and behold, I stumble upon this hidden gem from back in the studio and you can hear Dierks say “Chris is probably the best singer in the world,” in regards to him laying down some powerful background vocals on “Fallin’ For You.”

Now here we are ten years later, everybody knows it, and Chris is a full-blown superstar.

And still… the best singer in the world.

Hear Dierks and Chris sing “Fallin’ For You.”
