Last night at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, John Mayer brought out a surprise guest, but not before he shared a quick story about how this match made in Heaven came to be.
“I’d like to invite a friend to the stage… now I want to tell you a quick story,” said Mayer.
“I texted this friend and I said, ‘Well, do you wanna do one of your songs or do one of my songs?’ and he said, ‘We could do either or we could just write a song and then go play it when you get into town.’ I said, ‘Challenge accepted.'”
Stapleton then walked to the stage for a performance of their just-written, brand new song, “I Just Remembered That I Didn’t Care,” and stayed for an electric duet of Mayer’s “Slow Dancing In A Burning Room.”
