Trying to cover Chris Stapleton is for the most part, a fool’s endeavor. Many have tried, most have epically failed. Chris Kläfford is another story.
Not only does he look like Stapleton’s long lost twin brother, he can definitely hold his own when it comes to covering the country music superstar. His performance of Chris’ hit single “Either Way” has racked up nearly half a million views on YouTube alone.
Originally from Sweden, Chris won the 13th season of Swedish Idol. And, after one listen to his angelic voice, it’s not hard at all to see why. Chris has since brought his talents across the pond to compete on this season of America’s Got Talent, where as of right now, he’s made it to the quarterfinals.
No doubt about it, he’s definitely got my vote.
