Joe Rogan & Chris Stapleton Talking About Garth Brooks and Chris Gaines Is…FUN

There was finally some Garth news today about that FUN album – yeah, the one fans pre-ordered well over two years ago will be available on November 20.

Something about the cover art of FUN, with Garth’s face extra close up and airbrushed, made me take a detour while on the computer and I ended up on YouTube. The next thing I knew I was watching Chris Gaines videos.

You know how that goes.

That brought me to this clip from Chris Stapleton’s appearance on Joe Rogan’s podcast in 2017 where the two discuss Garth’s Chris Gaines alter ego.

It’s a very entertaining 4 minutes and 30 seconds, I gotta say.

Here it is.

Joe has become a huge fan of real deal country music over the years. By now you know he’s good friends with Sturgill Simpson and has had him on the podcast multiple times. Other guests include Shooter Jennings, Stapleton (obviously) and even Wheeler Walker Jr.

He’s praised Tyler Childers a bunch and the same goes for Jason Isbell and Colter Wall.

It’s a great thing for country music when a person with this kind of reach promotes some of the best artists on the planet.

Here’s the full episode with Chris if you missed it.

Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
