This marked the first time King George had played at Arrowhead since 2001.
Now I’ll go ahead and say it, if you’re a country music fan, and a concert with these two performing is not on your bucket list, then you might need to rethink your idea of country music, because these fans at Arrowhead were in the presence of country music royalty.
With that being said, at some point in the concert, the duo put together an astounding country-fied rendition of “You Wreck Me,” by the late great rock star Tom Petty himself off his second studio album, Wildflowers.
Of course, Petty was heavily influenced by folk, country, and rock & roll while he grew up in Florida, so it’s only fitting for a couple of country legends to come together and pay tribute to him in legendary fashion.
Gotta love it:
They also performed the Strait classic, “All My Ex’s Live In Texas”:
Chris Stapleton Performs With George Strait For The First Time
For a country music singer, even one as incredible as Chris Stapleton is, singing with George Strait is about as good as it gets.
And for a country music fans, Chris Stapleton singing with George Strait is also about as good as it gets.
Back in 2017, Chris and George and a ton of other superstars got together to raise money for Hurricane Harvey victims at a benefit concert called Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief.
The special raised $44 million dollars and featured performances from Stevie Wonder, Blake Shelton, Dave Matthews, and more.
Chris Stapleton joined George Strait for a duet of Strait’s 1993 hit “When Did You Stop Loving Me” and hot DAMN if that isn’t a lethal combo.
And even for Chris, it was enough to give him goosebumps:
“If you don’t think growing up listening to George Strait and then getting up here and singing with him is the coolest thing that you’ll ever do, let me tell you that it is.
It made the hairs on my arm stand up.”
Country music at its best.
And speaking of George and Chris, how about a little “Love’s Gonna Make It Alright,” written by none other than Chris himself.
