LAWD have mercy.

This is the duet I’ve always needed in my life.

During a recent stop on their summer stadium tour trek at American Family Field in Milwaukee, Wisconson, King George and Chris Stapleton teamed up for a kickass rendition of George Strait’s single “Love’s Gonna Make It Alright.”

Of course, it was intentionally written for The King by Chris Stapleton along with Al Anderson, and included as the second single from George’s 2011 Here for a Good Time album.

Chris has noted before that he was writing a song specifically to pitch to George:

“Sat down to write this song, this is another one where this kinda worked… George was cuttin’ and my friend Al Anderson who used to be in a band called NRBQ, back in the ’80s… he goes ‘Hey man, George cuttin’ and we need to write something for George.’

That never works out when you do that… but he said ‘we need to write a song for George’ and we did and it turned out to be this one.”

It peaked at #3 on the Billboard U.S. Hot Country Songs chart, and for me, these two are a country music fans dream team, so I always love getting to hear them sing together.

You can watch the full performance in the video below, which is a tad bit grainy, but the sound quality is great and well-worth the three minutes out of your day to watch:

It’s certainly not the first time Strait and Stapleton have been on stage together, as they also performed George’s iconic hit “All My Ex’s Live in Texas,” Waylon Jennings’ “Waymore’s Blues” and Tom Petty’s “You Wreck Me” in the past, too.

George will continue his headlining shows at several more stadiums across the country with Chris Stapleton opening, as well as Little Big Town.
