Watch Chris & Morgane Stapleton Deliver A Flawless Acoustic Cover Of Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance”

Chris Stapleton country music

Is there anything this duo can’t sing?

Of course, Chris Stapleton is the name on the front of all the albums, but his wife Morgane provides such an incredible compliment to his powerful voice. The pair have delivered a number of award-winning songs and albums, countless tour dates over the past decade or so, but this might be one of my performances they’ve ever given.

As part of a St. Jude Radiothon on the Bobby Bones Show, Chris and Morgane stopped by the studio to perform a stripped down version of the Lee Ann Womack hit, “I Hope You Dance.”

Written by Mark D. Sanders and Tia Sillers, “I Hope You Dance,” was recorded by Lee Ann Womack featuring Sons of the Desert for her 2000 album of the same name. The song topped both the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks and Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks charts, and also reached number fourteen on the Billboard Hot 100.

It won the 2001 CMA Award for Single of the Year, as well as the ACM award for Song of the Year. It also won a Grammy for Best Country Song and was nominated for the all-genre Grammy Song of the Year.

And here, we get to really see Morgane shine on the accompanying vocals, even taking the rare lead in the bridge of the song.

Chris Stapleton’s ‘All-American Road Show’ Tour

Stapleton is the king of consistency; what you hear on the records is precisely what you will hear on stage. He knows that people are there to listen to his profound songwriting, and he puts on a show with little bells and whistles (compared to large-scale theatrical productions).

Backed with some of the best musicians in the industry, each show somehow gets better and better.

In October, Stapleton announced he was continuing the tour through 2024, bringing along Turnpike Troubadours, Sheryl Crow, Elle King, Marcus King, Nikki Lane, Willie Nelson and Family, Grace Potter, Allen Stone, Marty Stuart, and more.

With the recent release of his fifth studio album, Higher, I can bet good money that there will be a lot of those tracks on the upcoming setlists. Although Stapleton claimed that “Higher” is “him on a good day,” since it’s been in the vault for over 20 years, I’d pay good money to see that one on the backlit stage.

The All-American Road Show is not one to miss.
