It’s already been established that Chris Stapleton can sing anything, right?

So, when you see Stapleton singing the Josh Turner hit “Your Man,” a song that Chris wrote alongside Chris DuBois and Jace Everett, you already know it’s gonna be good.

Of course, Chris was a pretty well-known songwriter and wrote and co-wrote so many hits before venturing out on his own as a singer, including another Josh Turner hit, “Another Try,” which was recorded as a duet alongside Trisha Yearwood.

He has also written songs for Tim McGraw, Darius Rucker, Thomas Rhett, Kenny Chesney… the list goes on and on.

But after a short and sweet introduction from the Bing Lounge back in 2013, Stapleton readies his guitar, and just kills it. Now, one the first things that I noticed about this cover is that since it is completely acoustic, just Stapleton and his guitar, the song feels more upbeat and peppy, rather than the sensual groove that has made so many people swoon.

Keep in mind, this was 2 years before Traveller came out.

Also, while Turner’s voice is smooth like butter, Stapleton’s voice has this grit and gruffness that really shines on this song. And each time he gets to the chorus, that grit is upped and upped until the growl that comes from Stapleton makes everyone in the video stop what they’re doing and look up.

And believe it or not, “Your Man” was Chris’ first career #1 single:

“This next song I wrote on Valentine’s Day, I was working on Valentine’s Day so I figured I’d write something nice and sweet.

It wound up bein’ my first #1 song… it bought me a house.”

Revisiting “Your Man”

Josh and his wife recreated the music video in celebration of the 15-year anniversary, but Josh also sat down with Chris Stapleton to discuss how the song came together, what it has meant for their careers, and the impact it has made.

“Your Man” would go on to become Chris’ first number one single, as well as Josh’s first number one.

And the rest is history…
