No one’s stock in country music has increased more in the past couple of years than Chris Stapleton’s.
The Kentucky native became the darling of the 2015 CMA Awards, winning three trophies, while putting on a show-stopping performance with Justin Timberlake during their collaborations on “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Drink You Away.”
Grammys Awards, ACM Awards and more CMA Awards have followed for Chris, as well as two albums, From A Room: Vol. 1 and Vol. 2.
Perhaps in an effort to return the favor to the man who helped shine the spotlight on him, Chris will be lending his talents to a track on Justin Timberlake’s new album, Man of the Woods, which is set to drop on Feb. 2.
The song will be the the tandem’s first official recording together.
Justin’s new album will also include collaborations with Alicia Keys, Pharrell Williams and Timbaland.
