Watch Chris Stapleton’s Unexpected ‘Tennessee Whiskey’ Duet With Chris Pratt
As if seeing Chris Stapleton isn't thrilling enough on its own, fans who attended his Saturday night (Oct. 14) show at Bridgestone Arena got an extra special surprise when Chris Pratt showed up to make "Tennessee Whiskey" a duet.
The crowd went crazy as Pratt made his way onto the stage to sing the chorus of the famous song, but not before he yelled "what's up Nashville!" and showed off his jean jacket with Stapleton's face on the back. Pratt also thanked the singer, his wife Morgane and the men and women serving overseas to protect our country.
The Jurassic World star looked right at home on stage with the Stapletons, belting out the classic country song along with the powerhouse vocalists, much to the delight of the crowd. He even swayed alongside Morgane and threw his arm around Chris in friendship.

After the show, the two apparently made a pitstop at Nashville's famous Nudie's Honky Tonk on Broadway.
Pratt's appearance came on the second night of Stapleton's two-night sold out stay at Bridgestone Arena. The actor proclaimed his admiration for the singer earlier in 2017, admitting in an interview that he listens to to Stapleton frequently and even performed his own solo rendition of "Tennessee Whiskey." In response, Stapleton surprised Pratt with the most thoughtful gift — a mixtape of songs off his most recent album, From A Room: Volume 1, in honor of his character's in Guardians of the Galaxy.
In addition to Stapleton, Pratt is also a big fan of Tim McGraw and Eric Church, telling the hilarious story of his awkward encounter with McGraw at the Oscars and how Church inspired him to get into character while filming Jurassic World.
