‘Amanda’ Cover by Chris Stapleton is One for the Books

By  | 

Chris Stapleton is no stranger to the country music scene, making his breakout debut in 2015 and earning fans in the genre that have been craving original country talent for some time now. Not to be pigeon-holed, Stapleton’s talent is valued for its emotional intensity, genuine feeling, and sensational sound.

It comes as no surprise that Stapleton’s wife, Morgane, is also an amazingly talented singer, and two have performed duets that have brought rave reviews, and quiet crowds to appreciative tears. One such duet was performed at the Grand Ole Opry, in which the couple gave their rendition of “Amanda”, a song which was written by Bob McDill and made popular in the 70s by both Don Williams and Waylon Jennings. Watch here as their performance brings the audience to an appreciative roar after their version.

Stapleton has been a songwriting mainstay in the industry for years, writing for stars such as Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan, and Josh Turner (ladies…remember the song ‘Just to be Your Man’? Yep, we thought you did.) During the 2015 CMA’s, Stapleton won Male Vocalist of the Year, New Artist of the Year, and Album of the Year and performed a duet with Justin Timberlake that left people searching YouTube for weeks to come for another upload!
