We already knew that Chris Stapleton is an insanely talented singer, but with his cover of an Eric Clapton song, he proves that he's a pretty skilled guitarist as well.  

Clapton is considered to be one of the greatest guitarists in music history, with Rolling Stone ranking him in second place on its list called The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time

As to be expected, Clapton has a wealth of hit songs to his name, and is the only person to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame three times: once as a solo artist, and once each for being a member of The Yardbirds and Cream.

One of Clapton's biggest hits was his 1996 song "Change The World." The song was written by Tommy Sims, Gordon Kennedy, and Wayne Kirkpatrick, and Clapton recorded it for the soundtrack to the film, Phenomenon

The song reached the top of the Billboard Adult Contemporary and Adult Top 40 charts in the U.S. after its release, and also topped the charts in Canada. In total, Clapton also took home three Grammy Awards for the song in 1997.

For his cover, Stapleton stays true to how Clapton performed it, only using an acoustic guitar. His classic country voice gives the song a brand new sound that is completely unique from the original.

The performance also proves just how skilled Stapleton is as a guitarist, since he doesn't seem to have any trouble jamming out to Clapton's hit song.

Stapleton really gets into his performance, and is unable to stop himself from bouncing up and down as he sings. His excitement for the song makes it a fun performance to watch, so you'll have to see for yourself in the video below!

LYRICS BELOW

If I could reach the stars
Pull one down for you,
Shine it on my heart
So you could see the truth:

That this love inside
Is everything it seems.
But for now I find
It's only in my dreams.

And I can change the world,
I will be the sunlight in your universe.
You would think my love was really something good,
Baby if I could change the world.

If I could be king,
Even for a day,
I'd take you as my queen;
I'd have it no other way.

And our love would rule
This kingdom we had made.
'til then I'd be a fool,
Wishing for the day...

That I can change the world,
I would be the sunlight in your universe.
You would think my love was really something good,
Baby if I could change the world.
Baby if I could change the world.

I could change the world,
I would be the sunlight in your universe.
You would think my love was really something good,
Baby if I could change the world.
Baby if I could change the world.
Baby if I could change the world.
