This Chris Stapleton mega fan just got the best gift ever! Outspoken country music and Stapleton superfan, action star Chris Pratt got the surprise of his life when the country singer sent him a gift to show his appreciation for all the love the actor has been sending his way.
In celebration of the release of his second solo album, From a Room Vol. 1, and the release of Pratt’s latest film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Stapleton sent the actor a customized cassette tape of the critically acclaimed country album.
“Chris Stapleton sent me my very own customized TAPE of his new album!!!” Pratt captioned to a video shared to his Instagram. “From a Room Vol. 1′ Totally unsolicited. Never met him. He musta heard what a big fan I am. If you haven’t heard his music do so if you please. And go see ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ 2 theaters!”
The cassette tape references an on-going trend in the film where the main character listens to a mixtape from his late mother he’s carried with him all his life. Promoting his film, the actor has often praised Stapleton’s music saying that if he were to choose what’s on the mixtape, the country singer would definitely be at the top of the list.
