Here’s the video of Chris Stapleton on Saturday Night Live. See the full live performance of ‘Midnight Train To Memphis’ and ‘Hard Livin” by the multi-Grammy-winning country music superstar on season 43 episode 12 with host with Will Ferrell. Fellow country-music star Sturgill Simpson made a cameo appearance for both performances. The replay and more details are below.
Chris Stapleton performed in support of his critically acclaimed third studio album, From A Room: Volume 2‘ which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart upon its release in December via Mercury Nashville.
It’s the follow-up to his sophomore studio album, ‘From A Room: Volume 1,’ which also received critical acclaim and has received a 2018 Grammy Award nomination for Best Country Album and went on to become the best selling country music album of 2017.
Stapleton was a longtime veteran hitmaker songwriter in Nashville — including George Strait (‘Love’s Gonna Make It Alright’), Kenny Chesney (‘Never Wanted Nothing More’) – prior to his breakthrough as a solo artist with his 2015 major-label debut album, ‘Traveller‘ which received four Grammy Award nominations including Album of the Year.
He made his debut as the musical guest on SNL two years ago, in January 2016, performing songs from his debut album. Tonight’s appearance marked his second on the show.
This time around, he was joined by Grammy Award winning country-music and roots singer-songwriter, Sturgill Simpson. Stapleton dropped hints about the cameo via Instagram and Twitter just hours before the live show. Simpson’s most recent album is A Sailor’s Guide to Earth which was released to critical acclaim in 2016 and debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, and No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart.
