Sitting down to sing a song for a good cause, the gravelly-voiced hitmaker known for his refreshed take on George Jones’ “Tennessee Whiskey” lent his talents to a 2000-era hit from Lee Ann Womack.

In 2020, Chris Stapleton and his wife Morgane joined in on Bobby Bones’ annual St. Jude Radiothon and many other country artists to help raise money and awareness for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

Singing Womack’s 2001 chart-topper, “I Hope You Dance,” Stapleton and Morgane issued a soulful version with a slower tempo.

Reminiscent of his other ballads, the singer wove a story using each note and poured as much emotion into the softer notes as he did the apex of the chorus. Stapleton has the unique ability to make any song he is singing, whether he wrote it or not, sound like he has lived through that experience.

About halfway through the song, Morgane added some notes and took the performance to the next level. It is truly a must-see video that any country fan will be delighted with.

Stapleton often pays tribute to the incredible and legendary artists before him.

Over many years of performing, Stapleton not only performs his songs but also covers songs by artists he considers inspirations to him. In the last few years, he has performed Willie Nelson’s “Always On My Mind” – and has even duetted with Nelson at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame!
