Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake make not be finished collaborating just yet.
The power force in music already sing together on Justin’s latest single “Say Something,” but Chris revealed backstage at the recent CMA Music Festival they could be dueting again soon.
“We were talking about something earlier today,” he told reporters. “We just have fun. It looks like the odd couple to most people, but we have a lot of the same musical influences: old R&B and soul music and things like that. We just enjoy hanging out.”
The pair first joined forces at the 2015 CMA Awards, performing a show-stopping mashup of Justin’s single “Drink You Away” and Chris’s popular smash “Tennessee Whiskey.”
“There will probably always be music being made, whether it’s writing or talking about music or playing music for each other,” Chris adds. “We’re both at a phase in our life where we want to have fun playing music. That’s why it makes sense.”
Chris’ latest album From A Room: Volume 2 is available now, while Justin is currently on the road on his Man of the Woods Tour.
