Chris Stapleton stuns young fan with Tennessee Whiskey performance

Country star Chris Stapleton thrilled a young fan at a show in Phoenix, Arizona on Friday (19May17) when he invited him up onstage to sing Tennessee Whiskey.
Mohawked eight-year-old Vedder Gabriel met the singer and his wife Morgane backstage before their show at the Ak-Chin and made it clear he’d love to sing with the couple.
His dreams came true a little later as Stapleton beckoned him onstage to help sing the song’s chorus.
The gig brought a smile back to Gabriel’s face after the passing of another music idol.
“Vedder had a tough week with the passing of one of his favorite artists Chris Cornell. It was destiny that KMLE Country 107.9 upgraded our seats to Pit Passes and the rest is history,” his mum writes in a Facebook post, along with a video of her boy singing with his hero. “Our son has been singing since before he could talk and his whole world is music. Thanks to Chris Stapleton and his beautiful wife Morgane Stapleton for creating such an amazing moment for Vedder.”
