John Mayer and Chris Stapleton debut day-old song onstage in Nashville

Country music superstar Chris Stapleton joined John Mayer onstage in Tennessee on Thursday night (08Aug19) to perform a track the odd couple wrote the night before.
Stapleton was Mayer’s surprise guest on the Nashville stop of his Evening With John Mayer Tour, and joined the Daughters singer for a brand new duet.
Introducing I Just Remembered That I Didn’t Care, Mayer said, “I’d like to invite a friend to the stage. I texted this friend and said, ‘Hey, I’d love to have you sit in’. I said, ‘Do you want to do one of your songs or one of my songs?’ And he said, ‘We can do either, or we can just write a song and then go play it…’
“I said, ‘Challenge accepted’. I got to town yesterday, we met up in the studio, we wrote this song yesterday, and we’re going to play it for you.”
Stapleton hung around for one more song – a rendition of Mayer’s Slow Dancing in a Burning Room.
