Chris Stapleton has a reputation for being a stand-up guy, but he kinda flies under the radar when it comes to his personal life. Or so he thought! Chris Stapleton’s latest dose of awesome was for one of the biggest stars in the Galaxy…Chris Pratt.
…For you non-nerds out there, actor Chris Pratt has been doing interviews lately promoting his movie, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and during the interviews, he’s mentioned a couple of times not only what a huge country fan he is, but that he’s a big fan of Chris Stapleton in particular. The two Chris’ have never met, but Stapleton sent Pratt the most thoughtful gift over the weekend: a mixtape of his new album, From A Room: Volume 1.
The cassette is a major fanboy moment, because not only is Chris Pratt a huge Chris Stapleton fan in real life…Chris Pratt’s movie character keeps a beloved mixtape made by his late mother, filled with pop songs she loved, and he even carries a Walkman with him to listen to it. Stapleton went a step further and even sent Pratt a Walkman to listen to the album with.
Chris Pratt could NOT keep this secret gift under wraps. He posted a video on Instagram thanking Stapleton and said that the gift is just one of the many wonderful blessings that have come his way.
Love that Chris Pratt is a huge country music fan! In the past, he’s talked about Eric Church’s music getting him pumped while working on Jurassic Park. And he’s also told the embarrassing story about when he met Tim McGraw and happened to be wearing McGraw’s signature cologne. In love! ❤
