Set your DVR, Chris Stapleton taking the ‘SNL’ stage for the first time since 2016 Saturday January 27th, with one of my all-time Saturday Night Live alumni hosting, Will Ferrell.
Last time Stapleton was musical guest, he did not appear in any sketches, but I am hoping this time is different!
The episode is one week before the Super Bowl and one day before the 2018 Grammys. The Super Bowl is also on NBC this year, and Justin Timberlake is the halftime show performer, and Justin and Chris Stapleton have a collaboration on Timberlake’s new album that drops February 2nd, soooo maybe just maybe, I have my fingers crossed we get a taste of that on stage at ‘SNL’. Probably less than a 1% chance but here’s to hoping!
