George Strait

George Strait built his career for maximum longevity, amassing one hit after another. He still seats on the throne as “The King of Country Music,” and he will forever be. For almost 4 decades of his active stay in the country music industry, he released nearly 100 singles that peaked high positions on the chart. In fact, only two of his hits failed to crack the top 20. He still holds the record for most number one singles.

If you notice, Straits’ performances are compared to a master class in the art of restraint. He just stands there, sings his song, and the people go crazy! His warm and gentle voice gently sways with the vibrations of tunes, as he smoothly strums his steel guitar.

Chris Stapleton

On the other hand, Chris Stapleton has already become a household name in Nashville’s songwriting community. A few might have known that this dark horse musician crafted songs for George Strait, Luke Bryan, Josh Turner, and even pop-artist Adele. Paired with his urbane songwriting and clever flair for bending modern melody with traditional sounds, he can make almost everything sound good. His voice can hit steeple-high notes in one breath and rambles like the twangy Ray Charles the next.

Stapleton’s name is burning hot on the spot with multiple awards and nominations. He holds five Grammy awards, seven CMA, seven ACM, and five Billboard Music Award among others.

Two Country Masters in One Stage

While it’s true that “you cannot serve two masters at the same time,” in rare instances, you can watch two masters of their own craft perform in one stage. During the concert for a cause Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief, Chris Stapleton joined George Strait for a duet of “When Did You Stop Loving Me.” Their number was undeniably as good as country music gets, and it can’t get any better. The crowd just can’t get enough.

“When Did You Stop Loving Me” was Strait’s third and final single from his album, Pure Country, released in April 1993.

Let’s once again watch Stapleton and Strait’s epic collaboration for “When Did You Stop Loving Me.”
