Chris Pratt is known for being an action star, but he lived his country music dreams by teaming up with singer-songwriter Chris Stapleton to perform "Tennessee Whiskey."
Pratt, the "Guardians of the Galaxy" star, appeared on stage at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, Saturday where he sang the chorus of Stapleton's popular rendition of the George Jones song "Tennessee Whiskey." The actor donned a jean jacket with Stapleton's face on it and went on to thank not only the country singer but also the artist's wife Morgane and the military members who are serving the country overseas.
Earlier this year, Stapleton brought the comedic actor to tears when he gifted him with a mixtape and walkman inspired by the "Guardians of the Galaxy" movie. Pratt, who has been vocal about being a country music fan, shared the emotional moment on Instagram.
"Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a giant country music fan, and happen to be a big fan of Chris Stapleton," Pratt said in his social media video in May. "Guess what? He just sent me my own personalized Chris Stapleton mix tape."
Pratt called the moment nothing short of a blessing.
"That is just one of the many wonderful blessings that have come my way, man," he said.
The actor previously shared his testimony with Esquire magazine about a life-changing experience where one man witnessed to him as a teenager living in Hawaii. At the time, the underage Pratt had sent a friend out to buy him alcohol.
"He was like, 'I stopped because Jesus told me to stop and talk to you. He said to tell you you're destined for great things,'" Pratt recalled. "My friends came out, and I was like, 'Hey, I'm gonna go with this guy.' I gave my soul to Jesus within, like, two days."
