You’re just not going to believe what Chris Stapleton and his wife Morgane do with the old country standard “You Are My Sunshine.”
You probably think of the song as a lullaby you might sing to your kids, but the married couple’s version of the song is nothing short of a barn burner.
This video clip captures the Stapletons performing the song during Chris’s show in Los Angeles last November. It was just a few days after he tore down the CMA Awards with Justin Timberlake and catapulted onto the national stage. Of course, Morgane was by Chris’s side for that performance as she is every time he steps on stage.
This version of “You Are My Sunshine” has us craving a full-on duets album from Chris and Morgane.
In the meantime, you can look forward to the couple’s studio version of the song coming out on the new multi-artist compilation album, “Southern Family,” due out March 18. Miranda Lambert, Zac Brown, Jamey Johnson and Miranda’s new love, Anderson East, are among the others contributing new, original songs to the project.
