Chris & Morgan Stapleton: You Are My Sunshine
Chris Stapleton and wife, Morgane Stapleton, are a couple to be reckoned with live performances. As Morgane sings the lead vocals, she also has her husband and CMA Awarded background vocalist and guitarist behind her.
This song is from the Country compilation album ‘Southern Family’ which you can find on iTunes here. If the Stapleton’s weren’t enough, it also features artists such as Miranda Lambert, Zac Brown, and Jason Isbell.
This performance also takes place on the stage of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. It is also very similar to the original recording of the song, which you can find here.
If you enjoy the Stapleton’s, another similar artist also featured to check out would be Brandy Clark. She sings ‘I Cried‘ which is also reminiscent of a stripped down live performance.
The infamous song ‘You are my Sunshine’ has a long history of being rerecorded since pre-WW2. Including those of Johnny Cash and more recently Pop, and Rock artists alike. The Stapleton’s bringing it back to it’s Country roots is really something special. Everybody tends to agree as this duo and song was also nominated for CMA Music Event of the Year.
