What would you do if your favorite country star handmade you a mixtape of their album after they heard you were a big fan? Guess what? Your response probably isn’t much different than Hollywood’s Chris Pratt, who received just such a thing from country star Chris Stapleton.


The “Guardians of the Galaxy” star couldn’t control his joy upon receiving a tape copy of the country singer’s newest album release “From a Room: Volume 1.” In a video on his Instagram page, the actor shares his surprise and joy, saying:

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a giant country music fan and happen to be a big fan of Chris Stapleton. I think I mentioned that a couple of times in interviews and he possibly caught wind of that. I’ve actually never met him in person, but guess what? He just sent me my own, personalized Chris Stapleton mix tape. Oooooh, snap!

Pratt was so overwhelmed that he momentarily lost his train of thought, but then thanked Stapleton, calling him “Mr. Stapleton.”

In addition to the tape copy of “From a Room,” Stapleton included an old school Sony Walkman so Pratt could truly enjoy the album.

Coincidentally, “From a Room: Volume 1” and “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” came out on the same date — May 5.
