What you see is what you get with Chris Stapleton. The look, the sound, and the attitude make up everything that is this up-and-coming country music superstar.
But then you run across a pic of him back in the day, and all of a sudden, you notice a whole new side of the long-haired talent.
Uploaded to his Instagram feed back in 2013, the incredible picture shows Stapleton sporting a cropped do and wearing some amazing country western attire.
And he still looks as cool as ever.
“One of these guys is me. #country&western,” he captioned the throwback picture.
That young guy with the cropped do and the country western attire will hit the big time on Jan. 16 when he serves as the first musical guest of 2016 on “Saturday Night Live.” He will be joined by guest host Adam Driver from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” The duo recently appeared in a promo for the episode.
