Chris Stapleton and his wife Morgane covered “Amanda” for a Don Williams tribute album.

When Chris Stapleton puts his voice to something it is bound to sound amazing. Put his wife Morgane into the mix and make it a Don Williams song…and what you have is pure magic!

Recently, the “Tennessee Whiskey” singer and his wife were a part of a tribute to the great songwriter Don Williams, titled Gentle Giants: The Songs of Don Williams. The project was put together in celebration of Williams’ 78th birthday.

Stapleton chose to cover the iconic song “Amanda”, which was made famous by Waylon Jennings in 1974. Stapleton chose to honor the song as a duo with his wife Morgane, which gave the song so much more depth by giving the heroine in the song a “voice”.

The tribute project will have 11-tracks, including the smash Williams hits “Some Broken Hearts Never Mend,” “Tulsa Time” and “I Believe in You”. Williams decided to retire from his music career in May of 2016.

“It’s time to hang my hat up and enjoy some quiet time at home,” Williams said. “I’m so thankful for my fans, my friends and my family for their everlasting love and support.”

You will hear Stapleton on the album along with Dierks Bentley, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Brandy Clark, Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires, and a few more.
