The Force Is With Chris Stapleton

CMA Winner Shows His Sense of Humor

You have to appreciate Chris Stapleton’s sense of humor.

To celebrate the arrival of the long-awaited Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the CMA winner decided to have a little fun with the Rolling Stone magazine’s new cover featuring Harrison Ford, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, BB-8 and, of course, Chewbacca.

In a photo posted on his Instagram account, Stapleton appears to have photoshopped his trademark hat onto the hairy head of Chewie.

“Made the cover of Rolling Stone … again,” he quips, with the hashtags “Star Wars” and “The Force Awakens.”

Admit it: This is the greatest thing you’ve seen all week.

And although he cracks quite a funny one with the Chewie bit, Chris Stapleton is actually on the cover of the magazine, as well, for a feature titled “The Rise of Chris Stapleton.”

May the force be with us.
