Chris Stapleton performed “Midnight Train To Memphis” on this week’s “SNL.” The song is off his latest album From A Room: Volume 2. Watch the video below of Stapleton performance of “Midnight Train To Memphis” on “Saturday Night Live.”

This marks the second time Stapleton has been the musical guest on the sketch comedy show. He made his debut two years ago in January 2016. During that appearance, he sang “Nobody To Blame” and “Parachute,” both of which were featured on his best-selling first album Traveller.

Stapleton was joined on stage by Sturgill Simpson, who made his “SNL” debut almost exactly a year ago. When Simpson was on the comedy program he first sang his hit, “Keep It Between The Lines,” followed by “Call To Arms.” Perhaps like Simpson, who took home a Grammy for “A Sailor’s Guide To Earth,” Stapleton’s appearance right before the awards show will also result in a win for Best Country Album.

Last year, Stapleton released two albums. The first was From A Room: Volume 1, which came out in May 2017. It went on to become the best-selling country album of 2017. And right before the year ended, he dropped From A Room: Volume 2 in December.

In addition to having two albums come out, Stapleton continued to be recognized for his talent with a slew of awards in 2017. He won Country Music Album of the Year at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, as well as the Top Country Album at the Billboard Music Awards. He similarly won big at the CMA Awards, having walked away with the top honors, including Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year.

Already 2018 is shaping up as a big year for Stapleton. He’s hosting “Saturday Night Live” and on Sunday he’s performing at the 60th Grammy Awards at Madison Square Garden in New York. Stapleton is also up for three awards. The singer-songwriter is nominated for Best Country Song for “Broken Halos,” Best Solo Performance for “Either Way,” and Best Country Album for From A Room: Volume 1. Check out the video below of Stapleton’s performance of “Hard Livin'” on “Saturday Night Live.”
