Country legend George Strait teams up with Chris Stapleton for a heartrending duet.

During the Rebuild Texas fundraising concert in San Antonio on September 13, 2018, country legend George Strait, 66,  took the opportunity to share the stage and the microphone with another country star, Chris Stapleton, 40.

The two teamed up to perform a duet of one of his Top Ten hit singles, “When Did You Stop Loving Me,” from the soundtrack for the movie “Pure Country.”

For the occasion, Stapleton wore a gorgeous Silver Eagle Resistol hat, a far cry from his usual battered vintage headgear.

In 2015 Stapleton joined Timberlake on stage to perform "Tennessee Whiskey" at the 2015 CMA Awards. It was to be the first collaboration between the two singers, but not the last. At the beginning of 2018, the two released a duet called "Say Something."

 "Say Something" was written and produced by Timberlake, Larrance Dopson, Floyd Nathaniel Hills, and Timbaland, with additional songwriting by Stapleton.

The song debuted at number 9 on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Timberlake's 19th top 10 single as a solo artist and Stapleton's first. 

In a related story, Jessica Biehl shared photographs taken on her European Summer holiday with husband Justin Timberlake and their son Silas.
