"This guy, Phil, and a couple of his friends came into Rudy’s Tavern last night… and well, he did this… awesome!" McCracken wrote in his post.
Apparently, he was so amazed by Phil’s singing ability that he deemed it fit to share his talent with the world.
Since the footage was uploaded online, it has been viewed over 220,000 times and amassed more than 1,900 reactions and 2,200 shares.
A lot of people have also taken the time to praise his talent in the comments section. One Facebook user wrote, "Sounds good just think what he would sound like if he was actually trying."
The song, “Tennessee Whiskey," was written by Dean Dillon and Linda Hargrove. Country music artist David Allan Coe originally recorded it.
The hit tune has been covered by several artists, including Stapleton, who has garnered credits writing and co-writing over 170 songs at the time of publishing.
The 40-year-old singer performed his version of the song with Justin Timberlake at the Country Music Association Awards in 2015.
Meanwhile, just like Phil, a bartender from Las Vegas named Amanda Avila has also gone viral after a video of her singing “Crazy” by Patsy Cline was shared on Facebook.
One of the bar-goers, named Ash Pugh, was enchanted by Avila's powerful singing voice, so she decided to film her.
"Why is she my bartender and not singing on the big stage?" Pugh wrote. The video quickly went viral with more than 44,000 views since it was uploaded on Facebook.
