Chris Stapleton Performs “White Horse” and “Mountains of My Mind” on Saturday Night Live: Watch


Chris Stapleton was the musical guest on last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live hosted by Ryan Gosling, marking the country star’s third time playing the show. To ring in his return, Stapleton performed the Grammy-winning “White Horse” (with backing vocals by his wife, Morgane Stapleton) and “Mountains of My Mind,” both of which appear on his latest album, Higher. He also starred in a sketch parodying country revenge songs called “Get That Boy Back.” Watch his performances, plus his SNL promo video with Ryan Gosling and Sarah Sherman, below.

Higher is Stapleton’s fifth studio album. Last year, he performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl and he covered the Band’s song “The Weight” for the in memoriam segment at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. For the latter, Stapleton was joined by Elton John, Brittany Howard, and Sheryl Crow.
