Earlier today, we came across a stunning tribute to Prince from the Dixie Chicks and now we’re adding yet another to the list. Chris Stapleton lent his patented raspy soul to “Nothing Compares 2 U” during a Saturday night show in Berkeley, California.

Much like Stapleton’s persona, the tribute is understated, soulful and passionate as his voice growls the lyrics on a stage bathed in purple light. “Hell I’m gonna try this…I don’t know if I can actually do it…but we’re gonna do it for a great musician we lost…” Stapleton begins before launching into his cover.
