Watch Chris Stapleton Perform ‘Nobody to Blame’ on ‘Late Show’

Stephen Colbert has been keeping it country on the newly revamped Late Show. His first batch of musical guests has included a handful of country artists, including Toby Keith, Willie Nelson, and Chris Stapleton, who stopped by the show yesterday. Stapleton performed “Nobody to Blame”, a gritty country song that feels and sounds like a late ’70s George Jones track. It’s featured on Stapleton’s acclaimed debut album, Traveller, which earned him three big CMA Award nominations: Album of the Year, Best New Artist of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year. For a ceremony that usually awards artists with a more pop appeal, it’s refreshing to see an authentic country artist like Stapleton rise to the top.
