Over the weekend, the music industry was saddened by the death of AC/DC founding member and guitarist Malcolm Young. During Chris Stapleton‘s Nov. 18th tour stop, he paid tribute to Young by putting his own spin one of the rock band’s most beloved songs.
Stapleton brought out opening act and good friend Brent Cobb to join him for a rendition of “You Shook Me All Night Long.”
But this was no simple cover. The duo made the song nearly unrecognizable, trading out the heavy percussion and guitar riffs for a more swampy and groove-driven take. It was a fabulous mashup of both Cobb and Stapleton’s signature sounds and a great tribute to the late rock star. You can see the full cover from Chris Stapleton and Brent Cobb in the video above.
It’s going to be a busy rest of 2017 for Chris Stapleton. He’s currently out on the road ahead of the release of his new album From a Room: Volume 2, due out on Dec. 1. The country star and his wife Morgane are also gearing up another huge milestone. They are expecting the arrival of a set of twins, in the coming weeks.
