Chris Stapleton may have stolen the show while attending a performance of the “Madea’s Farewell” play tour. 

As TMZ reports, Stapleton attended the Tyler Perry stage play in Nashville, Tennesse, on Friday, but not without putting on a performance of his own. After a fellow crowd member pointed him out, the country star took a mic and sang his hit song “Tennessee Whiskey” as the crowd went wild.

Perry shared a video of the performance on his Instagram.

Perry’s social media followers were just as excited.

“So much love in that space,”  television host Scott Evans wrote. “Come on Nashville!!”

Another user wrote: “Love Tyler Perry and Chris Stapleton!! Win win!! And a play!! Triple win!”

While another fan, was overjoyed they were able to see it all in person.

She commented: “This was everything to witness and The SHOW WAS HILARIOUS but full of WISDOM! Job well done! My family truly enjoyed ourselves.”

Stapleton is not the only performer to grab a bit of the spotlight during a play performance. Perry also shared on Instagram that during another stop, this one in Charlotte, North Carolina, R&B singer Fantasia was the one who got to belt out a tune.
