Chris Stapleton didn’t realize initially that Justin Timberlake wanted him to have a vocal feature on Man of the Woods.

When Justin invited Chris out to Los Angeles to write songs, Chris thought he was just helping with some songwriting. He told Billboard of his feature on “Say Something”:

“I really just went out to Los Angeles to write songs with him. It’s a very fluid process with him, there’s a lot going on. That was one of those things where there wasn’t necessarily a plan. He was like ‘All right, you hop in there and take a verse,’ and I’m like, ‘You want me to do what?’ … It came out great. I had a blast with him, he’s a great creative force and one of those guys that if you get a chance to work with him, you should.”

Another thing that many people may not know is that Chris is featured on “Filthy,” as well:

“I play guitar on the very first sound you hear on ‘Filthy.’ That’s me playing with a delay pedal on a jazz master. We were around makin’ music [for Man Of The Woods], and it was a great time.”
