Chris Stapleton Got A “Wonderfully Strange” Call From Elton John

Chris Stapleton covers the song “I Want Love” on the upcoming Elton John tribute album “Restoration,” which drops Friday, and it turns out he didn’t exactly get to pick the song he wanted to cover.

Chris tells Amazon Music for an upcoming special “The Soundboard with Elton John,” that Elton called him personally to ask him to record “I Want Love,” calling it “one of the strangest phone calls you’re gonna get,” adding, “Not strange, wonderfully strange.”

“In the last few years of surreal moments, that was a surreal one for sure,” Chris says. “He wanted us to do this particular song… what are you going to say if Elton John calls you up and asks you do to something like other than ‘Yes, absolutely,’ and ‘I’ll do my best, Sir Elton.”
