ChrisStapletonChris Stapleton had a dream come true happen for him on Saturday night in Nashville’s Nissan Stadium. Stapleton opened up for iconic rock band Guns N’ Roses on their Nashville tour stop.  Stapleton performed his own set when opening for their “Not In This Lifetime Tour.”

The country sensation told Rolling Stone Country what it was like to meet GNR’s lead singer Axl Rose before the night was over:

“Axl’s assistant contacted Dave and wanted us to both come back there, and we brought our wives back and said hey. It was cool,” Stapleton tells Rolling Stone Country. “He was great. Very polite and gracious and we got to say hi for a few minutes. I’m sure he was tired and had to go get cleaned up before the buses or planes rolled out, but he was a gentleman and we had a brief conversation about music and both went on our way. It was a good night.”
