At the 2022 festivities in Las Vegas, Chris Stapleton sang “Cold,” his Grammy-winning single.
To paraphrase the lyrics of a popular song: “Why you gotta be so cold/Why you gotta go and cut me with a knife, put our love on ice?”
The country singer yelled, with a string section and his longstanding band providing support in the blueish light.
Stapleton, unlike many other performers at award presentations, insisted that the entire band play live during his set.
Stapleton’s current album, Starting Over, earned this year’s Grammy for Best Country Album and features the Best Country Song winner, “Cold.”
The song was written by Stapleton and his bandmates J.T. Cure and Derek Mixon, and it features a jagged minor-key piano section that is reminiscent of Radiohead’s gloomy sound.
Benmont Tench (of The Heartbreakers) was responsible for the recording’s piano work.

In response to a question about whether he supports the cause, Chris said, “Yes, I do,” and he agreed that black lives are important.
He views the United States as a myth because of the racial injustice and police brutality he has witnessed there.
