Chris Pratt’s Awkward Tim McGraw Run-In
Guardians of the Galaxy’s Chris Pratt is a big country music fan. The mega-star revealed that on Seth Meyers when he mentioned running into Tim McGraw for the first time at an awards show.
“I’m looking at Tim McGraw, and as we’re filing out, I’m getting closer and closer, and I’m thinking, ‘This is my chance to talk to Tim McGraw.’ And he catches me staring at him a few times.”
“And I say — he performed a song that night — I say, ‘Tim, that was a great song tonight.’ And he was like, ‘Thank you,’ but in the ‘I’m going to avoid you, you might be a weirdo.’ And I said, ‘I’m just a huge fan of both you and [Faith Hill].’ He’s like, ‘Thank you, thank you.’ “Then I said, I’m wearing your cologne…”
This led to a few other stars reaching out to Pratt.
Chris Pratt, Big Fan Of Chris Stapleton
Chris Pratt took to Instagram and mentioned a few of his favorite singers, including rising star Chris Stapleton. “Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a giant country music fan, and happen to be a big fan of Chris Stapleton…”
“Guess what. He just sent me my own personalized Chris Stapleton mix tape. Oh snap. That is just one of the many wonderful blessings that have come my way, man,” Pratt said, starting to cry.

“After composing himself, Pratt adds that Stapleton even included something to play the cassette on. “He even sent this Sony Walkman so I can listen to it. So that’s what I’m gonna do,” he says as he starts singing along to Stapleton’s “Up to No Good Livin’.” Which is exactly what Pratt’s Peter Quill character does with his vintage Walkman model TPS-L2 in the movie.”
