Mountain-man country star Chris Stapleton was the musical guest on last night’s Adam Driver-hosted episode of Saturday Night Live, where he performed “Parachute” and “Nobody To Blame” off of his impressive debut Traveller, one of the best albums of 2015. The episode also featured a tribute to the late David Bowie, with former cast member Fred Armisen appearing to introduce footage of Bowie’s 1979 SNL performance of “The Man Who Sold The World,” remembering the “life-changing experience” of staying up late to watch it live. “David Bowie transformed whatever space he was in, whatever medium he was using, and that night for me, he transformed live television,” Armisen said. Watch Stapleton’s performance, Armisen’s tribute, and Bowie’s 1979 performances of “The Man Who Sold The World,” “Boys Keep Swinging,” and “TVC-15″ below.
