Chris Stapleton Once Played Football with Dan Marino in a Hotel Bar


Country music breakout star Chris Stapleton and NFL Hall of Fame Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino don’t immediately seem like they have that much in common — Chris is a bluesy country music singer from Kentucky and Dan is football player from Pennsylvania.

But once upon a time, the two hung out at a hotel bar in Philadelphia swapping stories, hanging out with Chris’ band and playing football — yes, they played football in the hotel bar.

Recently, Chris took some time on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to share the story of that night and he was sure to include the fact that he caught three out of three of Marino’s passes. Impressive.
