Rare is the moment when my Nashville and Kentucky worlds intersect, but this video going around Music City has a Bluegrass connection. This morning, country/folk/rock musician and Kentucky native Chris Stapleton posted this video of Bill Murray rocking out and singing along to his song “Fire Away” at his June 12 concert in South Carolina:

The always cool Murray is a cult hero these days, especially among the hipster sect (I’ve seen at least three cars with Bill Murray bumper stickers in my neighborhood lately), so seeing him geek out over music is kind of awesome. Especially when that music is made by a Kentuckian. (Chris was born in Lexington, but raised in Paintsville.)

Here’s the performance that got Murray rolling:

    Chris Stapleton is the best thing going. I’ve followed him for years since his days with the Steel Drivers, the Jompson Brothers, and now his solo stuff. I don’t blame Bill for being amazed. He is THAT GOOD.
