The gift that Chris Stapleton sent Chris Pratt is everything he could ever want

posted by Ashley King - 

Guardians of the Galaxy actor Chris Pratt is a huge country fan, particularly of Chris Stapleton. Although the two Chrises have yet to meet, Stapleton caught wind of his admiration and decided to send his actor fan a pretty awesome gift -- a mixtape of his new album, From A Room: Volume 1. 

The cassette has a special meaning, as Pratt's character in Guardians of the Galaxy always has a Walkman on his hip to listen to a beloved mixtape made by his late mother. Of course, Stapleton also sent a backup Walkman, just in case Pratt didn't have one on hand. 

#chrisstapleton sent me my very own customized TAPE of his new album!!! #fromaroomvolume1 Totally unsolicited. Never met him. He musta heard what a big fan I am. If you haven't heard his music do so if you please. And go see #guardiansofthegalaxy 2 in theatres!

The first Sony Walkman went on sale on July 1st, 1979. It retailed for $150, which would equate to about $535 today!
