It's been nearly two months since the legendary, Tom Petty’s death at the age of 66. 

Over the last couple of months many tributes have been made to Petty.

One musician was fortunate to spend some time with Petty not long before his death.

Country star and vocal powerhouse Chris Stapleton recently performed with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, joining the band for three Midwest shows over the summer.

Sadly Petty died just weeks after the performance so Stapleton wouldn't get to perform alongside them again but he remembers Petty's last words to him.


I got to spend a few minutes with Tom, talking, and the last thing he said to me was, ‘I hope we get to do more of this,’” says Stapleton. “I left there thinking that we would get to do more of it, and I’m so heartbroken and sad that he’s no longer with us.”

“I would not trade anything for those shows, and that brief moment I got to speak with Tom. It was a highlight of the year for me.”
