Chris Stapleton, whose critically acclaimed “Traveller” launched earlier this year, will be taking the stage on NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”

Stapleton will perform on the August 18 edition of the show. While NBC only confirms the performance itself, a press release from his team specifically says he will be performing “Might As Well Get Stoned.”

Zac Efron and Joe Piscopo are also scheduled for that episode.

Stapleton will not be the week’s only musical guest. NBC lists Brooklyn duo MS MR for the August 19 episode.
