There’s a Chris Stapleton Statue Made Entirely of Bacon

By Jonathan Hailey

Some fans have an odd way of showing their favorite musicians love. When country singer Chris Stapleton arrived in St. Louis to perform at LouFest this past Saturday, he was greeted with a statue of himself made entirely of bacon. The statue was commissioned by Farmland, a beef, pork and catfish producer.

Fans were given the opportunity to take photos with the bacon statue and guess how many strips it took to create it. According to The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, it took somewhere between 200 and 2,000. Whichever fan guessed correctly would win a year’s worth of free Farmland bacon.

“We’ve had people come up and say, ‘Well, can I eat it?’,” a Farmland rep named Kristin Archambeau said. “And we say, she’s (food artist Nancy Baker) been working on it for two straight weeks, so I’d advise against it.”

Stapleton appreciated the effort, posting a photo of  himself next to the bust with the caption “I look delicious.”
