Musicians, public figures, celebrities alike are all usually pretty active on social media, so to keep up with a universe of stars on Twitter and Instagram is a tall order and partly to blame for us initially missing this Chris Pratt (Guardians Of The Galaxy, Passengers) Instagram video post from January 24, 2018—now, with almost 2.5 million plays. The post, both footage of his home ranch and a personal outpouring of emotions ranging from longing to thankfulness, is centered by a familiar favorite soundtrack from recent GRAMMY Award-winning singer-songwriter Zach Williams. With “Chain Breaker” ringing throughout, Pratt writes, “I’m sharing this video as a way to express my gratitude for all the blessings in my life and to entice any of you watching this who may feel unease or anxiety with the state of our world to just breathe, slow down, go outside…” Acknowledging Williams further in the written portion of the post he adds, “The song is ‘Chain Breaker’ by Zach Williams. I didn’t get his permission to use it. Hope that’s alright. Big fan, Zach. Please don’t sue me for all my sheep.”
Livin’ that #farmlife 🙏♥👍🏼 Missing home, missing the farm, missing the boy, missing the island. So I’m sharing this video as a way to express my gratitude for all the blessings in my life and to entice any of you watching this who may feel unease or anxiety with the state of our world to just breathe, slow down, go outside, find something not man made and give it a good look. A leaf. A bug. A cloud. A sheep. As William Cullen Bryant says, “Seek communion with her visible form….go forth under the open sky and list to nature’s teachings.” What a beautiful creation over which we’ve been given the responsibility of stewardship. The song is “Chain Breaker” by Zach Williams. I didn’t get his permission to use it. Hope that’s alright. 😬🤷♂️🙏♥ Big fan Zach. Please don’t sue me for all my sheep. Thanks to my farm team for all you do.
Proving that Pratt really is as much of a fan as he claimed, he recently attended a Los Angeles Roadshow tour stop to see Zach Williams perform. Also proving that Williams wasn’t upset with Pratt, the two buddied-up to pose for the picture you see above. We haven’t confirmed, however, if Williams later boarded his tour bus that night with any of Pratt’s furry farm animals in tow.
