If you’re anything like me, your social media feed blew up Wednesday night with people’s first discovery of Chris Stapleton. It was because of this amazing performance that stole the show at the CMAs featuring Justin Timberlake (who apparently can do ANYTHING and look hot doing it.)
Here’s what you need to know about Chris Stapleton. He’s not new to the scene. He’s been around for years writing for the likes of Kenny Chesney, George Strait, Darius Rucker, Adele, Tim McGraw, Sheryl Crow, just to name a few.
As a writer he’s had a number of hits, but he released his own album, “Traveler” in May of 2015 which won Album of the Year Wednesday night at the Country Music Awards. Stapleton himself won the title of Best Male Vocalist and New Artist of the Year.
This guy is legit and talented, and he’ll be around for a long time. Even if you’re not a huge Country Music fan, you’ll dig his soul and bluegrass vibes.0
