Chris Stapleton Says Success Is A “fairy Tale”
The 52nd Annual CMA Awards are less than a week away, this year’s top nominee Chris Stapleton is getting ready to possibly add to his already extensive collection of industry awards. He goes into the Awards with five nominations, including Entertainer of the Year, as well as Single and Song of the Year for “Broken Halos,” Male Vocalist and Album of the Year for From A Room: Volume 2. This year marks Chris’ third consecutive nod for Entertainer.
He previously won Album for his first two solo albums, Traveller (2015), and From A Room: Volume 1 (2017). He also receives his fourth consecutive nomination for Male Vocalist of the Year, a category he remains undefeated in, having won the past three years.
All this success, on top of having a career that he loves, is almost too much to comprehend.
“It’s an unimaginable fairy tale of a thing, really. We’re so proud just to get to make music and go out and play it for people and make records, that’s the dream. And when you have all these other things that people are nice enough to give you, that makes the dream an even larger dream.”
Chris’ current collection of CMA awards totals seven.
