Chris Stapleton absolutely dominated with six ACM wins last night— tying the record held by Garth Brooks and Faith Hill. Brooks set the record 25 years ago and presented the “Traveller” crooner with the ‘Album of the Year’ award via satellite from Ontario, Canada.
Kentucky-born Stapleton also won ‘Male Vocalist of the Year’, a producer’s award for ‘Album of the Year’ for Traveller, and ‘Song of the Year’ as both the artist and songwriter for “Nobody to Blame.” The 37-year-old star accepted each award in his signature humble manner and thanked his talented wife, Morgane, during each speech.
He also performed “Fire Away,” harmonizing with Morgane, during the three hour ceremony. Last fall, Stapleton similarly dominated the Country Music Association Awards— and the GRAMMYs in February— this is a country music trend worth repeating.
