Like her award-winning husband Chris Stapleton, Morgane Stapleton is a powerful force in country music. The extremely talented duo have been married since 2007 and have a son and a daughter together. Chris and Morgane are much more than just romantic partners— they’re musical muses for each other too.
The couple first met though work in Nashville at the well-known Sea Gayle Music publishing company and their first date involved writing a song together. Morgane candidly described the beginning of their love story during an interview with the Washington Post, “We’d hear the jingle of his keys as he walked down the hall, and we knew he was coming to play us whatever new song he had written. Eventually he asked me to write a song with him, and that ended up being our first date. We didn’t get much writing done that night.”
Check out their hilarious and endearing Paste Magazine interview below.
Like Chris, Morgane has found ample success penning songs for other artists. The seasoned artist wrote “Don’t Forget To Remember” for Carrie Underwood and “You Ain’t Right” for LeAnn Rimes.
Country music phenom Chris Stapleton admits to enlisting his wife’s help to guide him to recording the right songs. “My wife has great taste in everything but men,” Stapleton quipped in the same Washington Post interview. “The vast majority of the songs on my debut album, ‘Traveller,’ came from lists she made.”
The couple certainly balances each other out and make a stellar team, but like all couples, they have their heated moments. “Oh, we drive each other crazy once in a while,” Morgane explains. “But being without each other drives us even more crazy.”
Gosh, there is so much electric chemistry between these two musicians. We love watching them on stage together and nabbing glimpses into their shared creative process like in the making of “You Are My Sunshine” video above.
