Chris Stapleton SNL

Chris Stapleton spent years quietly honing his craft, both as an artist and as a songwriter, long before many people took notice. The singer-songwriter penned hits such as Kenny Chesney’s ‘Never Wanted Nothing More’ and ‘Come Back Song’ by Darius Rucker and fronted the bluegrass band the SteelDrivers and the Southern rock band the Jompson Brothers before launching his own solo career by signing to Mercury Nashville in 2013. Stapleton released his debut album, ‘Traveller’, in 2015; the disc’s title track landed in the Top 20 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, but the Kentucky native’s three wins at the 2015 CMA Awards, for Male Vocalist of the Year, New Artist of the Year and Album of the Year, put his career into hyper-drive. The artist is often joined by his wife, fellow artist Morgane Stapleton (nee Hayes), on stage; although they prefer to keep them out of the limelight, the Stapletons also have a son and a daughter.
