Kentucky-born Chris Stapleton got choked up while apologizing to his kids for being very busy.


On November 14, Stapleton, who is one of Nashville's most respected and beloved musicians, accepted the CMA Award for Male Vocalist of the Year, which was presented by television presenter Lara Spencer and country music singer Martina McBride.

As he accepted the trophy, he said, "I'm real proud of this award, and I try real hard to be a good singer, but I also wanna thank my kids who put up with me being gone quite a bit and not getting to be as good of a dad as I would always like to be."

In addition to his Male Vocalist of the Year award, he and singer-songwriter Mike Henderson won the award for Song of the Year for the song "Broken Halos," as well as the award for Single of the Year for the same track.


Stapleton has won a total of 10 CMA awards since 2015. He is presently the male country singer with the third most consecutive Male Vocalist of the Year CMA awards. Vince Gill and Blake Shelton both won five times in succession.


From 2008 to 2010, Stapleton sang lead in two bands before he started recording as a solo artist including a bluegrass ensemble called The SteelDrivers.

In 2015, he released his solo debut album, Traveller, which reached number one on the US Billboard 200 and was certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

His second studio album, From A Room: Volume 1, was released in May 2017. From A Room: Volume 2 was released in December 2017.
