Chris Stapleton is nominated for “Entertainer of the Year,” “Single of the Year” as both artist and producer (“Nobody To Blame”), “Male Vocalist of the Year” and “Music Video of the Year” (“Fire Away”) at “The 50th Annual CMA Awards.” He’s also nominated alongside his wife, Morgane Stapleton, for “Musical Event of the Year” for their performance of “You Are My Sunshine” from producer Dave Cobb’s acclaimed Southern Family compilation. The awards ceremony will be broadcast on ABC live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, November 2 at 8/7c.
The nominations continue to celebrate Stapleton’s certified RIAA Platinum debut solo album, Traveller. The breakthrough album has gone on to receive multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM awards and continues to consistently top the Billboard Country Albums chart—over a year since its May 2015 release on Mercury Records Nashville.
