It was an awesome night for the very humble Chris Stapleton at the ACM Awards. Before the night even began, he had already been awarded with best new male vocalist a couple weeks prior. To follow, he was awarded song of the year for “Nobody to Blame.” Then something really special happened, Garth Brooks awarded Chris Stepleton, via satellite feed from Ontario, the album of the year award for Traveller. To top off the night, Stapleton was awarded with male vocalist of the year. He was awarded 6 ACM Awards in total for the evening which hadn’t been done since 1991 by Garth Brooks.
Chris Stapleton wasn’t the only one taking home awards for the evening. Miranda Lambert set a record for seventh consecutive Female Vocalist of the Year and Jason Aldean took home the biggest award of the evening, Entertainer of the Year.
