Chris Stapleton: One Week After the CMA Awards

Tells Miranda Lambert He'll "Never Get Over" It

It’s only been a week since Chris Stapleton’s big CMA Awards sweep, and I’m sure he’s been busy playing shows, doing press, pinching himself and maybe even counting his incremental income. (According to Nielsen SoundScan, Stapleton’s album Traveller had sales totals the week before the CMA Awards of 2,356 copies, and the past week that number shot up to 153,428.)

Still can't believe this happened. Thank you Country Music! #CMAawards

But if you follow him on Twitter, you’ve probably seen how busy he’s been there, putting in time to reply to everyone’s well wishes.

Like when Miranda Lambert, who was wearing a Stapleton T-shirt at the CMAs, tweeted that she’d never get over his performance, he replied:

And when Taylor Swift sent her best, Stapleton did what any good dad would do. He thought of his kids.

When Kacey Musgraves told him that his win is a win for everyone, Stapleton said:

To Alan Jackson, he replied respectfully:

Same thing when Travis Tritt sent kind words his way.

When LeAnn Rimes said she loved the hat he was wearing at the show, he told her where she could get one:

And to Lee Ann Womack, who said her heart was happy about his wins, Stapleton admitted:

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
