Stapleton was honored with the Breakout Award during the live broadcast at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center. He sang his latest single, “Nobody to Blame,” for the star-studded crowd.
As you can see from the audience shots, country megastars like Kenny Rogers, Blake Shelton, Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line and Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum are clearly enthralled with Stapleton’s big talent.
You don’t have to worry that Stapleton is living out the lyrics to this sad country song. That’s his beautiful wife, Morgane, singing harmony vocals with him.
“Nobody to Blame” is included on Stapleton’s latest release, “Traveller,” which won Album of the Year at November’s CMA Awards. That release is also up for overall Album of the Year and Country Album of the Year at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards, airing live on CBS Sunday, February 15, 2016.
