A First For Chris Stapleton
Hard to believe it’s taken so long but Johnson County native Chris Stapleton is number one. After scoring multiple Grammy Awards, CMA Awards, ACM Awards and No. 1 albums, Chris Stapleton has finally grabbed his first No. 1 single. Chris along with Mike Henderson wrote “Broken Halos” the second single from Chris’ 2017 album, From A Room: Vol. 1. Broken Halos came in at number one this week both Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts.
Although Chris has written several number one hits over the years I’m sure this one is a milestone he will cherish. It seems country radio might finally be coming around. Chris is proof it doesn’t take teams of writers, scores of studio musicians and a multi-million dollar marketing team to get you in the starts. It’s hard work, a loving fan base and most of all great songwriting. The stripped down production of Broken Halos topping the charts proves there’s hope for Country music yet.
