Born in Lexington and raised in Staffordsville, Kentucky.

His songs have appeared on the albums of many artists, including Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, and Taylor Swift. He has also collaborated with a number of artists, including Vince Gill, Peter Frampton, Sheryl Crow, and Ed Sheeran.
Stapleton has a long list of honors and nominations. He has received eight Grammy Awards, ten Academy of Country Music Awards, fourteen Country Music Association Awards, five Billboard Music Awards, and two iHeartRadio Music Awards. He has received nine ASCAP Country awards, including the Vanguard Award, for his work as a composer. Stapleton was named the Academy of Country Music's first artist-songwriter of the decade in 2019. His album Traveller was named the Top Country Album of the Decade by Billboard.
This year, Chris Stapleton received widespread praise for his performance of the national anthem before Super Bowl 2023 in front of a crowd in Glendale, Arizona, following Sheryl Lee Ralph's "Lift Every Voice and Sing" and Babyface's "America the Beautiful." “Man, it felt great. It really did,” Stapleton said on Entertainment Tonight about the performance. “The energy was good, and the crowd was hyped up for the game, so that kind of gets you ready to go.” He also received high praise from fellow Country music singer Parker McCollum, "Chris Stapleton is the greatest singer of all time, and you can’t change my mind."
