Chris Stapleton Doesn’t Sit Around Award ‘Shrine’ Of Himself
Over the last couple of years, Chris Stapleton has won countless awards, including several Grammys, CMAs, and ACMs. Last night, he won the top ACM honor of Entertainer of The Year. Backstage after his win, Stapleton said, “I’m humbled by it, and I feel very thankful for the people that voted and think that I’m deserving of that.” He added, “I’m not sure that I am, but I’ll take it.”
His many awards don’t even end up in his home in Tennessee. Chris likes to share them with the fans. He said, “Some of them, we put them out on the road in the VIP section for people to see. For the fans to see, that’s who they belong to. I don’t feel like they really belong to me. I don’t have them in my house or anything like that. I don’t sit around in a shrine of myself or anything. We try to make sure the fans get to see them and enjoy them as much as possible. Some are in the Country Music Hall of Fame and places where they can be enjoyed.”
So how will the 2023 ACM Entertainer of the Year celebrate his latest award? Stapleton offered, “I’m gonna go home. That’s how I will celebrate and wake up in my own bed.”
Stapleton joined Pink on her song “Just Say I’m Sorry,” which is from her latest studio album, Trustfall, released in February.
Pink posted on her Instagram, “I can’t believe this day is finally here!! I have been waiting almost patiently to share my heart and soul with all of you. This album means so much to me. It’s silly sauce. I hope this becomes the “I remember where I was when I listened to that album” for you. So many options, how do I choose?! Box sets, zines, vinyl. I want ’em all. #getitwhileyoucan #TRUSTFALL.”

The song opens with a country-sounding guitar lick. The lyrics include, “Just say I’m sorry / It’s not the hardest thing to do / Just say you’re wrong sometimes / And I’d believe you / ‘Cause I love you / Just say I’m sorry.” Stapleton joins her in the first verse, “Everybody wants to be / The one who’s right / Everybody wants the last word / To end the fight / Every day is a new day / With a chance to choose / Sometimes the way you win / Is to say you lose.
