Chris Stapleton is tied with Dan + Shay for most nominations — six apiece — at the upcoming ACM Awards. Among Chris' nods are Entertainer, Song of the Year, Male Artist and Album of the Year for From A Room: Volume 2.
While Chris is grateful for every single trophy he's nominated for or wins, he tells us he has a special affinity for the Album categories “They are all significant and if you get one award for anything it’s a treat. But any of the awards that awarded the album, the album awards, because I really wanted to make an album that was good. I wanted it, I wanted that to be a thing, again, more than I wanted it to be, ‘Well here’s the single and eight other songs.’ So, the album awards for me were important in that we did our job in a good way, you know. Just I have such an affinity for albums that I don’t know if I want those more or if they mean more, but they are all meaningful. They are all are things that one of them would feel like a career. One of them. Any one of them.”
The ACM Awards will be held on Sunday, April 7th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The show, hosted by Reba McEntire, will air live on CBS.
