Ever since that iconic performance with Justin Timberlake at the 2015 CMA Awards, Chris Stapleton has been the talk of the town in country music. Even though he’s a solo act, he shares his success and the stage with his wife, fellow songwriter and musician, Morgane Stapleton. These two are already being compared to iconic music duos Johnny Cash and June Carter! Similar to many country stars, Chris and Morgane live a relatively private life out of the spotlight, but we did some digging and found 7 things you probably didn’t know about their relationship!
7. How They Met
The two musicians met back in 2003 while Chris Stapleton was working at a Nashville publishing house and Morgane was working at a neighboring publishing house. At the time they both worked as songwriters. Morgane had a crush on Chris and conveniently also had a friend who worked with him, so she’d sit in her office at Sea Gayle Music and wait for Chris to walk by. “We’d hear the jingle of his keys as he walked down the hall, and we knew he was coming to play us whatever new song he had written,” she said in an interview with the Washington Post.
6. She Used to Sing to his Songs Before They Dated
Today these two share the stage for every performance, but their history singing together goes so far back that when Morgane first started singing along with Chris — he didn’t even know! “I was singing with Chris long before he knew I was singing with him,” she said in an interview with the New York Times. She would ask his publishing representative for “volumes of his songs, CDs of everything he’d ever written up until that point, and I would take them home and study and sing along.”
