Chris Stapleton is one country superstar who doesn’t release a music video for all his songs. He doesn’t even have a music video for his official single releases. So, it has to be pretty special when he releases a music video for a song.
With only a handful of music video releases in his career, the serial award winner has won two Music Video awards for his 2016 video “Fire Away,” which won Music Video of the Year at the 2016 CMA Awards, and for Breakthrough Video of the Year at the 2016 CMT Music Awards.
Music videos aside, in 2022, Chris said he’s written over one thousand songs, and during an interview with 6o Minutes, when asked how many of those songs were good, Chris replied modestly, “About ten.”
Stapleton also noted in the CBS interview that he had no idea a song would be a hit after he wrote it. He said, “I don’t think I ever know that. The win is finishing the song.”
He added, “There are a lot of songwriters who will claim that they know the secret [to writing a hit song]. I really think those guys are full of s—-. I don’t think anybody knows that. Like, you can’t possibly know how everybody’s gonna feel about a song that you write. That’s impossible to know.”
Chris said that when it comes to knowing a song is good, it has to be from the people, “I trust people, and I trust people with taste.”
We did a deep dive into the music video work of Stapleton, although there weren’t very many videos to see, and found four “official music videos” to detail. In true Chris Stapleton style, he makes sure, his music video work, much like his songwriting and recording work, is top notch.
