Chris Stapleton is a force to be reckoned with in country music. Since he officially came onto the scene in 2015 with his debut album, Traveller, he has dazzled fans with his voice, songwriting, and guitar-playing skills.

When Chris makes an award show performance, it is usually an epic one and the talk of the show in the coming days and weeks. It’s been two months, and people are still talking about Stapleton’s performance of “Think I’m In Love With You” with Dua Lipa at the 59th Annual ACM Awards in May. The performance got a standing ovation and marked yet another incredible performance from Stapleton, adding to the list of standout awards show performances.

So, how did this collaboration come about? Chris says that it was actually Dua’s idea to team up together on the awards show. He said after the performance, “As far as I know, it was Dua’s idea (laughs).”

His wife Morgane added, “It was. She reached out.” Stapleton continued, “She reached out to the ACMs and suggested that we do something, and then we got on the phone with her, and she was just a wonderful person to talk to and collaborate with, and we knew that was going to work pretty much immediately from one phone call.”

The ACM Entertainer of the Year concluded, “It was very exciting and a very fun way to get to collaborate with somebody, and she’s a wonderful collaborator with a wonderful creative spirit and talent, and I feel very lucky.”

The live surprise performance was recorded live at this year’s ACM Awards in Frisco, Texas.

And since Post Malone announced his upcoming duet with Chris for his August 2024 country album release, fans have been chomping at the bit to hear the new tune.

Malone was jumping up and down in the recording studio and grinning ear to ear, listening to the playback of his new collaboration with Chris Stapleton. Posty shared a clip of his excitement in the studio on his Insta Stories and TikTok a month ago (6/26). He wrote over the video, “This one’s with @chrisstapleton.”

Part of the upbeat song, which we don’t know the title of yet, sings in the clip, “She said, Baby, give me one more kiss before I kiss you goodbye.”

Stapleton is a unique country superstar who does not release a music video for each of his songs, so when he does, it’s something to talk about.

Here are four of his best music videos over the years.

  • "Say Something" (2018)

    Justin Timberlake featuring Chris Stapleton – Timberlake is really the guy who jumpstarted Stapleton’s massive career when they performed together at the 2015 CMA Awards. The duo sang two of Chris’s songs, “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Drink You Away.” Chris said about the collaboration, “I really just went out to Los Angeles to write songs with him; it’s a very fluid process with him; there’s a lot going on. That was one of those things where there wasn’t necessarily a plan. He was like, ‘All right, you hop in there and take a verse,’ and I’m like, ‘You want me to do what?’ It came out great.” The music video on YouTube has received over 410 million views as of January 2024.

  • "Second One To Know" (2019)

    Stapleton released this video with the Lego group playing himself as a Lego character. The charming video has been viewed almost 2 million times on YouTube. He said of the video, “We had a lot of fun doing it, but it took maybe two years to get through all the approvals, and then a whole year on top to work on it. It’s been a long road, but in the end, I think it’s something really unique.”

  • "Starting Over" (2020)

    This music video is for the album title song that scored Chris a GRAMMY for Best Country Album at the 64th GRAMMY Awards. The footage shows Stapleton playing guitar in the recording studio, sitting on a stool. It also shows clips of himself and his wife Morgane, who sings in the song, listening back to it.

  • "Fire Away" (2016)

    The music video concept for “Fire Away” was conceived by Stapleton. The video follows a couple through courtship and marriage, going through exciting life moments such as buying and decorating a home together. The happy memories soon fade, dissolving into struggle and, ultimately, tragedy, as it is evident that the woman has mental illness and tries multiple times to commit suicide.

    The video won the Music Video of the Year award at the 2016 CMA Awards and Breakthrough Video of the Year at the 2016 CMT Music Awards.
