In Las Vegas on Sunday night, Stapleton, 43, won the Grammy Award for Best Country Album for his album Starting Over. In addition to his best country song and best country solo performance awards from earlier in the day, he also took home the best country song award for “Cold.”
“I’m thinking a lot about sacrifices, ’cause I missed out on some of their birthday today,” the father of five said after wishing his four-year-old twins a happy birthday on Sunday.
Starting Over is Stapleton‘s first release since his critically acclaimed 2015 album Traveller, as well as his 2017 follow-up to From A Room: Volume 1, From A Room: Volume 2, and From A Room: Volume 1.
In advance of the 2021 CMA Awards, Stapleton’s record has already been awarded Album of the Year. In accepting the prize, he turned to his wife and partner Morgane Stapleton in the audience and stated, “I want to say thank you again, I can’t do this without her ever.”
Meanwhile, “And I want to thank anyone who listened, every music listener, like country music aficionados,” he concluded.
