Chris and Morgane Stapleton’s Love Story
Many people are curious if Chris is Married and who’s his wife. Chris Stapleton is married to singer-songwriter Morgane Stapleton. The two of them met while Chris was working at a Nashville Publishing House 12 years ago. His future wife Morgane was working at a neighboring publishing house as a writer and artist. She actually had a friend that worked with Chris and used to hang out in the office.
Chris finally asked her out to get together for a drink and a “songwriting session”. Well, that Friday afternoon ended up being the couple’s first real date.
The pair got married in 2007. and prior to the wedding, Chris had the words “You Are My Sunshine” secretly engraved into his wedding ring.
Morgane is 36 years old, which means she’s five years younger than Chris.

Chris recorded a song called “The Ballad of the Lonesome Cowboy” for this animated film, and that is why he was invited to the premiere.

That same year, Chris Stapleton won three awards in 2015 CMA Awards. He won the Album of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and New Artist of the Year.
