Chris Stapleton’s ‘Nobody to Blame’ Wins Song of the Year at the 2016 ACMs
Chris Stapleton's "Nobody to Blame" pocketed the 2016 ACM Award for Song of the Year on Sunday (April 3).
"I thought we were going to get girl-crushed on this one," Stapleton joked upon receiving his trophy.
This is the second time tonight Stapleton had the spotlight on him Sunday night. He was the center of attention during the opening monologue, where everyone was jokingly taking credit for his latest success. But there's no doubt he absolutely earned this win.
The song was penned by Stapleton alongside Barry Bales and Ronnie Bowman. "Nobody to Blame" is the current single from Stapleton's debut album, Traveller.
Stapleton is nominated for a total of five awards at this year's broadcast, including Male Vocalist of the Year, Vocal Event of the Year for “Hangover Tonight” with Gary Allan and is twice nominated as both artist and producer in the Album of the Year category for Traveller.
Prior to the show, Stapleton won the honor of New Male Vocalist of the Year. It's been a crazy year since the release of Stapleton's freshman record. He swept the CMA Awards in November and has been steadily — okay, quickly — making his mark in country music. He is becoming a must-see act on the road, which is why he add to add more shows on his summer tour. He added several dates in May, June and September so all of his fans get a chance to see him.
Stapleton will also be playing at the Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago this year as well as stopping by Nashville's CMA Fest.
