Chris Stapleton has secured the No. 1 spot at country radio’s Mediabase Chart this week with his recent album’s title track, “Starting Over.” Written by Stapleton and Mike Henderson, “Starting Over” becomes the Kentucky natives’ second chart-topping single as an artist following his 2018 hit “Broken Halos.”
This achievement comes just a week ahead of the 56th ACM Awards where Stapleton leads nominees with a whopping six nominations in four categories: Entertainer of the Year, Male Artist of the Year, Album of the Year (Starting Over as both artist and producer) and Song of the Year (“Starting Over” as both artist and songwriter). Stapleton is also slated to perform at the awards ceremony which will air on CBS this Sunday, April 18 at 7 p.m. CST.
These nominations celebrate a monumental year for Stapleton following the release of Starting Over which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart in November of 2020. The fourteen-track record Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb.
