Morgane & Chris Stapleton

Chris Stapleton's ACM's Album of the Year win was a bit overshadowed (in the BEST way) with the announcement by none other than Reba that Chris wasn't there to accept the award because he was at the hospital with his wife welcoming twins boys on April 15th.

Thank you for all the love! We’re so grateful to finally be home with our sweet family. We would like to say a special thank you to all the incredible nurses & doctors at Centennial Women’s & Children’s Hospital in Nashville. At more than a month early, we had a week long stay in the nicu & the incredible people there kept our boys healthy & happy. Words cannot express our gratitude for you all & what you did for our family. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! ♥️♥️
