If there is one male artist in country music that is due for some much-needed mainstream success, it’s Chris Stapleton. The singer-songwriter is a force in the genre, and it’s about time he gets some radio play. After sitting at number seven on the charts just last week, Stapleton’s current radio single “Starting Over” soared to the top spot! It is now the number one song on country radio.
Despite how talented Stapleton is both as a songwriter and a vocalist, he has had some difficulty in his career getting the support of radio. Things have shifted lately, and Stapleton finds himself getting some justifiable mainstream recognition. Despite not always having radio support, The 5x GRAMMY-award winner has always been an industry favorite. “Starting Over” is the perfect song for Stapleton to shine with now for industry, fans, and commercial success alike. The title track to his latest album, released back in November, is all about keeping our loved ones close, a message we could all use!
“It don’t matter to me // Wherever we are is where I wanna be // And honey for once in your life // Let’s take our chances and roll the dice // I can be your lucky penny // You can be my four-leaf clover // Starting over”
“Starting Over” marks the singer’s third number-one single of his career, following the likes of hit songs “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Broken Halos.” We hope this new hit song starts a trajectory of even more for Stapleton.
Congrats to Stapleton and his team on the success!
