Chris Stapleton won all three awards for which he was nominated at this year’s Grammys.
The singer-songwriter won Best Country Album for Starting Over, Best Country Solo Performance for “You Should Probably Leave” and Best Country Song for “Cold.”
After winning five Grammys previously, the latest victories mark Stapleton’s eighth Grammy wins of his career.
Delivering his acceptance speech, Stapleton noted that his 4-year-old twins were celebrating a birthday.
“So I think a lot about sacrifices, because I missed out on some of their birthdays, and everybody in this room has made some kind of sacrifice to be up here doing this. I don’t know about everybody, but I know it hurts sometimes. Hopefully we’re doing it to make the world a better place,” said the father of five.
Stapleton took the stage together with his co-writers – Dave Cobb, J.T. Cure and Derek Mixon – to accept the Best Country Song award.
The singer acknowledged that his fellow “Cold” songwriters are the “guys that I do everything with.” Winning a Grammy for their song is “probably the greatest thing on Earth to me,” he added.
