Before even taking home one award at Sunday night’s ACM Awards, Chris Stapleton was already the most talked about performer of the night when he was made the subject of the show’s opening monologue. Co-hosts Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley, as well as Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Charles Kelley and Thomas Rhett all took credit for “discovering” Chris’ talent and setting him on the path to his success today.

Chris told reporters backstage that the whole thing was a surprise to him. “You know it’s a strange thing and it’s a wonderful gift and I’m grateful for it. It was a pretty funny monologue I didn’t know anything about it and as soon as it started I though this is gonna go on and on. I thought it might have carried on throughout the night and I was a little worried about that ’cause it could have gotten darker and darker but I don’t know . . . it didn’t so we’re good. Who gets credit? Everybody. Everybody but me.”

Chris took home awards on Sunday for New Male Vocalist, Male Vocalist and Album of the Year for Traveller and Song of the Year for “Nobody To Blame” for both artist and producer.
