Chris Stapleton has completely stolen the show at this year's CMA Awards, taking home the awards in all the categories he was nominated in: Album of the Year, New Artist of the Year, and Male Vocalist of the Year.
But it was Stapleton's performance that truly caught people's attention. Stapleton joined pop star Justin Timberlake for a duet of their hit songs "Drink You Away" and "Tennessee Whiskey."
However, one question remains. Who exactly is Chris Stapleton?
Stapleton has been active in the country music industry since 2000, starting out as a songwriter. He has a total of six number one songwriting hits to his name, penning the songs "Love's Gonna Make It Alright" for George Strait and "Come Back Song" for Darius Rucker.
Stapleton broke out as a singer in 2013, when he signed with a record label and started working on an album. His debut album, Traveller was released on May 5, 2015, and later went on to snag the CMA Award for Album of the Year.

One thing's for certain, after this year's CMA's, no one is going have to ask the question "Who is Chris Stapleton?" any more!
