Chris Stapleton Reveals Kenny Chesney’s Hit Song ‘Bought Him A House’

What an amazing songwriter. 

Before Chris Stapleton stepped onto the CMA Awards show stage, he was writing hit songs for years. We will never forget November 4, 2015 AKA the day that Stapleton rocked the country award show stage with Justin Timberlake, but there is more to Stapleton than that. 

When we think of Stapleton we think: true talent. He can sing, perform, and above all he can write a damn good song. 

Just to name a few: 

Miranda Lambert’s “Nobody’s Fool” (2011)

Luke Bryan’s “Drink A Beer” (2013)

Blake Shelton’s “100 Miles” (2008)

Tim McGraw’s “Whiskey and You” (2007) 

Brad Paisley’s “The Best Thing That I Had Goin'” (2003)

And Kenny Chesney’s “Never Wanted Nothing More” (2007) 

There are more where that came from! However, the last song we listed has some special meaning to the singer/songwriter. 

In the live performance featured below, Stapleton performs Chesney’s #1 hit “Never Wanted Nothing More”. He reveals to the crowd that the song’s success bought him a house, and that is something he’ll probably never forget! 

Stapleton began talking about writing with his good friend, and one of Nashville’s resident songwriters, Ronnie Bowman

“[He thought] Why don’t we write a song that’s a hit? And what do you know, we did it. Then this happened.” He started to play the opening cords, “Bought me a house, thanks Kenny Chesney.”

Well that certainly doesn’t happen every day! We had no clue Stapleton co-wrote the 2007 hit, but it proves once again how lucky we are to have his music. 

Thanks, Chris Stapleton.
